At the beginning of the year, we promised not to ask you to buy/sell “stuff”; we’d simply ask that if you believe in the importance of the middle school experience, you would contribute toward those efforts. With nearly 1,200 students to support, Nagel PTO can’t be funded solely on the membership of less than 300 families, spirit wear sales, dine & donate events, Box Tops, and Kroger Rewards.
At our meeting last Wed, PTO approved a motion to release the funds needed for the Cafetorium Projection equipment & installation. While it will remove some "cushion" from our budget, it's a space used by our students, and community, in so many ways that it seemed to be the right way to immediately invest our member's and supporter's contributions to Nagel.
We'd love to do more and have visions of making the Activity Lobby and Cafetorium places that feature our Nighthawks and the many, many ways they SOAR. We'd appreciate any consideration to helping us fund those projects. We're thrilled that in the past 4 year's, former Nighthawk families have provided for amazing outdoor spaces and 21st century learning and design opportunities in our Learning Commons, along with school-wide security cameras and signage totaling nearly $100,000. The SOAR Campaign is Nagel's "Walkathon" - we know those events bring prizes & parties for kids, they just don't work at Nagel. While the "prizes" don't look like they do in the elementary buildings, I think many of our students would agree that lunches & classrooms outside, large format and 3D printers, and sound and video equipment that allow them to "show what they know" in ways that speak to them and that you knowing we've invested mightily in their safety are all pretty amazing "prizes".
Thanks in advance for helping us make Nagel the best it can be for our students and future Nighthawks!

Davis-SOAR and HOPE Scholarships
#NagelBeTheChange isn’t just a slogan!
Our students and staff can be a part of making an impact at Nagel and support scholarships awarded by Nagel PTO to Anderson and Turpin seniors involved in LINK Crew and HOPE Squad. Our bookstore is "selling" Post It Notes customized with our buildings challenge to students and staff to be a part of the change they want to see in our building, community and beyond. A pack of 25 notes can by "purchased" for a donation in any amount. The notes were donated to Nagel PTO which means that all donations will go directly to increasing our current Davis-SOAR Scholarship, awarded to a senior member of each high school's LINK Crew, and establish a new HOPE Scholarship, to benefit a senior member of each high school's HOPE Squad.
