WHO WE ARE
Terra Nova's Parent Teacher Organization is dedicated to enabling families, teachers, staff and the community to join forces to promote a positive learning environment for all students - including yours. All parents and guardians of Terra Nova students are members, whether or not you are able to make a membership donation, attend meetings, or volunteer your time. The PTO, a non-profit organization, was founded for the following purposes:
To encourage communication among the school, home and community at large.
To provide support to the school in the form of volunteers, financial and resource contributions and parental representation within the Jefferson Union High School District.
To facilitate parental involvement in school-wide decision making and activities.
WHAT WE DO
Mini Grants for Teachers: Teachers submit requests for items that they would like to purchase that will enhance their classroom teaching and the Mini Grant Committee reviews the requests and most often funds these items.
Recognition of TNHS teachers and staff: The PTO provides a Staff Appreciation Week for all the teachers and staff at TNHS in May to appreciate their efforts all year long. Look for opportunities to volunteer or donate items for this event in the spring.
Safe and Sober Celebration for Graduates: The PTO organizes and hosts a Grad Night celebration for the TNHS graduates so they will have a place to celebrate responsibly. Look for opportunities to volunteer for this event in the spring.
