Popsicles in the Park
Occurs: End of August-----
Need: Lead/co-lead and volunteers------
Popsicles in the park is a chance for the families of NHES to get together at the beginning of the school year and meet each other. Each student is provided a popsicle as we gather at the New Holland park. We need someone(s) to plan the event and several volunteers to run the event. Set up takes less than an hour before the event and clean up takes even less.
Race for Education
Occurs: October-------Need: Co-lead and volunteers------This is a major event for the school. The PTO gets the majority of its funding from Race for Education. We already have a lead but would like a co-leader to start to learn the nesseccary information. We also need plenty of volunteers to help with handing out water and directing children on the course the day of the event.
Teacher Appreciation Dinner
Occurs: November-----Need: volunteers-----Our teachers work hard for our students! We show our appreciation for all that they do twice a year by providing a special meal. During 1st quarter conferences we plan a dinner around a specific theme (taco bar, Potato bar, pasta and salad bar, etc.). The help needed for this event is simply volunteering to bring a food item!
Holiday Gift Shop
Occurs: December-----Need: Lead/co-lead and volunteers-----This is another major event but we have an awesome company that we work with who provides us tablets to quickly check out students and track our sales. There is no counting of inventory!! We need someone(s) to plan the activities that occur in the gym while students are waiting, someone(s) to run the gift shop efficiently, and lots of volunteers to help both the gift shop and gym activities run smoothly.
Occurs: January-----Need: Volunteers-----Most of the work for this event is done by the teachers. The PTO provides a few volunteers to set up, help with check-in, and pack up at the end.

Teacher Appreciation Breakfast
Occurs: May-----Need: Lead/co-lead and volunteers-----Just like the dinner at the beginning of the year this event is the second time we honor our teachers with food. This time its breakfast!!
