Our Mission

The mission of the Foundation is to enhance the educational environment at Newport Heights Elementary School. We accomplish our mission through these initiatives:

  • Raising funds through parents and the community and working with school’s principal, Somer Harding, to allocate those funds to augment the schools teaching capabilities.
  • Funding additional academic personnel – such as a Shark Tank co-teacher, library aide, instructional assistants and supplemental math and reading teachers.
  • Providing cutting edge technology to the classrooms and in the Shark Tank, where children design, create and engineer, along with large format audio/visual/internet capabilities for all classrooms. 

Monies raised by the Foundation also support extended learning programs, expansion of the art program, and music.

The resources the foundation provides fill a significant gap in educational funding that is not provided by the district. With these additional resources every child at NHES is provided a significantly improved learning opportunity that has produced dramatic and proven results.
