MNW Seeks Host Families for Next Year
For four years, we have partnered with Educatius to bring international students to study here at MNW. Students are fully insured, have their own spending money, speak English, and committed to maintaining good grades. The requirements for host families are simple: have a genuine willingness to share your family's daily life with an international student; provide a bedroom for the student with a bed, desk, and closet space; feed the student breakfast and supper on weekdays, plus all weekend meals, and pass an interview and background check. If you are interested, email or call Kelli Girard at the high school (email: kgirard@manson-nw.k12.ia.us).

MNW is hosting Large Group Speech Contest on Saturday, January 21. Hosting contest pays for all of our costumes, fees, and other team-related expenses.  We need your help!

FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT
We're excited to release our school's new website. Here you will find all the usual items like the school lunch calendar and a calendar of upcoming events. But now teachers and coaches can update their own pages, so you'll find the results of the latest Cougar basketball game on the girls' basketball page, a link to the MNW Band Handbook with this year's performance calendar on the Cougar Pride Bands page, and a list of Mr. Olson's favorite books on his page. We haven't forgotten the elementary! You'll find MNW's Preschool page with class hours, videos made by our own students on the PBIS page, and a link to the online catalog on the Library page. We will update early and often!
