We Love Our Volunteers!

The PFA’s Executive Board would like to thank the following Committee Chairs for donating their time and energy over the past two months to host events that help enrich the lives of our students, faculty and staff:

  • NCHS Alumni Roundtable (above right): Thank you to the Guidance Department and Chairs Bonny Plosker and Kim Quinn for hosting returning members of the NCHS class of 2022 who shared their thoughts about college admissions and tips on having a great first semester with the Class of 2023.
  • Special Recognition: Thank you to Chair Allison Rees for providing a delicious holiday breakfast spread to the entire faculty and staff. It was the perfect way to thank them for all that they do!
  • Midterm Exam Snacks: Thank you to Chairs Diane Fannon and Megan Stanley for supplying healthy and festive snacks to help students keep up their energy during exam days.
  • Teacher Appreciation Luncheon:  Thank you to Chairs Anita Bausman and Marnie Zaffino (above left) for hosting a delicious staff luncheon to close out the first semester in style. This is one more way NCHS parents are able to show teachers how much we appreciate the difference they make each and every day in the lives of their students.
