Leave your Mark on Manning!

Manning presents an opportunity to leave your mark on our school!

Our amazing Art Teacher Leisa Austin has designed a mural which she will install in the library:

To raise additional funds to replace the 7th grade lockers, PTA is selling each hand print for $100. Each hand print will be identified by the student’s signature. Sales are open to current Manning students and incoming 6th & 7th grade Manning students. To order a hand print, please complete the Leave your Mark Order Form. Sales are only open through May 4th, so place your order today!

Handprints will be completed by current Manning students during Access class throughout the month of May and by incoming Manning students during Access class next fall. Students will be contacted at school when it is their turn to Leave their Mark!

If you have previously donated $100 or more to the Locker Campaign, we will include your student in this program. Those in this group will be contacted by April 23rd.

Please contact Manning PTA Treasurer Kim Johnson at kimjohnsonco@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Penny Stall

What is a Penny Stall?

♦ Students bring as many coins as possible to their 1st Period Class on May 4th.
♦ Teachers work as quickly as they can to count all the coins.
♦ Class will not begin until all the coins are counted.
♦ The more pennies and other coins you bring, the longer class will be stalled!
♦ A variety of coins will take longer to sort and count ;-)

When is Manning’s Penny Stall?

Friday, May 4th – 1st Period

Where will the money go?

To help replace the 7th grade lockers!

What else?

The class that brings in the most money will win a doughnut party!

7th Grade Lockers

Manning PTA is working to raise $15,000 to replace the 7th grade lockers!

Our 7th grade lockers are

  • Colorful (you might say McDonald’s inspired)
  • Memory evoking
  • Compact

BUT, they are not functional. They are challenging to use and many do not lock.
Manning PTA has already raised $13,000 towards this project. This is a big project, so we’re still working! Donate today to help replace the lockers over the summer! Visit the Locker Fundraising page to donate! Any donation amount is greatly appreciated. The suggested donation amount is $100. Each locker will cost approximately $225 to purchase and install.
