PTO

Manhattan Catholic Schools PTO is a source of secondary support to the school. There are countless ways to volunteer, meet other parents, support your child's classroom experience, and financially support MCS through the PTO.

 

Some of PTO's sponsored events:

 • Assemblies: MCS is part of a district-wide (USD 383) arts consortium whose main function is to provide a means for students to appreciate the arts. This may include plays by college or high school students, ethnic performances, musical groups, etc.
• Awards Picnic: PTO & Booster Club co-sponsor an awards picnic in the spring, recognizing students' achievements in citizenship, sports, attendance, academics, etc.
• Catholic Schools Week: PTO pays for student and teacher activities to celebrate CSW, such as student bowling, teacher appreciation lunch, etc.
• First Communion & First Reconciliation: PTO budgets funds for receptions to celebrate First Communion and First Reconciliation.
• Eighth Grade Graduation: The ceremony and reception for eighth grade graduation is sponsored by MCS PTO.
• Picture Person Program: Parent volunteers visit their child's classroom 5-7 times per year to share artwork with the students. Training is provided!
• Room Parents: Parents assist teachers in planning classroom parties 4-6 times per year. This involves coordinating supplies and activities needed for the party. Other parents may be asked to assist the room parents.
• William Allen White: PTO pays for student and teacher tickets to attend this annual awards event, as well as trip snacks. Students in grades 3-8 are eligible to participate.
• Field Day: PTO provides a light snack and other supplies as needed for field day.
• Teachers' Fund: Annually, PTO provides a gift to each teacher and the principal, earmarked for computer supplies or classroom technology.
• Teachers' Lounge: PTO provides meals throughout the year, such as Welcome Back lunch, potlucks during conferences, and provides coffee and supplies for the teachers' lounge.
• Teachers' Party: A holiday party for MCS teachers and staff, with their spouses is annually paid for by PTO.
• Wish List: Teachers and Principal Hulshoff compile a wish list for PTO to support as funds are available.

Booster Club

 Introduction to Luckey Junior High Booster Club Spring 2024 1.pdf 

Booster Club supports the MCS athletics and Scholars Bowl teams. Volunteers support the Booster Club through concession stands at home volleyball, football, and basketball games. MCS Booster Club also serves as the spirit coordinators for athletes -- decorating lockers, having a watermelon feed, snacks for and cheering on the teams to victory! 

Booster also is in charge of the K-State Football game parking lot fundraiser which helps pay for sports expenses.  Keep an eye out in July for more information on how to purchase your spots located on the Northwest side of the Manhattan Surgical Center and via Christi Hospital off of Kimball Ave.

Spirit Wear is offered to families via an email from our office during the school year, usually in the beginning of the sports season.   For this year's spirit wear please go to ACB Design (acbdesignmhk.com) and click on the MCS tab.

Booster Club also offers membership to families which allows them to enter all home games for free and depending on the level chosen the name or logo (of a business) will be added to the sports program.  Forms are also sent to current school families via email from the office &/or Booster Club.

2023 KSU Parking Pass

Pre-Paid Convenient Parking that directly supports MCS and Ascension Via Christi hospital!

The 2023 parking passes have sold out! 

Pre-pay for your hard surface spot today! These spots are conveniently located directly west and just across the road from Bill Snyder Family Stadium!

The K-State football parking lot is back for another year! This is an amazing fundraising opportunity for Manhattan Catholic Schools.

Purchase your season pass today! These passes are sold on a first come, first serve basis and there are approximately 74 spots available. With your purchase, you will receive a pass for each of the 7 KSU home football games to place on your dashboard. Your pass guarantees your vehicle a paved parking space for each home game, but not a particular space (spaces not assigned). We will have individuals directing cars to fill the lot efficiently and to help avoid anyone getting blocked in. The lot will open four (4) hours before game time, and will close 30 minutes prior to game time. If we still have spots available in the reserved asphalt area at that time, we will open the lot to the general public. TO ENSURE YOU HAVE A PARKING SPOT, you must be at the lot 30 minutes prior to game time. Manhattan Catholic Schools will not be responsible for any damages that may occur on this lot.
