Welcome Back!

Greetings new Families!

The Shortridge High School Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is excited to welcome you to our community! We can’t wait to get to know you and your scholar. We have many exciting events planned for the upcoming school year and would love for you to join us.

Look for us at the ‘Welcome to Campus Day’ on Wednesday, July 27 from 9:00-11 and 4:00-6.  Students will be able to receive their school schedule, retrieve locker combinations, tour the building, and have their photo taken for their student identifications and meet fellow scholars. Parents will be able to meet with school’s administration, be greeted by returning parents, ask questions of our counseling department, sign up for Managebac (our online grading program) and submit all forms and paperwork.  

You will also get to meet the athletic coaches and learn about the other extracurricular activities that Shortridge has to offer. SHS spirit wear and gear will also be available.  So, don’t miss it!

The Global Gala is this Saturday!!

Global Gala Logo 5

Let’s be devilish at our first annual fundraiser!

Shortridge High Global Gala

April 23rd from 7:00-11:00 p.m.

at the Basile Opera Center

4011 N. Pennsylvania

Please join us and celebrate Shortridge High School.  We will have a fun evening of camaraderie, games, food and drinks, and an amazing silent auction. Bring your significant other, your bestie or a colleague, but don’t bring your kids. This will be an adult-only event (yahooo!).  You can, however talk about your amazing kids and their incredible school, because that is what we will be celebrating!  This sounds a little informal, because we want you to know that this is not a formal event.  It is, most importantly, a fun event where we can socialize and get to know each other more.

We will also raise some money for Shortridge on this night. Even though our teachers know how to get along on a shoestring, they need more resources to be competitive with other world-class schools.  This year the money raised at this event will support STTEAMM education.  What is STTEAMM?  Science, Technology, Theater, Engineering, Art, Math and Music. STTEAMM is long for STEM.  We think that adding the arts is important for our students.  There is a great article on the importance of STEM education here.

By buying tickets, playing games at the Global Gala, bidding on silent auction items, making a donation and volunteering, you will be supporting Shortridge. Your contribution helps Shortridge continue our tradition of offering Indianapolis youth a rigorous education and resource-rich experience. Every gift makes a difference, no matter what the amount.

To purchase tickets or to make a donation, click the tickets button.  The first 75 ticket purchases will receive 5 extra game tickets each, so don’t procrastinate!
