Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
Newport Harbor High School PTA is excited for another fun year! Come join us at one of our monthly meetings throughout the year where you can learn about school events, hear from community speakers, share your voice, connect with our school community, and help make effective change for Newport Harbor students and staff.
Our PTA supports the NHHS community by planning and funding programs and activities that meet the specific needs of our school. We support the educational efforts of our teachers in the classroom and work to increase parent involvement through communication, family events, parent education, and other special projects throughout the year.
PTA welcomes all parents, students and teachers who would like to join. You can join PTA at a cost of $15 per year for adults, and $9.35 per year for students, and a time commitment of your choosing. Attend all meetings and events, or just the ones that fit with your schedule. Any involvement is greatly appreciated, and will help make our school community stronger.
NHHS PTA organizes one major fundraiser during the school year, our Holiday Marketplace. All profits earned through this fundraiser stay at our school and directly fund the programs and services that our PTA supports. These programs and services include: Reflections Art Program, Community Outreach, Parent Education, Staff/Teacher Appreciation, Grad Night, NHHS Senior Scholarships, and other special projects.
