MISSION AND GOALS

The Northrop Parent Teacher Association (PTA) believes when a parent is involved in their child's school, ALL children benefit. All parents and staff are encouraged to get involved in the PTA.

The PTA is dedicated to help build a strong school community and improve the quality of education at Northrop.  This is done through sponsoring social and cultural activities and by raising funds for school activities, classroom and media supplies, and recognition for our fabulous teachers and staff.

Please contact us if you can help at any of the events below or would like more information on how you can help. It's even more fun when you sign up with friends to join you! 

**ATTENTION: WE NEED YOU!

  • Our current board members are on their last year of their 2-year term.  We will need new board members for the 2020-2021 through 2021-2022 school year (2-year term).  This is a great opportunity to be part of the Northrop community, engage in your child's education, and continue the strength of doing wonderful things for Northrop and the staff.  For more information, please refer to the descriptions and current board members here.  Please reach out if you have any questions or would like to know more about any of the officer positions. Elections will be postponed to fall 2020.
  • In addition, we need someone to conduct a financial review. This is a requirement, under the MN PTA Universal Bylaws.  Are you interested or know someone who would love to help us? Perhaps a retired grandparent that was a CPA or accounting skills. Please contact us if interested. 

GIFT CARD DRIVE

  • A BIG thank you to those of you who were able to support Northrop families in need with gift cards or generous donations made by porch drop off, mail, and Venmo.  Together we were able to hand off $1,745 worth of Cub and Target gift cards to Principal Woods this month. Thank you SO much for coming together as a community to make this happen!  Principal Woods has a record of everyone's donations and purchases made, including receipts, should you have any questions.

YEARBOOKS

  • There is a delay in the yearbook and we are doing our best. PTA planned on giving every student their own this year. We appreciate your understanding during this global crisis. If you're willing to volunteer and help in any way, please let us know by sending us an email
