Our building features a large library with a customized reading room and eight research stations. These stations are equipped with Destiny Quest, United Streaming/Discovery Education, a classroom set of iPads and many other valuable educational tools. Hallways and classrooms are brightly colored with modern art sculptures and an alphabet floor mural in our foyer. Festive banners can be seen outside classrooms with inspirational quotes by famous authors and athletes. A multi-purpose cafetorium with a raised stage, a gymnasium, our own rock wall, an outdoor fitness center, music room and computer lab are all special features in our new building. We have a school nurse and counselor who meet with students each week. Students attend P.E., music, library, computer and art class each week.. Mannsdale P.E. students can participate in the Mississippi Blues Fun Run, the Presidential Fitness Awards and local "Punt, Pass and Kick" competitions.
Our impressive staff has been given a common planning time each day to plan arts-infused lessons among each grade focusing on master artists and authors. We have adopted the Fountas and Pinnell "Guided Reading" approach to teaching reading along with guided reading lessons and writer's workshop. Our K-2 students learn problem solving and higher level mathematical skills. Stop by and tour our state of the art facility. Our enrollment in grades K-2 is approximately 650 students.
