Newport Heights Elementary PTA

 

Hello Dolphin Families! Welcome to another year at Newport Heights Elementary! Whether you are new, or are a returning family, we are so very glad that you are here!

Thursday was the first day of school for grades 1-5, and I don't know about you, but we are already worn out. My family has a 3rd and a 5th grader at NHE this year, and one more in 7th up at Tyee Middle School. Phew! I'm ready to vote in some raises for all of our educators!

As we can already see, and as many of us learned last spring, this will be a year that is unprecedented in so many ways. There are numerous challenges ahead for students and parents, for teachers, staff, and admins, but the PTA remains committed to supporting every child as best as we can. While our support and extracurricular activities will look different this year as we continue to adapt to the challenges of Covid-19, I know that our NHE Dolphins will continue to be smart, friendly, and curious. We will also do our best to be patient and flexible, and to find new ways to assist our school community.

We do all this for the community of NHE, because we are the community of NHE. We are parents, and teachers, and staff who share the overarching goal of educating and enriching every child. You can support our work in three major ways:

1. Become a member today! Join the PTA and become a part of the nation's largest child welfare advocacy group. Make your voice heard in your community and stand up for all our children.
You can sign up here: Click to Join!

2. Donate to the PTA! You can do this while you sign up for membership, or just by visiting our website at nhe-pta.org
This year we are asking families to donate $100 per child if possible, but any amount is certainly appreciated.
 
3. Volunteer with the PTA! As I wrote above, we are entirely run by volunteers and it truly does take all of us to do the work. We are still looking to fill several positions on our board including: Vice President, Director of Hospitality, Director of Fundraising, and Director of Communications. If you think you would be a good fit these or just want to contribute your time with the PTA, please send me an email at president@nhe-pta.org

This is my 8th year as a parent at NHE and it is truly an amazing school. By joining and becoming involved with the PTA you will help to make it even better! Let's have a great year together!

Sincerely,

Dan Brennan
President
NHE PTA
