Home / Getting to know us / The Jungle Visits Manatee Charter School


April’s Parent University Night at Manatee Charter was a HOOT! Parents, students, and staff were amused and enthralled as Sarasota Jungle Gardens brought hands-on learning to the Manta-Ray cafe.

The host educated our guests on ecology, science, and animal care taking. Families gathered together to interact with unique guests such as an owl, a snake, a prairie dog, and an alligator.

Our principal, Ms. Brett showcased her bravery participating in the fun and holding multiple exotic animals. It was truly a ROAR and a night to remember for all involved.
