PTSA Fundraising

The PTSA works to facilitate communication between parents and the administration. Our funds are used for speakers, community-building activities and to help ensure that all students have access to school activities including field trips and the Junior Prom. We also help defray the cost of the Yearbook and assist with events such as Freshman Orientation, Senior Week activities and Homecoming Brunch.  

We ask you to support our fundraisers. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Michele Sloane.
