acorn gsManor Elementary School's mission is to provide authentic learning opportunities, bringing students and community together for enriched content studies and real life experiences. We recognize that students learn in different ways. We know that learning is strongest when school is partnered with family and community. Through role modeling, we remind our students of the joy that comes with “learning something new each day.”

Principal's Message

Welcome back to School!
School should be a place of discovery, wonder, joy and magic. It should be a place filled with excitement and enthusiasm - a place where both adults and children love to learn. As a staff, we work hard to create this magic and to inspire and motivate children to be the best they can be. We have a fantastic teaching staff, an amazing parent community, and of course, a superb student body. I am inspired and motivated every day to work with this community to reach our collective goals. I am excited for the 16-17 school year to begin and to continue creating the best education possible for our students.


Best regards,

Peg Minicozzi

Manor Kindergarten Orientation Date Change

Dear Parents/Guardians,
Due to Tuesday night’s storm, the Board of Trustees has scheduled a special meeting on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 from 6-8pm in the Wade Thomas Multipurpose Room (150 Ross Avenue, San Anselmo) for the purpose of repeating the presentation/discussion of item E-1 Charter Facilities Allocation.
Because this date conflicts with Manor’s Kindergarten Orientation for next school year, the Orientation date has been changed.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  The new Orientation date will occur after New Student Registration begins, so we encourage parents/guardians to check out the District website to become familiar with the new student registration process as we have made changes.  We are excited to begin using an online enrollment system, and, as such, all registration information and materials are available online.  There are two components to new student registration, online and in-person.  Online Registration begins Friday, January 20, 2017, and in-person registration begins Monday, January 30, 2017 at the student’s school of residence.  You do not have to wait until Kindergarten Orientation to begin the registration process for your child.  Go to to get started.  If you have a student currently attending TK in RVSD, you do not need to re-register him/her.
And, please join the Manor community for Manor School’s Kindergarten Orientation on Tuesday, January 31st from 6:30 – 8 pm in Room 2.   During this evening, you will learn about Manor’s wonderful kindergarten program, our new partnership with Expeditionary Learning, and some highlights of their program in grades 1-5.  You will also receive an overview of the registration process and hear from Manor’s PTA presidents and a YES Foundation representative.
Feel free to forward this email to families you know will have an incoming Kindergarten student next school year and who are not yet attending a Ross Valley school.
Thank you and we are looking forward to a great evening!
Best regards,
Peg Minicozzi                        Dr. Rick E. Bagley
