MZ FFO Update

Be In The Know With Your FFO!


4/24/15 at 8:15 a.m. in the Library

Super Special Guest: Come meet Manzanita’s new Principal, Kim Boling!

Thanks to everyone for participating in our ‘Under The Sea’ spring book fair last week! And HUGE THANK YOUS to all who helped make it happen! The kids really enjoyed sharing their wonderfully creative ‘fish’ and, hopefully, they found some great new stories to start their summer reading libraries.

As the finish line is fast approaching, we hope you have marked your calendars and are able to join us for the following family-fun events to round out another wonderful and productive year at Manzanita:

  • Our fabulous Mrs. Nixon has been working all year long with her inspiring junior artists (aka the students) and the art show committee to put together another fabulous Art Show Week for all Manzanita families! The MPR will be transformed into a beautiful art gallery open to everyone (at no cost) May 4th-8th. Family Night will be held Tuesday, May 5th, from 4-6. I promise you do NOT want to miss it; EVERY child will have at least one piece of awesome artwork displayed. It’s one of the most heart warming school-wide events of the year!!! It’s also a really fun event to help set-up and takedown. Please click here to volunteer and contact Suzie Stadheim and Jaclyn Callahan at  with any questions.
  • Mark your calendars for the Variety Show, a family-fun Friday night of great entertainment at Catalina Foothills High School on May 8th at 6pm. Please contact Teri Meeks at with any questions. Break a leg, Mustang Super Stars!
  •  And, finally, for our big kids on campus...sniff, sniff... the 5th Grade Promotion ceremony will be held on the last day of school, Wednesday, 5/20 at 9 a.m. on the lower field. Don’t forget your cameras (and tissues,) 5th Grade Families!
