Carline Day Award – Seeking Nominations

Carline Day Award – Seeking Nominations

Know of someone who volunteers unselfishly and continually works for the betterment of NPE? Someone who is tireless and believes that true happiness comes from helping others? Why not nominate him/her for the Carline Day Outstanding Volunteer Award?
Every May, someone at NPE receives this award. The award was originally started in 1997 by friends of the late Carline Day and is given to someone whose qualities and characteristics most resemble hers. Carline was an active community volunteer spending endless hours at NPE as Room Parent, Skating Party Chairman, and Ways and Means Chairman. She was unselfish, determined, generous, creative, and simply a loving person.

In 2006, Dr. Michael Day established an endowment fund in her honor which accompanies this award. The fund provides income to NPE and the award winner is asked to specify uses of the funds that will directly benefit NPE programs, activities, and/or acquisitions.

Anyone can be nominated. Once nominations are received, a committee consisting of Mrs. Eastes, two teachers, two parents, and the PTO Vice President will select a winner. The winner will be announced during the May Awards Program.

Nominations can be submitted in 3 easy ways:
1 Filling out the form online at:

2 Printing out the attached form, filling it out and returning to Mrs. Eastes: Carline Day VOLUNTEER AWARD 2015

3 Emailing your nominations to Mrs. Eastes at

Be sure to include several details as to why you feel this person deserves to be the next Carline Day Outstanding Volunteer Award recipient. Thank you.

Seeking NPE PTO Committee Volunteers for School Year 2015-2016

Seeking NPE PTO Committee Volunteers for School Year 2015-2016

The NPE PTO is in need of volunteers to support our wonderful school events for the 2015-2016 school year-we have several volunteer opportunities available.

Several chair positions have been filled, however there is always room for more volunteers on those committees as well as several positions that are still needing to be filled.

Also consider co-chairing with a friend!  Being a part of the PTO is a great way to meet new parents, get to know more about the school setting and help make our school the best ever!

The committees are instrumental in helping raise money to supplement items that are not included in the schools budget.  For example, this year the NPE PTO was able to provide these items:

Purchase additional playground equipment for the kindergarten playground

Pay for one field trip per child and parent chaperones per grade level

Fund additional books to our library

Pay for annual Children’s Museum membership allowing multiple field trips per grade level

Pay for end of year Accelerated Reading celebration

Provide funds to help teachers supply their room needs

This is just a small look at what the PTO provides for our students, parents, and teachers!

Please contact Lori Burks at if you would be interested in finding out more information about any volunteer opportunities.  Without volunteers for board positions, chair positions, and committees, the PTO cannot do all the things it needs to do for our school!

Thank You!
