Dear NCE Family,
Welcome back! Your NCE PTA has been hard at work planning for the 2012-2013
school year. We need YOU, the parents, to make this happen or we cannot offer the
programs that serve to enhance your child’s experience at NCE. It is the extras
provided by the PTA that make your child’s educational experience truly exceptional.
What did NCE PTA provide for your child and their teachers in 2011-12?
ü $150 to each teacher (including the Librarian) for educational support items
ü Two classroom parties
ü Junior Achievement for each class
ü SPICE - Student Parent Interactive Curriculum Enrichment is a hands on
educational lesson led by parents to support what students are learning in class.
Parents are in the classroom teaching their kids and it’s fun!
ü Field Trips such as Dewberry Farms, George Ranch, Houston Zoo, Museum of
Natural Science and more
ü Carnival and Auction raised $20,000 for school programs and resources
ü Library volunteer support and new books
ü Purchased 20+ computers for your child’s classroom
ü New playground equipment
ü Four Cultural Arts programs brought to our school including shows from Main
ü A 30th Anniversary Celebration and new marquee
ü PTA Volunteers donated 7,800 hours of their time!!
This is not an extensive list by any means but hopefully it shows you how important your
involvement in the PTA is. Your support of the PTA through membership and
volunteering are critical for the PTA to continue to offer these things that
serve to enhance your child’s experience at NCE.
JOIN the PTA by completing the PTA Membership Form found in this packet. Our
goal is for every student in the school to be represented by a PTA member. For only $8,
PTA Members have access to discounts on insurance, mobile phones, books and more.
Also, you will receive a school directory which provides important student and staff
A Volunteer Meet and Greet is scheduled for Wednesday, September 12,
