Volunteering in the Manson School District
On behalf of the Manson School District, I would like to sincerely thank you for volunteering in our schools. Your dedication and leadership to assist our school district, staff and students is greatly appreciated.
We are extremely proud of our community, parents, staff and students for their
commitment to “Continuous Student Learning.” This focus ensures that we provide opportunities for our students to be successful citizens. We are committed to helping everyone succeed in their role…students, staff and our partners within the community. Manson is a great place to live learn and be involved in an outstanding community.
Again, thanks for being a “Manson Volunteer.” We hope the experience is as
rewarding for you as it is for our students. Thanks for all you do to help kids succeed!
