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.

To become a member, go to Forms and download the form.  The completed form should be mailed to the school (attention THS PTSA) or handed in at the front office.

Participation

There are a number of areas in which members can participate and help our organization to thrive.  We 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.  Over the past several years, we have had a Barnes and Noble fundraiser late in the fall semester.  The fundraiser has done well, and students were able to earn service learning hours by helping the PTSA.  We are open to other fundraiser ideas as well!
