Greetings Fellow Titans –
One thing that makes Northview what it is is parent involvement. Local School Council (LSC), PTSA, Boosters, or the Fine Arts Association—they all work to support our mission; “To instill excellence in academics, arts, and athletics."
These parent organizations are only as successful as their members and I ask you now to support them all!
LSC – The purpose of this committee is to provide support and assistance for teachers and administrators, make stakeholders a part of the school-based decision-making process, share ideas for school improvement, create understanding and respect for each other’s concerns, and provide advice and recommendations to the Fulton County Board of Education and the principal.
We are currently in need of nominations to run for the open positions of parent or business representation on the Local School Council. Forms were sent out in the summer mailing, but are also available in the front office or from me by request. Meetings are held from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. one Monday a month at the school.
PTSA – The national organization PTA, is well-known for its lobbying efforts for educational issues. At Northview, our PTSA provides support and assistance through parent volunteers, teacher recognition and appreciation, supplemental instructional assistance, fulfilling teacher grant requests, and a list too long to mention! Membership is available at different levels, but includes a school directory, spirit wear, and other valuable items. Please join and help PTSA support our teachers! Registration tables will be set up at Curriculum Night on September 16, 2010.
Booster Organizations – support our various athletic programs. Membership is available at different levels and ensures the continuation of our first rate athletic activities. Please look for the appropriate links at www.northviewhigh.com under Support Organizations.
Fine Arts Association - The Northview High School Fine Arts Association is a group of parent volunteers dedicated to enhancing the fine arts programs at Northview. Membership is available at different levels and volunteers provide the manpower in our concession stands during the fall season. Additional information is available at http://northviewhigh.com/community/fine_arts_assoc.php.
Just as I encourage all students to get involved during their years at Northview, I also encourage you to do the same. We welcome parent input and participation at a multitude of levels—there really is something for everyone!
If I can provide any further information, please feel free to contact me. I hope to see everyone at the football game this Friday—it is sure to be an unforgettable evening!
Ever Upward and Onward!
Northview High School
