This week has been dubbed "TRASH THE TROJANS" week for Mannford's homecoming. That means lots of spirit filled activities for the whole family to enjoy. We hope to see everyone out there cheering on our Pirates!
Ongoing all week, the OSU/OU Change Drive through ScholasticOne for books will be collecting loose change. The Library (OSU) vs. the Office (OU) competition has ensued and will take place starting Monday, September 30th, all the way through the end of the Book Fair, on October 16th. Students are encouraged to bring spare change to fill up the tub of their preference, either OSU (GO POKES!) or OU (BOOMER SOONER!). The losing "team" will have to wear the other team's colors to school for one day. The best part is that ScholasticOne will MATCH the amount of the final count that is donated in the buckets. The buckets are displayed in the window of the office at the Lower Elementary.
On Thursday, October 3rd, the district will celebrate with a bonfire at the Four Diamonds Field parking lot. The Bonfire will start at 7pm and there will be games and live music provided by Sean Adair. Concessions will be available.
There will be a pre-game tailgating party from 5 - 6:30 pm in the High School's west parking lot. PTO will have a booth set up and will be selling our NEWLY designed hoodies and long sleeve t-shirts! Be sure to stop by and purchase yours! Volunteers are needed to help with this booth, please get with Patti if you can help, even if its for a short period of time!
Also at 5 to 8pm is the First Annual Friday Night Lights! Taking place in the Lower Elementary parking lot, Friday Night Lights is a tailgating party to kick off the Book Fair. This is a family event to raise money for the library. There will be hot dogs, candy, pop, Gatorade, water all being sold for $1. Come shop at the opening night of the book fair and if you wear purple, your name will go into a drawing for a "basket o' books"!! If you spend $20 or more, you will get a "freebie" and if you buy a book for a teacher, you will get a grab bag. Teacher's wish list books will be available for viewing all during the book fair. Volunteers are needed to help with this activity, so please get with Patti or Mrs. Morrow if you can help.
The Coronation Ceremony is before the game at 7pm. And then the Kickoff between the Pirates and the Trojans is at 7:30pm. Please show your school spirit and come out and support our Pirates!
