Welcome to Novato High School PTSA!

The top priority for parents is their children’s well-being. Research has proven that students do better when their parents are involved both at home and at school. One simple way for you to help your child succeed is to join PTSA!

PTSA helps parents, students, school staff and the community work together on programs and activities that benefit children.

Last school year, the Novato High PTSA was instrumental in providing the following:

• Outdoor Community Building & Learning Space – New Picnic Tables and Shade!
• New Library Furniture
• Athletic Trainer Cart
• Cadet Uniform Gear for ROTC Program
• Support to Volunteers for Senior Project Presentations
• AVID Graduation Sashes
• Graduation Programs Printing Expense
• Graduation Sound System for Field

• Large Samsung TVs and DocCams for Classrooms
• Finals Fuel Snacks
• Tutoring and Homework Help Center Funding – open and free to all students three days each week

With your involvement and enthusiasm, we can achieve even more this year!
