•  Activities at Manatee Elementary

    At Manatee Elementary, there is a lot more to education than just learning in the classroom. Students have many opportunities to get involved outside the classroom, which allows them to grow academically and socially as well as promoting self-confidence and leadership skills.

    Clubs and Organizations

    Gentlemen's club

    The Gentlemen's Club is a during-school hours club started by our Student Support Specialist, Mr. Watkins, as a fraternal organization where boys of all grades help others and make a difference in our school. Students may join throughout the school year with a recommendation from their teacher. Children are recommended on the basis of their potential for growth and promising future. 

    Ladies of Elegance

    Established in 2021, the Ladies of Elegance Club was established to teach young ladies about the importance of self-care, the dangers of bullying, and the importance of confidence and character development. The Ladies of Elegance program is a during-school organization sponsored by third grade teacher Ms. Engram. The program focuses on social skills, character development, and social awareness.

    Morning announcements

    Manatee Elementary's morning announcements are broadcast live to all of the classrooms and are watched on the large projector screens by the whole student body every morning. The morning announcement crew consists of 4th and 5th-grade students. For more information, please contact Media Specialist Mr. Jones.

    The Safety Patrol at Manatee Elementary is fifth-grade students who are selected based on personal character and leadership skills. They have many responsibilities in the morning and afternoon. These include, but are not limited to, helping students in and out of their cars, getting families safely across the car exit and monitoring the incoming and outgoing student traffic in the hallways. These helpful school community leaders have done wonders in creating a safe environment while developing lifelong skills that will propel them into success in their future endeavors.
