"It Takes Everyone to Be A Great School"
Volunteering is not required as a member, but it is certainly much needed and appreciated. Students are welcome to offer their volunteer services for most functions.
A very important part of the CNHS PTSO is the formation and operation of committees. Below is a brief overview of the roles and responsibilities of the current committees. If interested in participating as a member or Chairperson, you can either update your Family Information form, or email Karen Ann Halmi, email@example.com.
Community Service: Research, help organize or volunteer at community service activities that provide students an opportunity to get involved with, to enhance their learning experience.
Fundraising: Explore, coordinate or volunteer at fundraising programs or events to support CNHS PTSO and their programs.
Hospitality: Help serve refreshment/cleanup or provide baked/purchased goodies, and sometimes cases of water to various events throughout the year. You do not have to volunteer at all events.
Mini-Grants: Mini-grants are awarded to teachers for the purpose of the academic advancement of the students. Join the process of reviewing teacher mini-grant applications.
Scholarship: The PTSO awards scholarships to students whose families are members of the PTSO. Join the process of reviewing, evaluating and recommending applicants for the PTSO Scholarships. (parents and guardians of Freshman, Sophomores and Juniors, only)
School Store: The School store is operated by the PTSO on select days each week and various school events such as Parent Conferences and Freshman Orientation. Volunteer to work the stored sell apparel during lunch, before school or at school event. You do not need to volunteer for all sale days. Even one day make a difference! Minimal training is required and typically, two volunteers are present.
Senior Week: Assist with planning program leading up to and during Senior Week, including the Senior Breakfast. Any parent can volunteer. It's a nice opportunity for Senior parents, but it would be great to have Junior parents to help out, so they can take it over next year.
Student Representative: Students can represent their grade, class, club or activity at PTSO meeting. Attendance is encouraged, but not required at all meetings. You can attend with your parent, by yourself or other students.
