On the afternoon of Wednesday, October 5 IKM-Manning Juniors and Seniors participated in a volunteer day helping senior citizens with house and yard chores. This is the fourth year students have stepped up and responded to a MRHC Community Health Needs Assessment committee request. The committee first approached the school three years ago to see if student volunteers could assist senior citizens around the city of Manning with various tasks. The Community Health Needs Assessment committee chose the date, lined up the jobs helping senior citizens, and provided adult volunteers to supervise the student workers. Student response to the request was good with 23 juniors and seniors giving up an early out afternoon to work with the adult volunteers raking lawns, cleaning gutters, washing windows, moving heavy objects, and a variety of other tasks. Several volunteers also worked at the Heritage Park. The afternoon of community service gave IKM-Manning juniors and seniors a chance to interact with adults in the community and earn hours toward the Silver Cord program recognizing students for their community service.
Congratulations to Seniors Nick Birks and Scott Halbur. They each were named Commended Students in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program. Commended Students placed among the top 5% of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2017 competition by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
Rich Wig of Monsanto presented IKM-Manning with a $25,000 America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Grant Friday August 26, 2016 at the home football game. School districts are considered for the grants from the nominations made by farmers to the Monsanto Fund. Schools are eligible to receive $10,000 or $25,000 to fund math and science projects that broaden the curriculum and add additional learning opportunities for students. In 2016, the fund will award an estimated $2.3 million through distribution of the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Grants across the country. Present to receive the award on behalf of the district were: IKM-Manning Ag Instructor, Ben Booth; members of the IKM-Manning FFA; Superintendent, Dr. Tom Ward; IKM-Manning School Board members; and representatives from the group of 41 farmers who nominated the school district for the award.
The Office of the Chief Information Officer is in the process of replacing the School Alerts system. GovDelivery has been selected as the replacement service. School Alerts, as it existed ended on June 30, 2016.
ANYONE wishing to receive alerts pertaining to the IKM-Manning School District MUST sign up for a new account.
Go the school home page and click on the link at the top of the page to be directed to the sign-up page for the new system.
Users will now have the option of choosing which of the schools in the IKM-Manning district that they would like to receive alerts for.
This is a change from the past as the IKM-Manning district sent out alerts as a district wide announcement regarless of the topic of the announcement.
