Welcome from your PTSA
Parents and students as we begin the academic year, I would like to welcome you and encourage you to become a PTSA member to help us to meet our GOALS:
- Facilitating communication with our SLHS families; through our SLHS/PTSA newsletter, weekly Keep In Touch messages, PTSA website, SLHS student directory, and Frequently Asked Questions booklet
- Providing recognition for students and staff; with honor roll breakfasts, Bringing Up Grades recognitions, Academic Letter Ceremony, scholarships at our Senior Award Ceremony, Reflections Program, VA PTA Citizenship Essay Program, Welcome Back Teacher Breakfast and Teacher Appreciation Luncheon
- Disseminating information through; presentations, speakers and discussions at PTSA meetings and assisting with: college application workshops, Postsecondary Options Day involvement, and the classroom support program
Membership is our primary funding for these important PTSA sponsored activities. Please help support these programs by joining. This year, membership dues are discounted online, and all members receive a discount on their directory purchases. Take care of both using PayPal on our Join or Donate page. Quick and easy, plus savings for you!
Volunteers help make these goals a reality. Indicate your interest using our online Volunteer Signup This does not obligate you, but will put you on a contact list for event and project chairs to contact when they need help. If you are unable to volunteer, consider making a monetary donation to SLHS PTSA; no donation is too small.
PTSA meetings are open to everyone and provide a great opportunity to learn more about our school, hear from departmental chairs, receive updates on PTSA activities, and learn about “this month at SLHS” from Ms. Retzer’s point of view. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm in the Media Center.
Looking forward to an exciting 2012-2013,
SLHS PTSA President
