What does the PTF do?
According the PTF bylaws, the objectives of the NHCS PTF are as follows:
- To arrange activities and special events to supplement the academic program and enhance the school’s sense of community.
- To serve as a liaison that encourages and facilitates communication between families, the school’s administration, staff, and local supporting individuals and organizations.
- To be a vehicle for fundraising to help meet expenditures not covered by the school
What is the PTF working on?
The PTF activities can be organized into a few general categories:
- Communication: Creating opportunities for greater communication between New Hope and families of New Hope.
- Community Outreach Programs: Events to help our community enjoy the benefits of New Hope.
- Fundraiser Events: Events to help raise the funds necessary for New Hope’s operating budget, scholarships, and campus improvements.
- Rebate Earning Programs: Programs that allow families to make simple adjustments to “everyday purchases” and have New Hope receive financial benefits.
