Plano Principals Association Scholarships and Spirit Wear


This year PPA is offering a larger selection of Plano ISD Spirit Wear for you and your staff to wear and show district spirit. When possible we have included selections that honor the senior high school feeder colors and a more neutral color for those who don't want to choose between PESH, PSHS, or PWSH. Please share this order form with your staff.

Plano Principal's Association is an organization of principals, assistant principals, and interns, which was developed to serve the interests of Plano ISD. We are advocates for our schools and their staff, along with offering scholarships and charitable donations to groups who serve our Plano ISD students. This year we have approved giving the following:

  • Four $1,000 scholarships for seniors pursuing education as a major - we plan to give one scholarship each to a worthy senior from PESH, PSHS, PWSH, and for the first time the Academy High School.
  • Three $1,000 scholarships for paraprofessionals pursuing their education degree.
  • Three $1,000 scholarships for aspiring administrators - current Plano ISD staff pursuing their Master's Degree in Educational Leadership.
  • Three $500 donations to charitable organizations who serve our school community
  • Donations of $50 given in the name of the individual to an organization chosen by retiring principals

Our spirit wear is priced between $12.00 and $36.00. A portion of the cost of each item sold goes to PPA to use for scholarships and donations. There are many schools who offer a day per week or per month for their staff to wear the PPA shirts with jeans. We hope that you can think of creative ways to inspire your staff to buy spirit wear and help support PPA in giving scholarships and charitable donations.

The thematic t-shirts are back by popular demand. Make your Mark is offered in a variety of colors. In addition, many of you expressed an interest in zip up outerwear. We have the choice of a long sleeve fleece jacket or a vest that zips up the front.

This semester's PPA spirit wear is offered for sale online. I am attaching a page with the shirts and jackets being offered and other information about them. The actual order form is online at the web address below. If you have trouble seeing it I find it works best in Internet Explorer on my computer. While filling out the order form, make sure you mark the box for "pick up". This will save you money and we will pick it up and send it through interoffice mail.
