Committees Information

  • Health & Safety: Health and Safety covers a host of activities, such as acting as the PTA liaison with the Community Closet, health events – from nutritional to physical, and matters relating to school and student safety. 
  • Hospitality: Hospitality assists with several NWSC events throughout the school year, such as General Membership Meetings, Reflections Showcase, and the Spring Fling, by organizing refreshments.
  • Principal Representative: The PTA Principal Representative brings a unique perspective as to what is going on within the District, at the school-level.
  • Publicity:  Publicity helps promote NWSC PTA events.
  • Reflections: Reflections is the National PTA arts program that allows students to showcase their creativity in six different arts categories: Literature, Musical Composition, Dance Choreography, Photography, Visual Arts, and Film/Video Production. The 2019-2020 theme has been announced … “Look Within“, and all projects should center around that theme.
  • SPARK (Special Education Parents Accessing Resources and Knowledge):
    SPARK meetings are designed to give parents information to help them in their current and future steps of the journey of parenting children with unique needs. At SPARK we realize the importance of providing:
    • Relevant programs and resources related to special education
    • Opportunities to network, receive support and help
    • Connections for parents with outside sources

    The above are primarily accomplished at the district level through evening programs with outside speakers. We have SPARK representatives at each school who are a local contact and resource to the individual schools.We also have an online support group.
