The purpose of the Nellie K. Parker PTA is to provide a forum where parents, teachers, administrators and other concerned adults can come together to discuss ways to promote quality education, strive to expand the arts, encourage community involvement, and work for a healthy environment.
NKP PTA is committed to representing and serving the members of its multi-cultural community and helping parents, teachers and administrators give their very best for all of the children in the school. Together we are a powerful voice for our children. With your help, we can continue to work toward the PTA's goal of a quality education and nuturing environment for every child.
How The NKP PTA Helps NKP and its Students
Throughout the years these are the many ways the NKP PTA supports the Students,
their Families and the Staff at Nellie K. Parker:
· Supply Folders & Planners to Students
· Assist with Choral & Band Productions
· Assist with School-Based Literacy Events
· Assist with the Thanksgiving Day Luncheon
· Present Scholarships to NKP Graduates
· Assist with Classroom Stage Productions
· Informative Newsletters
· Support 4th Grade Activities
· Promote School Spirit through Spirit Wear
· Parker Family Fun Day
· Bring Cultural Arts Experiences to the Stage
· Health Fairs, Dance Classes, Game Nights, Movie Nights
· And there are so many more to list!
The NKP PTA is an integral part of the NKP School. Without the NKP PTA support this list would not exist. Without the support of the parents and staff of NKP School the NKP PTA cannot exist.
Support comes in TWO ways -
Volunteering & Financial

· Become an Officer or Committee Chairperson or Helper
o Officers: President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, Treasurer
o Committees: School Spirit Wear, Book Fairs, Fundraising Programs (Tricky Tray, Gertrude Hawk, etc.), 4th Grade, Scholarship, Parker Family Fun Day, No-Cost Fundraising (Boxtops, Labels for Education, My Coke Rewards, Inkjet Recycling)
