Annual Trip Announced
NewTech@Mann Annual Trip Update – each year, NewTech@Mann students have the opportunity to travel to a theme park on their designated education days to learn about the roller-coasters and attractions through the lens of various subject areas. Our destination this year will be to Carowinds. Our date for visiting this location will be May 1.
The cost for tickets will be $80.00. This price includes admission to the park, transportation, and a lunch buffet. Students can pay with cash, check, or money order. Checks should be made out to JL Mann High School. Once paid, students will also receive a permission form to be signed and returned.
Please be advised, we are limiting slots to attend the trip to 102 students and slots will be first come, first serve. Mr. Mobley will start accepting money on March 2 through March 19 or until slots are filled.
Applications are Live for 2020-2021 School Year
We would like to take a minute to talk about a program that is available for students in our school called NewTech@Mann. This school-within-a-school uses real-world projects to make learning authentic and meaningful. In these classes, students work primarily in groups to improve collaboration and communication skills while tackling problems that are realistic and simulate experiences they may have in their future careers. Over the past four years, students in this program have scored exceptionally high on standardized testing. If you think your student would be interested in this program, we are now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year. You can access the application form via the following link now:
