  • Plano’s Closet is holding a coat drive through 11/20. Donations should be winter coats and jackets (sweaters and hoodies are not needed at this time), gently worn (no stains or holes), in sizes to fit high school/senior high school students (no children’s clothing, please). Collection boxes are located in the front office, library, and room A102a.

  • The PTSA has received requests for almost $12,000 from Faculty and Staff this year, and our current budget can only support approximately $3,200. If you haven’t already made a donation to PTSA, then please consider donating since any amount will help. Thanks for giving during November to support PSHS students and teachers!
