The Manchester Memorial Elementary School PTO strives to complement and enhance classroom instruction through external enrichment programming. Working with teachers in each grade, the PTO funds and/or  facilitates age-appropriate programs in music, science, culture, the arts, literature, and the environment - just to name a few!
MMPTO programs are a mix of beloved and much anticipated favorites that inspire our children immensely each year. With equal focus throughout the year, MMPTO also seeks new enriching wonders to bring to our children at Memorial Elementary.
