- 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.
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
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.
This month is Ability Awareness Month - Check out the latest lobby display.
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!
