HNWCS Parents and Teachers Organization

The HNWCS Parents and Teachers Organization (PTO) was founded in 1977. It is composed of all teachers, parents, and legal guardians of current HNWCS students. The PTO works to support the school's educational goals, to provide a safe and healthy learning environment, to enrich the HNWCS learning experience, and to enhance the mutual understanding among the parents, teachers, and the board of directors. HNWCS PTO has been playing a very important role in supporting education, operation, and administration, as well as safeguarding HNWCS students and organizing local Chinese community events.

Parent On-Duty

To keep Houston Northwest Chinese School campus a safe, civil place, PTO decide to resume parent on-duty patrol. The parent(s) of each student has to be on duty at least once every school year. If a family has more than one student, the parent(s) may have to be on duty twice. The $25 deposit will only be returned after the above requirement has been satisfied. We will try to have 1 male and 1 female parent for each week so they can check all the restrooms. our PTO duty coordinator, will contact you to confirm your schedule. If you cannot make it the on your scheduled day, please arrange for substitution. If you need help swapping schedule with other parents, please contact the coordinator at least a week before hand to allow for enough time to coordinate. Failure to do so will result in your deposit being forfeited.

Basic description:
1. Please arrive 10 minutes early and stay behind 10 minutes.
