Hello Norwell High School Community!
Last year was certainly different but as a community we found new ways to connect and support our students and staff. The NHSPTO board would like to THANK everyone who attended our Zoom meetings, paid dues or donated, bought a Clipper Pride sign, supported the Egg My Yard fundraiser, or signed up to bring gifts and items in to the school. All your help enabled us to support the students and staff through a tough year.
As a PTO we raised over $13,000 last year so were able to support teacher grants, lunch and treats for Teacher week, spirit week prizes for students, guidance initiatives, Senior events, Graduation, pet visits and pizza dinner for janitors. We spread some joy and cheer with a large balloon arch, signage, music and treats so everyone behind a mask was smiling!
We are happy to announce that we finished the year with enough money to fund a $4,000 portable sound system for the school that can be used in the gym and outside for ceremonies, sporting events and concerts! We look forward to hearing everything more clearly now!
One bonus from COVID is that we hosted our PTO meetings on Zoom and attendance to meetings and support of programs was the highest we have seen in years! So we are keeping the Zoom format with a few in person meetings this year. We hope you all will join the conversations and help where you can.
For planning for the 2021-22 School Year we are excited to have committees ready to go to support Homecoming, Teacher Appreciation, Norwell Cares, Prom, and we are bringing back QUIZ NIGHT!! We hope everyone who wants to help will get involved.
