PTO has been busy this October recognizing both our students and staff. On 10/13/22, we supported the Quarter 1 Cougar Stars luncheon and on 10/19/22, we provided staff a grab and go snack prior to thier All Staff Meeting. Next up will be our Annual Pie and Cider Day for the staff...with the holidays quickly approaching, it's a great opportunity to share our gratitude and appreciation with them. If you would like to contribute needed items for our Pie and Cider Day, keep an eye out for a Sign Up Genius list in the next few weeks.
The next monthly PTO Meeting is set for Tuesday, 11/01/22, from 5-6 pm in the Staff Lounge. While we love the opportunity to engage with everyone in person, we understand that sometimes it just isn't possible given busy schedules. So, we will again offer a virtual option to attend the monthly PTO meetings. Stay tuned for the link on our website and social media pages (Facebook - Steele Canyon High School PTO and Instagram - schspto).
As always, we appreciate your membership to support our students, staff and school community. Thank you to those who have already joined SCHS PTO! If you would like to join at any membership level, please visit our website.
