About

Tuscarora High School PTSA supports the students, teachers, staff, and families of Tuscarora High School, in Frederick, MD.  We support the Titan community throughout the school year and have traditionally run the following programs:

  • Faculty and Staff “Welcome” Breakfast – breakfast provided during the first week faculty and staff return to school after summer break.
  • Academic Achievement Recognition – Held twice a year, in the fall for undergraduates and in the spring for seniors.
  • Information Nights – examples are New Drivers, Social Media Safety, and Dating Safety, provided for parents and students.
  • Academic $500 grant – awarded to a senior in the spring and paid to student’s college account.
  • Teacher/Staff $500 grant – awarded to provide teacher or staff member with funds to finance a program or event that benefits the THS community.

The PTSA meets monthly, usually the 3rd Tuesday evening of each month, in the THS Media Center. We welcome anyone from the THS greater community to join us and hope to increase our membership.  With more members, we are able to fund and plan more events for the school.
