Dear MANS Member Schools, Staff, Colleagues, and Friends:

MANS staff is excited to announce the creation of the MANS Faith-Based Office Professional Award, MANS Faith-Based Educator Award, and the MANS Faith-Based Administrator Award as part of the five MANS honors that recognize excellence in education.  These “new” awards build upon other MANS awards including the Fr. Zwers Pastor Award and the Ivan E. Zylstra Award that recognize champions in faith-based schools.

We are confident that these recognitions will add extra energy and excitement to the upcoming MANS Administrative Professional Day on August 2, 2018 as well as the MANS General Conference on October 18-19, 2018 and next year’s Administrators’ Conference in Traverse City on October 16-18, 2019.

Please take time to register today for the 2018 MANS Education Conference and Expo, Educating with Passion and Purpose. This promises to be an outstanding professional development opportunity as well as a time for renewal and growth.

As you can see from the MANS Notes, staff has been busy putting together a robust schedule of professional development opportunities ranging from Law Day to Creating Pathways to offerings from the Michigan Equitable Services Collaborative which allows all private school educators in Michigan the chance to learn cutting edge information to strengthen their classrooms and improve every student’s educational experience.


MANS Executive Director
