Other Celebration Opportunities:
  • Return of the “M” tradition on the mountain.
    We have been partnering with the City of Manitou Springs to bring back the tradition of the letter “M” on the mountain (next to the water tower).
  • Time Capsule
    We will have an opportunity for a time capsule to be dedicated to the district to be opened in the year 2072.
    Students will lead this opportunity.
  • Day of Giving Back: Service to our Community (Manitou Springs, Cascade, Green Mountain Falls, Chipita Park)
    We will coordinate a day to clean up our communities together–with students, staff, families, and community members.
  • Create “The Mustang Way” a connector trail to the Intemann Trail
    This trail development will be in partnership with Manitou CATS and include high school student, staff, and parent volunteers. There will be a celebratory dedication of the trail once it is complete.
  • Other Opportunities as they arise…

*Manitou Springs Elementary School also turns 100 years old this year. There will be other celebrations around the school’s anniversary.
