Manor Heights Elementary provides a child-centered education through the implementation of essential learnings. The school, parents and community work in partnership to develop in each student academic excellence, social responsibility and personal integrity. Data-driven decisions, progress monitoring of skills, and collaborative efforts between all staff members contribute to the implementation of state and district standards. Tutors support with small group and one-to-one assistance throughout the school day, and an extended school day, Jaguar Club, provides assistance to students in the area of mathematics. Manor Heights’ learners will be able to access information through the appropriate use of written, oral and technological resources.
Manor Heights has an active Parent-teacher Organization that is involved in support the school through fundraising, volunteer work in classrooms, and sponsoring family math, art, and literacy nights and staff celebrations.
Parent-teacher conferences are held twice a year. Parents also will receive communications and newsletters from the school through folders sent home with students on Thursdays.
Manor Heights uses a Balanced Literacy framework to implement small-group, guided instruction tailored specifically to students’ needs. The framework features individual conferencing and differentiated learning strategies in order to achieve mastery of state and district standards. The Bridges mathematics program focuses on conceptual understanding with hands-on learning and an emphasis on math as a language to communicate mathematical reasoning. All students learn through a combined writing approach of 6+1 Traits of Writing and Step Up to Writing. Manor Heights’ students also have art, music, and P.E. classes.
Students may participate in Student Council, School Store, Science Fair, Fitness Club, Community Service Club, Lego Robotics, Geography Bee, Peer Recess Buddies, Jaguar Readers and Extended School Day - Jag Club (Mathematics).
Fifth- and sixth-graders may play basketball and volleyball through the Casper Rec Center.
Before- and after-school remediation is offered to at-risk students, and a homework club provides assistance at lunch.
Playground supervision is available for students before school starting at 8:35 a.m. Breakfast is served before school from 8:10 – 8:35 a.m.
Manor Heights recently implemented the Response to Intervention model of special education. Instructional practices are guided through progress monitoring of student performance and through student focus meetings.
Manor Heights also is home to the district center for all elementary Intensive Life Skills students, as well as two BASS (Behavior and Social Skills) classrooms; one serves students in kindergarten through third grade, and the other serves students in grades four through six.
