Activities and Events

We’ve got a lot planned for the 2017-18 school year, and would love your involvement! Attend a PTA meeting, sign up to volunteer, or just come to an event!  Below is a list of what’s currently in the works.

  • After School Programs – now available at MWES via the Howard County Parks and Recreation Dept. Information will be sent home in September.
  • Back to School Picnic – held annually at Manor Woods in September
  • Barnes & Noble Bookfair – held annually at B&N in Long Gate Shopping Center. This year, it will be on Wednesday, October 25th.  Please consider volunteering!
  • Cultural Arts – sponsored solely by the PTA and funded through dues, fundraising and grants, activities are chosen with the goal of exposing students to as many different art forms as our budget allows each year.  In the past, we’ve offered in-house field trips to a mobile planetarium, mobile mining, the Howard County Conservancy, Field Day with the Native American Dance Troup, the MRHS Jazz Band performances, performances from the Kinetics Professional Dance Company, STEM Day, and more.
  • Family Fun Day
  • Family Reading Night & Ice Cream Social
  • International Festival
  • Kindergarten Welcome Playdate
  • PTA Variety Show – This annual event showcases the many talents of our Manor Woods students. Participation open to all grades.
  • PTACHC Winter Coat Drive – The PTA Council Howard County (PTACHC) holds its annual Winter Coat Drive in October. They accept your new or CLEAN, gently used coats, hats, scarves, mittens, and gloves and donate them to needy students and their families in our community. Coats should be sorted in bags according to size (e.g. baby, toddler, child, adult). Thank you to all who give the gift of warmth to our families in need.
  • Teacher Appreciation Week
