OUR COMMITTEES

Our committees are organized within four key categories to simplify the volunteer process and ensure we are working towards our long-term PTA goals.

FUNDRAISING

As a non-profit organization, the PTA relies on fundraising to provide outreach, fun, and enrichment. Your support provides a wealth of opportunities for our students!

FAMILY EVENTS

What would elementary school be without friends, family, and fun? Our Family Events provide our students with treasured childhood memories.

STUDENT ENRICHMENT

Our Student Enrichment programs compliment Manor School learning goals and initiatives and bolster the day-to-day  experience of each student.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Our Community Outreach programs give students the opportunity to practice being active community members. Students work together to build a stronger, better community.

PARP

Pick a Reading Partner (PARP) was developed as a program in 1987 by Senator Donovan, with the goal of linking home and school to develop and foster a love of reading. PARP asks a partner, such as a parent, grandparent, babysitter, older sibling, or family member, to read with a child for at least 20 minutes daily. The daily activity of reading together promotes reading for fun and information, builds reading and communication skills, and strengthens the relationship with his or her reading partner.
