Nominations & Election

Nominations & Elections for 2021/2022

  •  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 2021/2022.  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 below for position descriptions.) If you have any questions, please contact the current officers at info@nhespto.org.

All nominations should be returned by March 23rd.
