A Message From

Our Principal

Gabriel Wylder

 I would like to invite you to share with me what makes you a proud member of the Mann community and what I can do to help our school move forward together. I look forward to building these relationships and learning together with the staff. I firmly believe that every child can learn at high levels and that regular collaborative opportunities are important not just for student learning but professional learning as well.
