The Manitou Muse

Kaitlyn C, a Sophomore, has been going to Manitou for seven years. She has been writing for the same amount of time. Through the influence of her mother and friends, she has grown very fond of creative writing throughout the years. Due to the lack of creative writing classes at the school, Kaitlyn thought the school could use a place where creative art could be published and celebrated. Using this inspiration, she made The Manitou Muse, with the help of her teachers Dr. Robinson and Mrs. Rockenbach. She hopes that the Muse will be used as a creative outlet for students to express themselves. Along with creating the Muse, she is also the Student Editor of the site. Kaitlyn is also a Senior Reporter for the Prospector, MSHS’s newspaper.

New Manitou Springs School District App

Manitou Springs School District 14 has recently launched an official mobile app designed to enable parents, staff, students, and the broader community to stay informed regarding important issues, information, and activities underway within the school community. The free app, which proudly displays the MSSD14 logo, mascot, colors and content, can be downloaded for Apple iOS and Android.

The new app will provide families with 24/7 access to district alerts (school closures, etc.), news, calendars, lunch menus, directories, events, sports schedules and results, and more. New information feeds will continue to be made available in the app over the coming school year.

“Our new, official mobile app empowers everyone in the community to stay connected and up-to-date on the information that they want and need directly, from their mobile devices. It’s another great example of our commitment to communication, as we know that in order for families to get involved in school activities and functions, they must first be informed of them. We are excited about how our new app will help us communicate more effectively, and we hope it leads to a stronger, more connected school community overall.”
