Dear Parents,

The Mannington School offers the best in public education. The staff is highly qualified and goes above and beyond to serve the students and community. The students are supported by you, caring parents that understand the value of an education. The resources and experiences provided at the Mannington School are ever growing and developing to help the students remain competitive and ensure they received a top notch education that affords them many future opportunities. Many beliefs and routines about education are established during the elementary years and it is our collaborative responsibility to lay a strong educational foundation that will allow the students of Mannington to experience lifelong success built on the basics established during these years.

The first schools in the United States were established in the early colonies in the 17th century. By 1910 thirty states had compulsory education laws and as a result seventy-two percent of American children attended school. In 1918 all states required students to attend elementary school. Education continues to evolve and change to meet the needs of society and the young people of the future. New standards, new assessments, new technologies, and new challenges make education an ever changing practice.  Together we will weather the changes and stay ground in the traditions of education that have managed to prevail over time.

The Mannington School community is filled with caring, passionate, and dedicated individuals who expect no less than the best.  There is no doubt that when we all work together we contribute positively to the lives of the children. When we give the children our best they reap the best of each of us.

Thank you for entrusting your students to us and for being a true partner in education. Please feel free to contact me if you have a question or concern, and welcome to another school year.


Yours in education,

Ms. Kristin Williams, CSA
