Honor Thy Teacher Campaign

Has an NHS teacher or staff member made a difference in your student’s life this year?

Thank them by contributing to the

2017 HONOR THY TEACHER campaign

HONOR THY TEACHER is a meaningful and practical way to recognize an educator’s outstanding service. Your year-end donation expresses your appreciation of a teacher’s commitment to our students and also helps address the needs of NHS teachers that are unmet by the school budget.

Your gift honors a professional at our school, and will provide tangible support in NHS classrooms next year.

Funds from HONOR THY TEACHER donations make it possible for the PTO to respond each year to teachers’ requests for supplies and teaching tools. Since 2011, this annual fundraising effort has generated more than $18,000, making possible the purchase of science lab supplies, graphing calculators and batteries, books, headphones, cameras, and a new bass drum for the marching band. The generosity of NHS families has also helped fund grants to teachers and staff for field trips, wood shop equipment and supplies, mural art projects, student art exhibits, and college readiness programs.

NHS faculty and staff deeply appreciate these expressions of support from the NHS community.

Here are some of the messages we have received from grateful teachers: “Thanks so much for helping us out with the project in such a generous way.” “We are incredibly appreciative; this will help support our students’ learning.” “The students are so excited; they will really make use of this grant for their projects.” “Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! Couldn’t do it without you!”

Your financial support enhances the quality of our students’ education!
