     Message from  Principal Dr Laurie Mearsheimer

    School PrincipalAt Manatee Elementary, we believe high expectations yield academic success for all students and for the community as a whole. Be assured our entire staff is committed to ‘Leading the Way” to ensure that our Manatee students achieve academic excellence through becoming leaders of learning. As a parent, you are an essential link in your child’s education. The level of interest you show in your child’s education through Student-Led Conferencing, through school-wide events, and daily conversations about academic goals will demonstrate to them the value you place in their education. Please send your child to us each day rested and prepared, on-time, equipped with the proper materials, and encouraged. We, in-turn, will send them home to you prepared to meet the demands of the future. Your presence is not only welcomed, but it is greatly needed each and every day. We encourage you to join us as we lead the way to a successful year! The entire Manatee Elementary staff takes great pride in educating our students and will continue to teach our students to become leaders of their learning.
