Welcome Letter

Hello Northwest Families!

FRIENDS OF NORTHWEST PTO would like to formally invite you to our first 2020 Virtual Zoom Meeting Thursday, September 17th at 7:00 pm The PTO's Mission is to enhance the educational experience for all students at NWSA by fostering relationships among the school, parents and teachers. This year's $20,000 budget may seem small compared to other schools', but every penny is needed to support important enrichment programs such as:

  • Monthly Staff Appreciation Events like catered luncheons, raffles and seasonal novelty gifts for all staff to show our appreciation.

  • $100 Cash Vouchers to every teacher for classroom supplies they would otherwise purchase from their own pockets.

  • Campus Gardens & Beautification

  • Small Grants to support NWSA clubs and teacher professional development opportunities.

This year our Teacher Events are going to have a completely different protocol because of the pandemic but that's not going to deter the PTO from showing how much we appreciate our STAFF at NWSA! ONLY YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN! Here are the ways you can help.

  1. Become a PTO Member: Family memberships are only $25 and NWSA Staff get a membership discount.

  2. PayPal donations: any and all are appreciated.

  3. Buy Spirit Wear: we will ship it to your door.

  4. Link your Harris Teeter VIC Card: our school will receive quarterly money donations. This must be re-done every school year.

  5. Amazon Smile: by choosing NWSA as your Amazon Smile charity we will qualify for free money. Please remember to always use the Amazon Smile site!

  6. Box Tops: they no longer need to be clipped and dropped off at school. Box Tops now has a user friendly app.

ALL OF THESE LINKS CAN BE FOUND ON OUR FRIENDS OF NORTHWEST PTO WEBSITE: https://www.friendsofnorthwest.com/ Last but not least - Jump on to our Zoom meeting on September 17th at 7:00 pm to meet our new Board Members and see what exciting things we have planned this year!!
