Membership

Membership

Become a member of THS PTSA and begin making a difference in your student’s high school community today.  Memberships cost $12 per person, and we strongly encourage your student to join as well – particularly if your student considers applying for our senior scholarship.  Students must be members to apply for the scholarship, and they earn an additional point each year they are members.  We would also love to have student participation at our meetings, as their voices are important in providing good programming.  If students assist with our events, they can also earn service learning hours.

Please use MemberHub to complete your membership: https://tuscarorahighptsa.memberhub.store/

Alternatively, you can download and complete the THS Membership Form 2019-2020 . The completed form should be mailed to the school (attention THS PTSA) or handed in at the front office.

Memberships cost $12 per person.  A portion of each cost goes to Maryland PTA and PTA Council of Frederick County, as they provide support, training, and leadership to the local Frederick County PTA and PTSA units.

Participation

Participation is not required of members, however we often ask for help in many ways, including:

  • signing up to bring food for one or more of the Faculty and Staff breakfast, Homecoming, Academic  Achievement nights, etc.
  • assisting with our fundraising efforts
  • assisting with information nights
  • decorating or set-up/take-down for events
  • input at our meetings

We do not actively solicit your involvement on an individual basis unless you’ve indicated areas of interest on your membership form; however, we often send out emails through Find Out First for volunteering or donation needs.

Fundraising

The PTSA tries to keep fundraising at a minimum; in fact, we encourage you to give a donation with your membership fees if you would rather donate directly than participate in one of our fundraisers.  This year, we are fundraising through AmazonSmile and monthly restaurant nights. We are open to other fundraiser ideas as well!
