What is the PTF?
The PTF (Parent-Teacher Fellowship) is a collection of New Hope families and staff working together to continue to improve New Hope Christian School and to glorify Jesus in and through the lives of our students.
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 and financial benefit.
