Mann MS will begin to host Parent Workshops sponsored by the Ballard Center in January. We will be offering parent classes for Somali, Karen, Latino and African American families. We are looking to partner with San Diego Community College District in offering English as a Second Language and Parent Education classes for credit. Some parents have expressed interest in forming a Parent Teacher Organization or Education Foundation, if you would be interested in these organization or contributing your time or donation, please contact Debra Bralla at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay tuned for more details.
