Through a series of observations, we have been gathering information about what we know about the Manchester community. This week we began to organize this information and have discovered that most of what we have observed can fit into the following categories — Transportation, People, Buildings, and Outside & Nature. We still have a few walks to take, subcategories to agree upon, and one or two existing lists to organize. Stay tuned as we consider the choices that people made in designing Manchester and how these choices support and reflect the needs and wants of the people in the community.

Fall Exploration



Alexandra will be joining us for a second session each week to work with the 5/6s through the 7/8/9s on yoga and mindfulness practices. The first session was a smashingly calm and steady success for all of the 5/6s & 6/7s! This may be just what the doctor ordered.
