This year's PTO President is Katie Ball. Katie has three children. Two little Manhattan Tigers (7 & 5 yo ),and a Tiger in training (2 yo). She is a therapist and stress coach, with a thriving private practice in downtown Belgrade. Her goal as the PTO president is to support our hard-working teachers and coordinate fun, engaging fundraising events for the year. Katie's family is a newer addition to the community, moving from Santa Cruz, California four years ago. She is also a Montana Native, born and raised in Havre, Montana. Her husband is a Firefighter/Paramedic for Central Valley Fire District in Belgrade. "I would love to grow the parent involvement on PTO. I understand what it's like to be new to an area and knowing the teachers and families my children are around every day is very important to me as a mom. I've experienced an amazing community here at Manhattan Schools so far, and I'm very excited to continue to get to know the teachers, parents, and students."
