    Mann Elementary School Fundraisers

    Mann Elementary School Please let our neighbors know that they can print out the PDF, and take it to Ralphs. When the cashier scans their rewards card, they scan the letter (only need to do it once), and we will get a percentage of $$ just for neighbors shopping there.   It’s a great way to give money to the school by just grocery shopping

     

    Bored?  Have a few hours of spare time?  We need your help!  Mann Elementary is always looking for volunteers passionate about literacy and helping kids learn.  Just a few hours a week can make a tremendous difference in our student’s lives, and you will be surprised at how much fun you will have!  Stop by the school office and pick up a VIPS (volunteers in public schools) form today.  Or, email us at mannpta@verizon.net.
