NHE PTA raises money each year to support educational opportunities for every child at our school, including enrichment programs, field trips, the Think Tank for Science/Technology/and Math (STEM) Enrichment, creation of our new school garden & outdoor learning environment, and much more.
Please support your student by participating in the fundraisers listed below.
Our primary fundraiser for Fall is the "Feed Freddie Falcon" Direct Donation campaign (November). "Feed Freddie" replaces a product-sale fundraiser by allowing families and friends of NHE to directly donate by cash, check, or credit card, with 100% of the money going to support our school. Information about "Feed Freddie" will be sent home in Tuesday folders in October.
Our annual Spring Gala and Auction is a fun, grown-ups only event where NHE parents, neighbors, businesses, grandparents, staff, and more come together to celebrate and support our school. Our 2016 Auction was held at Prestonwood Country Club and raised more than $58,000 for NHE! Information about table sponsorships and event tickets will be sent out in eNews and Tuesday folders in late Fall. If you would like to donate an item for our auction or have a connection with a local business, restaurant, company, sports team, etc that might be willing to donate, please email the 2017 Auction Committee at email@example.com.
Spirit Nights at Local Restaurants
Several times a year NHE will partner with a local restaurant for a "spirit night" where a portion of that evening's proceeds are donated to the school. Information on 2016-2017 Spirit Nights will be sent out in eNews and Tuesday folders.
Boxtops for Education
Collect "box tops" on common grocery items and return them to your child's teacher in the Spring and Fall to earn big $$$ for NHE! We'll announce deadlines to turn them in for Fall and Spring via Tuesday folders as the year goes on. Or you can turn yours in to your child's teacher any time! We ask that you count the boxtops before you turn them in and label your baggie of boxtops with the following info: # of Boxtops you are submitting, your child's teacher name, your child's grade.
