[Commitment:   1 email every 2-4 weeks throughout the year, optional visit to classroom ]
Ms. McLallen and Mr. Vanderwoude would each appreciate a FOM Parent Liaison – a consistent contact person, who will check in every 2 - 4 weeks to see what assistance FOM can provide. Requests can be forwarded to appropriate people, or delegated to parents willing to lend a hand.

[Commitment:   2 months, late Sept – early Dec]
Get involved in the highlight fundraiser event of the FOM year! Winterfest is an annual themed performance which brings NHS music students and local talent together to celebrate the holiday season. The stage curtain will open to the selected music theme  – an evening of instrumental, vocal and dance performances. We need a sell-out crowd! This event is our biggest fundraiser, and we are seeking many FOM participants – moms, dads and students. Lend a hand in a small way, or jump in with both feet, to bring this star-studded night to NHS this December.  With your help, this event is certain to be a huge hit!!!  Just pick one of the opportunities below and send us e-mail:
