  • The PTSA meeting/program this Thursday, 5/19, is an annual favorite for PSHS parents! There will be several $500 scholarship drawings for seniors who have been members for both years. Immediately following the 6:00 meeting in the cafeteria, stay for the popular Parent-to-Parent program at 6:30. A panel of parents of past PSHS students will share tips and answer questions. They have students who attend public and private colleges of various campus sizes, trade schools, community colleges, academic and sports scholarships, and more. You may also pick up your Unofficial Guide to PSHS at the meeting. See you there!


  • The PTSA would like to thank our Senior Celebration Lunch sponsors and door prize donors. Their commitment to the PSHS community is greatly appreciated! Thanks also to our fabulous PTSA volunteers for donating their time to help with activities like ticket sales and setup and serving, as well as all of the delicious desserts!

  • The PSHS PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) invites you to get a jumpstart on becoming a PTSA member now for the 2016-2017 school year.
