PTSO Programs & Fundraising

Our primary objective as a PTSO is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources, and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child and to benefit the school. To meet this important objective, we fundraise. Membership dues and fundraiser dollars go towards sponsoring and supporting Teacher Appreciation Events, Classroom Grants, Parent Communication, Educational Enrichment and various other needs at PHS as they occur throughout the year.

Become a Volunteer….Why YOU should get involved!

We are a small and busy group. This is where you come in! We are a team of volunteers and need your help; and so do our children. Our school is an amazing community and is constantly growing and striving to make improvements. A special thanks to all of our volunteers from last year for all their hard work and dedication. Please come and join us!
