National Night Out was a win for our residents and the Kings Manor Elementary PTO, which received a $1,100 donation from Woodridge Forest.
We hosted a dunk tank during the event offering attendees a chance to drop Kings Manor principal Stacey Paine into the water. The tank raised $200 in just two hours. Woodridge Forest kicked in another $900.
“We have a lot of support at KME from teachers, students and parents,” said PTO President Lisa Hughes. “It’s so important that communities like Woodridge Forest also provide their support. And we want to thank them for their support.”
The money will be used to help fund the new House System implemented at the beginning of the school year.
Each house contains students in Kindergarten through fifth grade along with school staff. These groups represent the “7 Mindsets” that promote the school’s social-emotional program and each will be represented by a different color. It will encourage students to “live” the traits, not just learn them. Whatever house students are assigned will be their house throughout their time at Kings Manor.
“It’s designed to make sure everyone feels included in a ‘house,’” Hughes said. “The houses are divided into colors. The PTO will provide colored t-shirts to the students and staff. We will continue to support this because we believe in this system.”
Hughes said that the PTO has many other fundraisers planned for the remainder of the school year, most prominent among them being the annual Boosterthon Fun Run on March 13.
We thank everyone who supported Kings Manor by taking their turn at the dunk tank!
At Woodridge Forest, supporting our schools is in our nature. Our students attend the rapidly growing New Caney ISD, and middle school students can walk to the on-site, award-winning Woodridge Forest Middle School.
