- The next PTSA general meeting will be held on Tuesday, 12/1, at 6:00 in the cafeteria, followed by a Counseling Office presentation about college Financial Aid at 6:30. Parents, you won’t want to miss this! We will also have scholarship drawings for seniors who have been PTSA members for both years at PSHS. Students do not have to be present to win. We hope to see you there!
- Order tickets now for the PISD game night with Texas Legends Basketball on Saturday, 11/21. Tickets are just $10, and a portion of the proceeds supports PSHS. Please select Plano Senior High School when ordering. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/plano-isd-night-tickets-19170390153
- Taking a practice college test can help students become familiar with the format, length, and content in preparation for the official exams. Choose one of several tests offered at PSHS on Saturday, 1/30. Register online at this website.
- Here is an easy scholarship opportunity for seniors (no essays, no interviews, not based on GPA)! One PSHS senior will receive a $500 scholarship in a May drawing by the PISD Council of PTAs. Simply be a PTSA member in your senior year.
- 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!
- When you shop at Amazon, you can help earn money for our school at no cost to you. Simply start your shopping at smile.amazon.com and select ‘Plano Senior High School PTSA’ as your charitable organization. Amazon will donate 0.5% of each purchase.
- Nominate a deserving PSHS faculty member or parent for a PTSA Life Membership Award! The honorees receive free state PTA dues for life and are honored at the PISD Lifetime Award banquet in February. Just email this form to Jill Radasch (email@example.com) or leave it for her in the main office by 12/11 at 8 am. Form: https://planoptsa.membershiptoolkit.com/membership
