What are NHE/OV PTA Dinner Nights?
Throughout the year our PTA finds local restaurants willing to host our “NHE/OV Dinner Nights” on a designated day and time. The restaurants agrees to provide a portion of their proceeds to the NHE/OV PTA for any customers who make a purchase during the designated time. Restaurants that have taken part include El Golfo, Chuckie Cheese and El Gavilan. This is a great way to raise money, support local restaurants, and meet other NHE/OV families! If you know any local restaurants that might be interested please let us know!
I joined last school year, am I still a member?
No. Dues are renewed annually and expire each July 1.
What if I just joined in the Spring during the school year, would I still have to renew again in the Fall when school back in session?
Yes. Membership forms filled out after July 1st, are automatically considered for the next school year. Therefore, you will need to renew again that Fall.
What does the PTA do?
The PTA provides funds and manpower to help make our schools the best that they can be. The funds underwrite assemblies, events, teacher support, etc. PTA volunteers plan and staff a wider range of events as listed on the school calendars.
