Thank You for Giving!

With your help, we raised over $3500 for our Big Give Campaign for the 2018-2019 school year. Our goal was $4500 so we made it 78% of the way there. 

Thank you for supporting our PTA.  We can’t do it without you.

If you are still interested in giving, you can donate by visiting https://nheovpta.com and clicking on the “DONATE” button on top right of the page or you can download the form below and send it with your child to school.  


The NHE/OV PTA Direct Donation “The Big Give” provides NHEES/OVES families and friends an opportunity to make a monetary donation directly to the PTA. All contributions go directly to supporting PTA programs without having to profit share with an outside organization. This allows us to move away from direct sales fundraising such as selling gift wrap papers and cookie dough products. The PTA funds (in full or in part) a wide range of activities that all NHEES/OVES students enjoy.

Montgomery County does NOT pay all of the bills at NHE Elementary and Oak View Elementary and funding from the PTA bridges the gap.

The truth is that MCPS does not pay for many of the “extras” that enhance our children’s school experience everyday. Things like classroom technology, art assemblies, library books, visiting artists, musical instruments, recess rainy-day games, and classroom supplies. One hundred percent of the funds you contribute will directly benefit your child’s education this year.

Your support in any capacity helps our schools and your child. Every family’s contribution is greatly appreciated, and we ask that you give as generously as you can. Thank you!
