The PTSA is sponsoring a renovation for the teachers’ lounge.
The idea of the project began at the beginning of the year, when the PTSA received feedback from the school community on what the PTSA can do to improve Manual. The top project was decided by the board. Typically these projects are addressed by fundraising through Partners in Excellence.
“The board thought that improving the teacher lounge was a worthy idea but we could do it without using Partners funds. That’s why we are trying to get donations separately just for the lounge improvements,” said Pamela Wolford, a leader of the renovation.
They are now accepting donations for the project. An appeal was published in the PTSA newsletter urging teachers and parents to send checks to Manual PTSA, at 120 W. Lee St. Louisville, KY 40208, or drop it off at the Main Office. It also noted that checks must be made payable to Manual PTSA, and to put “Teachers’ Lounge” on the memo line. The project will start as soon as enough money is donated.
