Join the NCC PTA for the 2021-2022 School Year!
The NCC PTA is here to support ALL students and families. We are a partnership between parents and the school to enhance educational excellence and strengthen the community. Join the PTA and get involved in making NCC a great place to learn and play.
The mission of the NCC PTA is to achieve educational excellence by encouraging parental involvement, building strong teacher-parent relationships, and enabling academic enrichment programs. We also work to provide academic, fun, and family-oriented activities which promote learning and strengthen our community.
Who we are
The NCC PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to making a difference in the education and quality of life for our children. In order to help our children and our teachers, the NCC PTA sponsors programs in the areas of academic improvement, administration, educational enrichment, school events, staff appreciation and student affairs. We would not be able to accomplish our mission without financial and volunteer support from our families and local businesses.
Ways YOU can help make NCC even better:
- Join NCC PTA as a teacher ($5), an individual ($15), or family ($30).
- Attend PTA meetings and events (see calendar).
- Volunteer on a committee.
- Help out with at least 1 event.
- Sign up for grocery and Amazon rewards or bring in your BoxTops.
- Donate to the Feed The Bulldog Campaign!
10 Reasons to Get Involved at NCC
1 Volunteering makes a big difference. Research consistently shows that kids whose parents are involved in their schools do better.
2 It’s fun! Even simple events like bingo night or math game night are a great way to spend time with your family and support your school.
3 It feels great to participate! Your child spends a lot of time at school, and it’s great to share some of her school-related experiences with her.
4 You’ll get to know other parents. It’s powerful to create a circle of adult friends around a school, and help foster connections between families in your community.
5 Volunteering offers tangible ways to be part of things. Joining a parent group will provide concrete ways to get involved, whether at events, in the classroom, or on a committee.
6 It’s a manageable commitment. Spend an hour at a bingo night or the Big Draw, and your efforts will be appreciated. And remember, it’s always OK to say no when you’re busy.
7 You can tailor volunteering to play to your strengths. There are many ways to contribute, some of which are sure to complement your strengths, interests, or professional skills.
8 Your help is always needed. Whether it’s helping run the next big event or providing support in the classroom, there are always ways to pitch in.
9 Volunteering provides another way to get to know school and support staff to better understand their needs and ideas
10 Have a great idea? Volunteering gives you opportunities to get your ideas out there.
