Parent Volunteer Requirement Enrichment classes must have a PTSA member volunteer present during each and every class.  Unlike previous years, we need dedicated chaperones for each class to simplify the process for the enrichment volunteers and for the parents participating in the program.  If you would like to be a dedicated parent for fall quarter, we will guarantee a spot for your child and you get the class for free. You can also share responsibilities with a friend or contact parents who have kids participating in the enrichment program to fill in if you need a replacement for a day you can't be there.  Sign up at www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0F4DA9A92FA0F58-fall1 or email enrichment@mannptsa.org to sign up! For classes that do not have a dedicated parent, we may have to cancel classes. 

Chaperones must meet the following requirements:

* Must be over the age of 18. Can be parent, grandparent, nanny, etc.
