WELCOME

Parents, teachers, and students are invited to become members of the Shortridge High School Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA). As a team, we support Shortridge High School’s programs and activities, with the goal of enhancing the educational and social experience of all students. We strive to build and maintain a strong community among school staff and families, offer opportunities for parental involvement, and support our teachers in a variety of ways.

HOW IS THE PTSA FUNDED?

The PTSA’s funding comes from membership dues ($10 per member, per year), individual and corporate donations and grants, and proceeds from our annual fundraiser. Our ability to provide ongoing support and encouragement to our staff, host special community-building events, offer teacher grants at Shortridge High School, depends entirely on the generosity of our community each year. To make a donation, click here for the PTSA Donation page.

I WANT TO GET INVOLVED

If you’re looking for ways to become more involved, we’re happy to use as many of our team members as possible. We have numerous volunteer opportunities with varying time commitments, whether you prefer committee or solo activities, daytime or evening events, or ongoing or one-time events.

WHEN SHALL WE MEET?

During the 2016-2017 school year, we are combining some Parent Education events with our PTSA business meetings regularly. We also encourage smaller task-oriented workgroups to meet regularly to plan and implement activities.
