The Manchester Township Board of Education thanked district staff for their dedication throughout the year at the November 28, 2018 BOE meeting. Superintendent David Trethaway presented certificates of appreciation to representatives of the district's employee units.
"American Education Week is in November and we like to take this time to recognize the different units that play a big part in educating our children," Trethaway remarked.
