Mabel’s Labels

Are you tired of all that new gear ending up in the lost and found?
We are here to help solve that problem! Manor Woods PTA has partnered with Mabel's Labels, the best-known brand of durable labels for families - 20% goes back to the PTA. 
Follow this link and click "Support a Fundraiser" in the top right corner and search Manor Woods Elementary School PTA. 
The labels are dishwasher (so label those lunch containers) and laundry safe (hoodies and coats!)

Harris Teeter

Did you know that our school can earn rewards every time you shop at Harris Teeter?! Link your VIC card to MWES today by asking the cashier to link to your school at checkout using your school’s 4 digit code (1993) or link your VIC card on Harris Teeter's app or website (you will need to be logged into your personal Harris Teeter account). Once you've done that, SHOP for HT brand products, or pick up your prescription through our pharmacy to earn money for your school! Last year, 25 participants earned our school over $450. Let's see if we can double that this year!
