Be a Superstar Parent Volunteer!

Did you know children have a better experience when parents are actively involved? That's why New Hope Families are asked to give a minimum of 20 service hours per school year.

This can include volunteering in school programs or even chaperoning a field trip. 

To make life easy, we've created a simple way to keep track of your time.

Teamwork makes the dream work!! New Hope Academy is fortunate to have a wonderful group of parents dedicated to enriching the school experience for our students.


Learning opportunities are improved when parents, school staff, students, and the community work together. The PTO brings all these groups together to share thoughts and ideas about programs and activities that benefit our children.


All parents, teachers, and administrators are automatically members of the New Hope Academy PTO. Projects are supported by the yearly PTO fee paid by all families, by generous volunteer efforts, and by fundraising events held throughout the school year. We need your input, ideas, time, and talents to make this program work and truly be beneficial to all involved.


The rewards of being an active member of the PTO include:


  • Regular education and updates on school activities and policies

  • More access to teachers and administrators

  • Opportunities to build relationships with parents of other NHA students

  • A chance to discuss ideas, suggestions, or concerns in an open forum

  • Appreciation from teachers for all your help

  • The ability to vote on PTO initiatives and help decide how funds are spent


We welcome and appreciate your support!
