Manor School

Marin's first Expeditionary Learning School!

  • #Find the helpers

    Hello Manor students - Mr. Fred Rogers said that when he was a kid and there was something worrisome happening in the world, his mom told him to look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping. I challenge you to do the same. Find the helpers in your community or in the world and send me an email or photo about it. I will post it here. We are Crew!

                                                                                         "The helpers in my community are the grocery

                                                                                          clerks, my brother who is a firefighter, and my

                                                                                          teacher." -Nalu Williams, Gr.4
