New Horizon School

April 25, 2022


Dear NHS Parents/Guardians, Board Members, Staff, and Faculty:
The NHS Board of Directors is busy getting ready for our open Annual Membership
Meeting. All members of the NHS organization (those receiving this letter) are invited to
attend the Annual Meeting.


The purpose of this meeting is to elect new board members for open positions, report on
the state of the school, and answer questions. There will also be a Town Hall style
segment of the meeting where I will encourage attendees to share their experiences
with NHS over the past year, and raise any relevant topics they’d like the Board to
address.


All members of the NHS organization have the privilege of nominating new board
members. This year, several vacancies exist; however, we are specifically looking for a
number of parents/guardians, alumni, and community members to join our board. We
need your help and serving on the Board is a great way to connect more deeply
with the school!

Next steps:
We are actively seeking candidates now. Please review attachments A & B to
understand the roles and needs of the board. While you are able to nominate someone
the day of the Annual Membership Meeting (just before the meeting is called to order), I
am asking that you submit all nominations by May 11th. Doing so will allow us to be
better prepared for the meeting and have a chance to invite all nominated individuals.
Open Positions:
 1 – Parent/Guardian Position to serve a minimum 3-year term. Parents/Guardians
of a currently enrolled student in the school may be nominated to serve in these
positions.
 6 – Community Positions to serve a minimum 3-year term. Community members
who do not have a child enrolled in the school may be nominated to serve in these
positions.
 3 – Alumni/Parent of an Alum Positions to serve a minimum 3-year term. Parent or
Guardian of a former student, or a former student over eighteen years of age may
be nominated to serve in these positions.
Thank you! On behalf of all of the Board, we look forward to seeing you at our Annual
Membership Meeting on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, at 5:30 PM, on Zoom.


Sincerely,
Nick Corrigan
Nick Corrigan, NHS Board President
