Membership Dues: annual school year fee of $25 (per family) includes access to Prospect directory of student/family contact information.
Fundraiser: annual craft fair This longtime community favorite event showcases over the 150 local vendors and their handmade items. The craft fair is also the largest school event opportunity for students to earn service hours.
Scholarships: TPC currently offers multiple unique scholarship categories each year to our graduating seniors. Students participate by writing essays in early spring. Scholarships are presented at annual Awards Night.
Mini Grants/Innovation Grants: each year, student clubs/organizations request funding. TPC typically supports over 15-20 each year.
Speakers: TPC works with school staff to identify compelling ideas for featured speakers and topics presented to students and parents. Previous presentations include: Handicap This!, Mike Smith Live: Dude. Be Nice, and FAIR Counseling vaping presentation.
We celebrate our teachers and PHS staff during American Education Week in fall and Teacher Appreciation Week in the spring. We also provide snacks during Parent/Teacher conferences.

TPC is not what you might be used to with grade/middle school PTAs, however we still need parent involvement for the success of our organization. We encourage you to attend a meeting and volunteer to support our events.
