From our new PFC President...
Someone once said, “Every teenager should get a high school education, even if they already know everything.”
We know they have a lot to learn! Northgate High is a great place to do it. We want to maintain the momentum from the past, while creating even more for the future, but I want to focus on THIS school year.
- What can your student learn - this year?
- What activities can we provide for your student - this year?
- What can we, as a community, offer your students - this year?
Our school district provides what it can – a fundamental education. Our Northgate Education Fund provides extra benefits by paying the salaries for College and Career Counselors, an on-site Computer Technician, and Teachers for many extra classes, and on-site Student Support Counselors. They also fund Naviance and other student/teacher support, staff development, and more. 2014-2015 Budget
If we don’t raise the funds, we can’t offer the classes and activities for your student.
This year, the Northgate Education Fund is recommending a $350 donation, or whatever you can give. Don’t forget Corporate Matching Funds, which are an easy way to double your contribution. There are also Gift Cards for purchase or ShopWithScrip, signing up for eSCRIP - making Northgate your donation school at Safeway and other stores, Say “Northgate” when you buy something at Sports Basement, or buying advertising for your company in the Northgate Directory. It’s easy - Everything helps!
You may be surprised how many volunteers it takes to run our school! Volunteers are an integral part of our school. Thousands of combined hours are spent making sure your student has every opportunity to advance him/herself, or run a highly desired program. If positions are not filled, programs will not be available. Please consider volunteering!
Please attend the PFC meetings. They are scheduled for every 3rd Thursday, alternating mornings and evenings so everyone can come. We get updates on important events and decide where the money we raise will be spent. If you are not there, we don’t know what programs and events are important to you.
Let’s focus on your child’s education, THIS year. We need to raise money to continue the programs and classes we have now, for your student to have options for learning and enjoyment. Remember, the money raised this year is spent this year.
Give, volunteer, learn!
I am looking forward to a challenging and exciting school year, where your student has the opportunity to excel and move closer their goals!
