2018-19 Nominations

New Holland Elementary PTO

Nominations & Elections for 2018-2019

  •  I want New Holland Elementary to be one of the best schools in PA.
  •  I want my child to have a great school year – to learn and to have fun!
  •  I want to help decide how PTO fundraising moneys are spent.
  •  I want all the students at New Holland Elementary be successful.

 

If the above statements are true, then “help us help the school”. Parent involvement is critical for a successful school, so volunteer as a PTO officer or a committee chair for 2018-2019.  There are jobs that take no more than a couple hours a month, some that are seasonal, and a few that require a routine commitment.  Dedicated teachers, staff, and PARENTS help make New Holland Elementary a great school!  Join us – it’s rewarding, it’s important, it’s even fun!

Nominate yourself or someone else.  All positions can be shared. (See back of form for position descriptions.) If you have any questions, please contact the current officers at info@nhespto.org.

Elections will be held at the PTO General Meeting on Tuesday, May 8th at 7:00 PM in the school cafeteria.   All nominations should be returned by May 3rd.
