Mannford PTO Meeting coming up on August 1st!

Our first meeting of the school year is coming up this week on Thursday, August 1st. Check out the link to the right to check out the August agenda to see what we have planned. We want to encourage everyone to come and join PTO. Teachers, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, guardians and ANYone who wants to help out in the schools. Being a PTO member does not require you to volunteer for every function. We completely understand that everyone has a busy schedule, but there is a need in the schools for assistance. If you know of a need in the schools, we urge you to come to this meeting and voice your opinion, concern, or ideas. PTO members' children will receive a $1 off discount off of each and every PTO sanctioned event! That means your membership will have paid for itself by the end of the year and then some! We will be discussing the projects we want to tackle for the year as well as put forth our proposed budget. We even have goals of setting up scholarship money for graduating seniors! This year is going to prove to be an exciting one for PTO and we need your help to make it even greater! We will be playing a movie in a separate classroom for any kids that come to the meeting with their parents. Please come and bring your ideas and suggestions to the Upper Elementary on Thursday August 1st at 6:30pm. We will also have Pirate Wear and Pirate Bags available for purchase.

Since our first movie night in June was successful, PTO has decided to try and schedule a movie night for each month. For the month of July, movie night is July 26th from 6 to 8:30. Doors open at 6, movie starts at 6:30, doors are locked from 6:30 to 8. Admission of $6 includes pizza, pop, and popcorn. Extra concessions will be open and available during movie time. PTO members save $1 on  your child's admission for every PTO event, including movie nights. You can sign up for PTO while you are there!! We will also have a preview of the t-shirts that PTO will be selling for the school year, so come check out our "Pirate wear".  Parents, bring your kids and have them bring their chair, blanket, and pillow and join us for a fun night, while you go on a date or grocery shopping! Kids need to be picked up by 8:30! We cant wait to see you all!
