The NHS PTO cordially welcomes each and every parent to attend any monthly meeting that is convenient for you! We meet usually meet on Thursdays, once monthly, in the Community Room located in the lobby of the High School. Any one you see will show you the room if you are unfamiliar with it. We really enjoy having parents at the meeting who want to know what's going on in the high school and hear Mr. Fish's report on high school activites each month. We love and encourage new ideas and new volunteers! We run on family contributions and this year we have made it even easier for families to give any amount of dues they can. We hope to increrase our family involvement to 100%, as opposed to last year which saw only 36% of families doing their part. 100% of PTO monies go toward supporting your child, and EVERY child, every day, every year. So, please consider supporting us so we can help your child.
What do we do anyway? The PTO provides support for programs and educational and extracurricular materials that benefit ALL students at NHS. We finance guest speakers for student/parent programs, finance 100% of grants to teachers for enhancing their classrooms and curriculum, and assist in financing student activities throughout the year. All parents and guardians of Norwell High School students are members of the PTO.
BUT we can't do it without your help. Your yearly PTO membership dues of $25 covers the cost of student agendas and countless non-budgeted programs and grants. This year we realize that $25 may not be realistic for your family, so we have added an option to pay any amout of dues that works for your family. Please pay your dues on the payment page: http://nhspto.org.
Everyone is warmly invited to attend monthly meetings that provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas between parents, NHS administration, and teachers, AND become directly involved in raising and allocating support toward the needs of the school. If you are unable to attend meetings, you can still be kept in the loop by reading the meeting minutes.
