 Manual MST Catalyst needs help!

Do you have a student entering the MST program at Manual?  We need your help!

The MST Catalyst organization provides direct support to students and teachers in the MST program.  We are a parent run organization that meets once monthly with staff and administration in the MST program to insure our students have the resources and support needed to succeed.  We do not focus on fundraising.  We need board members for the upcoming school year.  What a great way to get to know the program and have an impact on your student’s academic experience!
