Our goal is for every child to be represented by a dues-paying member of the PTO. Memberships are only $7 each, and we welcome parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and neighbors to join!
On behalf of the PTO, we would like to welcome everyone back to school. You ask, “what is PTO?” PTO stands for Parent-Teacher Organization, consisting of parents and teachers working together to support and enrich all students at NKES. The PTO supports school staff, helps promote student self-esteem, and assists in efforts to solve school needs through two important ways.
1. WE RAISE MONEY! By holding fundraisers such as the Fun Run, Bingo for Books, Scholastic Book Fairs, etc., we are able to earn money to enhance the educational experience for all students at NKES. The PTO funds new educational materials and technology for the classrooms, educational assemblies, school beautification efforts, staff appreciation, and a multitude of other items that are needed around the school.
2. WE SHOW UP! The Holiday Shop, Valentine Grams, & Fall Festival, are all activities planned and staffed by PTO volunteers. These are memorable events for NKES students, and we need volunteers to help make them happen.
