Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!

This year will be unique and challenging, but your PTO is excited to work with you to help our students succeed! Above all, please know that your input and participation in our school community are valued- we need you!  So even if you cannot make it to the PTO meetings, please reach out to us and share your ideas for making our school the best it can be!

"Real change happens when the people who need it lead it." -Teach Us All

WHO WE ARE:  We are you! We are a group of NJES parents, teachers, and administrators who are dedicated to serving our school through a range of activities, such as fundraisers, family nights, school updates, and events like Fall Festival, Book Fair, Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week, and Field Day.

MEETINGS:  The PTO meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 3:45pm.  Until further notice, our meetings will be held via Zoom.  The Zoom login information is posted on our "NJES Parent/Guardian Page (Unofficial)" on Facebook.  Or you can email the PTO president to request the login (Tonya Hamer, tonya.k.hamer@gmail.com).  Our meetings typically last about one hour.

MEMBERS NEEDED:  We need you help! Recently PTO participation has been very low, which makes it extremely difficult to provide so many awesome activities.  Participating in monthly meetings are a great way to support us, but they are not for everyone - and they are not the only way to help.  The work we do between the meetings would benefit from all of your different ideas, skills, community connections, and volunteer time.  If you can volunteer at an event for an hour, that would be wonderful!  If you have a special skill or interest and we can call on you to help out in that area, we would appreciate that help.  Maybe you are an artist and can design spectacular settings for a fall festival.  Maybe you like gardening and what to work on the grounds clean-up one morning.  If you have construction experience, we can talk about some bigger infrastructure projects.  Maybe you'd like to organize a basketball competition on a Friday night.  If you have ideas, please share them and we'll see if we can make them happen.  

So, if you are unable to attend the meetings, but you would still like more information on how to stay involved, please get in touch with us!  You can contact any of the PTO officers or our Parent Involvement Associate, Amy Dinges, amy.dinges@wvesc.org.

We can do more with more minds and helping hands!

Please join us for our next NJES PTO Meeting via Zoom on Thursday, February 11th at 3:45 pm.
