It won’t be long before the alarm clocks will be signaling the start of another school year for the IKMManning CSD. Before we can send those students off to school we need to start the registration process.  This year registration packets will be sent out to all families with a JMC e-mail address and mailed to those that do not. If you do not have an e-mail packets can be picked up at all offices or call the Central Office to have one sent directly to your home. All information can also be accessed at the IKM-Manning website. The registration needs to be filled out and returned to the school; with payment by August 9.  If you prefer to pay in person, you may do so on Monday, July 29 AM – 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM.

Just a reminder on some of the changes parents will encounter for this 2013-2014 school year. In an  effort to get all of our classes together Irwin Elementary will house all 1st and 2nd graders, along with one kindergarten and an all-day preschool. Manning Elementary will house all 3 a morning and afternoon preschool, and an all day AK, and one kindergarten. Manilla will still house grades 5 thru 8. Any changes to bus routes and shuttle times will be distributed the first of August.

The maintenance staff has been very active in getting the school ready with an added sidewalk to the 

greenhouse, moving classrooms to and from both elementary buildings, new lockers in the high school 

and added commons in the front lobby, and drainage/parking lot work to the entrance at Manning 


Enjoy what time you have remaining with your family and if you have questions I can be reached at

Yours in education,
