Mannapalooza 2018


The Mann PTO annual fundraiser, Mannapalooza, is Saturday, November 10th at Wire! This event helps fund everything from enrichment programs to field trips. This year, we are looking to raise money for much needed repairs to the cafeteria. The event usually SELLS OUT so buy your tickets now!

There are only a few seats left at the table for...
  • THE most important social event of northwest Oak Park!
  • THE most unforgettable night you’re likely to (open bar) forget.
  • THE most elegant night of elegance, intrigue, and cafeteria improvements.
  • THE one and only Mann PTO fundraiser. 
Auction items are still needed! 

We still need auction item donations! Here are some ideas that have been big money-makers in the past:

  • hosting a sign-up party
  • sports tickets
  • professional services
  • a night on the town
Imagine what unique items and experiences you would open your wallet for, then donate those!

Pay Your Mann PTO Fees Online

We have received PTO fees for only 260 of our 492 students.  We know everyone is busy, but please prioritize this. The fee is $15.00 per child and is used for class t-shirts as well as party supplies - Halloween parties are right around the corner and t-shifts designs are headed to the printers.  We appreciate your follow through!  Please contact Ms. Lottie for financial assistance. And contact the Mann PTO Treasurers with any questions you have.

NOTE: there are no more credit card fees for online payment!

Need Book Fair Volunteers!

The Book Fair benefits the Mann School Library, and is the second largest PTO run fundraiser throughout the school year.

The Book Fair is ongoing the week of parent-teacher conferences, and you can donate as little as an hour of your time, or as much as you would like.  Most shifts are fairly low key, and some get quite busy, either way, grab a friend and sign up together and you won't be bored.  Volunteer duties include tallying up purchases, helping parents/students find titles, and tidying up from time to time.

Also, student engagement programming for Ability Awareness Month will include an essay contest/raffle for a gift certificate to the Happy Apple Pie Shop!  The Happy Apple Pie Shop employs individuals with disabilities.  Students are asked to draw a picture and write a few sentences about a person (famous or unknown) who is living with a disability.  They are encouraged to read books and interview friends or family members. 

For every essay, students will receive an additional raffle ticket.  The more tickets, the more chances to win! Essays should be rendered to Ms. Bell in the front office!
