Why parents need to be patient with their school-age kids
By Jessica Lahey, The Boston Globe
(from October 31, 2018)

I met her last May, when I was talking to a large group of middle school students about school, anxiety, and mental health. We were just wrapping up, and I asked them to share a few things they would like me to tell their parents at the parent assembly that night.

If you have a child who is a sibling (new to Manzano Day School) who will be applying for the 2019-2020 school year, we need your completed application and parent questionnaire along with the $80.00 application fee. If you want your child’s admission file to be in the “sibling preference pool” (please see your Family Handbook, page 33) you must have his/her admission paperwork, as stated in the Handbook, completed by Saturday, December 15.

If you have questions, please stop by and see Madonna or Karroll, or call either one of us at 243-6659.


We all are busy, and this is a good time to remind ourselves how important our families are to us. A great way to show your children how much you care is to have dinner as a family. Having dinner together is a great way to know what is going at school, who is your child’s best friend, what book your child is reading, etc. There are many advantages to eating as a family. Here are a few:

  1. Children of families who eat together do better in school
  2. Children of families who eat together get along better with other children
  3. Children of families who eat together eat more nutritious meals
  4. Eating together teaches family traditions and builds stronger families
  5. Eating together teaches dinning etiquette
  6. Eating together saves money
  7. Family meals are a great time to practice family values and spiritual beliefs


We all find ourselves busy, but eating together is a great way to have family time. The meal does not have to be fancy.  If you have to, turn off the phone and the TV. Talk about what went on during the day. The important this is to have time together as a family.
