    Hello Mangum Family!!!

    In an effort to keep the community better informed about the curriculum at Mangum and how students, staff and parents are impacted I will maintain a weekly blog that provides curriculum updates, answers questions, and gives everyone the "pulse" of instruction at Mangum. This is meant to be interactive, and I hope parents ask questions about the acadmic aspect of Mangum. The format will be simple and straight forward, you can participate by leaving comments at the bottom of the page.

    Check out the first edition below!!!

    Thanks for participating,

    Tyler
