Imagine Day at Manor School

Imagine Day is Manor's biggest event of the year and is scheduled to be held on June 16th. Your Manor School Committee is pulling together all interested friends, family, and community members excited to make this event a huge success for the kids and asking them to join the Imagine Day Planning Committee. As a Committee Member, you will be at the forefront of planning this event: picking activities for the event, sourcing materials, helping coordinate volunteers, and getting everyone hyped up. Planning Committee meetings will be held during the school day at Manor - typically towards the end of the school day - a couple times per month up until the event in June. Attendance at every meeting is NOT mandatory, but being able to make as many meetings as possible is always helpful. PTA membership is NOT a requirement to becoming a Committee Member. If you are interested in joining the Imagine Day Planning Committee to help make this event a huge success, use the Sign Up Genius link below. If you know of any family/friend/community members that would like to be on this committee, please share the link with them.
