MANSE: Counselor chosen to work at elementary schools
Elementary school counselors in Pahrump were a casualty of recent budget cuts, but this year realizing the need, the school board was able to fund one counseling position that the four elementary schools and Pathways will all share. Mr. Mike Abbiss was selected by a team of principals representing the schools. Abbiss began working in Pahrump on Monday, Dec. 3. He is assigned to Manse on Thursdays. After being introduced to most of the classes, Abbiss had a very busy day meeting with students on the playground and meeting with individuals and groups in his office.
Abbiss is also the parent of two Manse students.
Progress reports this term are due every three weeks.
In order to report progress for the full three weeks, most teachers will be sending them home on Dec. 17.
Students have gone to “Specials” music or PE only two days out of three all last year and this year.
In order to remedy the situation so they get to go every day, the school has changed the Specials for kindergarten. Starting on Wednesday, kindergarten students will have a structured recess/PE time every day.
The rest of the students will go either to PE or music every day. If parents have any questions, they are urged to contact Principal Visser.
RCMS: Box Tops campaign underway
Officials at Rosemary Clarke Middle School recently announced their Box Tops for Education Campaign.
Teacher Ben Veloz said if parents shop online for the holiday season, it’s a great opportunity to earn money for Rosemary Clarke Middle School.
“All you have to do is sign up as a user, go to the ‘Marketplace’ area and click on any of the following retail stores. It then directs you to their site. When you check out, a specific percentage is given to the school. I myself have shopped and have had great success with this. Even if you forget to go through boxtops, you can usually close out of the site before checkout, go through boxtops to open the site back up again, and your items may still be there ready to be purchased.
“Thank you for any contributions you make through your regular shopping online. If you are interested further in offering prizes to classes that collect the most boxtops, please contact me.”
