Through the support of our families, teachers, administrators, and community members, we are able to offer a variety of programs and activities to build a strong NES community and provide a fun and rewarding environment for our kids! If you're not a PTA member yet, be sure to JOIN TODAY

Fitness Fridays are sponsored by the PTA and are a great way for students to get active as a group during recess. We need LOTS of volunteers to help oversee the event, hand out prizes, and cheer on the students. There are multiple signup times available (11am-12noon AND 12noon-1:30pm) and you can sign up for either one or both of the time slots.

We need a Nomination Committee of 3 or more people to help us find candidates for next year’s PTA Exec Board and Board of Directors. One individual would be designated as the Nomination Committee Chair, which would bring the candidates' names to the floor during our May meeting for a formal vote by the general membership. As a Nomination Committee member, you would help identify candidates for open positions, reach out to the individual to gauge interest, and monitor the “Nominations” email account. We want to reach our broad community and be inclusive so we have a diverse team of leaders that accurately represents our Northfield community - the more new faces we can bring to the table, the better. Please reach out to Melinda Collins at vp1@northfieldpta.org if interested.

Start with Hello is back at Northfield! Every month, we will encourage students to sit with new friends or students they don’t know very well during lunch. We will provide a series of conversation starter questions to help ignite fun and invigorating communication between students. Volunteers are needed for each lunch period to help direct and guide students in these conversations. Sign up to volunteer for one or more lunch shifts to encourage students to Start with Hello! Please note, we ask all volunteers to wear green.

In an effort to celebrate Black History Month (February) and Women's History Month (March), NES would like to build its own display of artifacts created by Black and/or Female inventors to be used year over year. Please see the list of items we are looking for and feel free to suggest/donate any other items that you believe would be a good fit. Questions can be directed to Sheryl Gostomski at NES. Thank you in advance!
