The Needham High School Parent Teacher Council (PTC)

Welcome to all parents and guardians of the students of Needham High!

Mission:   We enhance and enrich the programs and learning opportunities at Needham High School, provide an open forum for parents and the principal to meet and communicate, help to make sure that all students have the same high school experience regardless of financial need, and facilitate appreciation events for NHS teachers and staff. 

Newsletter: We issue a newsletter via email as needed (typically twice a month). Please click the button on the left sidebar to sign up and stay informed about PTC activities and ways to be involved in your students’ school. 

Volunteering: There are several ways you can be involved with the PTC.  Join one of our committees or keep an eye on the newsletter for opportunities to volunteer at the Craft Fair & Auction and various staff appreciation and student events. 

Fundraising: In order to accomplish our mission, the PTC raises funds through dues, donations, the Annual Craft Fair & Auction, and periodic Spirit Wear Sales. Monies donated support Enrichment Awards granted to staff and students; Discretionary Funds for the principal, assistant principals, Guidance Department, and Athletic Department; Scholarships for graduates and student travelers; quality of life improvement for our children; books for the Media center; several social events for students, and more.

Dues: Dues and donations can be made by check using this form. We suggest $50 per family each year, and we are very grateful for any donations above that amount. You may also choose to pay via PayPal by clicking the button below.
