2020-21 PTA INITIATIVES SUPPORTING OUR MISSION

SUPPORT

The PTA strives to support parents, faculty and staff by facilitating communication and fostering community through a variety of initiatives.

COMMUNITY ENRICHMENT NIGHT: We plan to invite relevant guest speakers throughout the school year to share on topics that appeal to parents and the greater Nova community. 

FACULTY AND STAFF APPRECIATION: We organize events and initiatives to encourage and thank our faculty and staff for their hard work and dedication.

FAMILY AMBASSADOR PROGRAM: This volunteer program is designed to match an established NOVA family with a prospective or new family to journey beside them through their transition into the Nova community, and the greater Skopje community as desired. Families can connect socially and share information about school and community life at NOVA and beyond. Follow one of these links to volunteer as an ambassador or sign-up as a new family to be matched with an ambassador.

CHARITY

As a PTA we strive to raise funds through projects that benefit our community and allow us to give back to the greater Skopje community. The funds are used to organize PTA projects, student activities and educational programs not funded by the school budget.

FAMILY BAZAAR: This annual event is a family favorite. It is a great opportunity to enjoy international foods and fun on the Nova campus to raise money for a designated charity. Last year, the event was held virtually, and our Nova community was able to donate to Idnina Special Needs school enough funds to renovate 4 classrooms.

NOVA COMMUNITY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM: The PTA is partnering with Nova Alumni to raise funds to offer scholarships to gifted and talented students who would like to attend Nova High School but are unable due to financial limitations. In March 2020, we were just days away from our first Nova Gala Night when we needed to postpone indefinitely due to COVID-19. We will keep you informed as to when we will be able to organize the event.

SOCIAL

Coming together as a community for fun activities and events enriches the experience at Nova for everyone. In the past we’ve partnered with our school to organize:

  • Back to School Family Mixer

  • EMS Halloween Parties

  • Hot Chocolate Break

  • Valentine’s cookie sales

  • Spring Backyard Party with Egg Hunts

  • Family Bazaars and more 

As we’re allowed with the health situation, we hope to organize more activities and events that will continue the positive atmosphere of the school in a safe way.
