Teacher-Parent Council (TPC)
Prospect TPC enriches the educational environment and builds relationships among teachers, parents, and students. Members can stay in the know with staff reports and help to provide an enriching experience for PHS students.
TPC is the financial backing for:
- Senior Student Scholarships
- Student Club and Organization Mini Grants
- Spotlight Grant and Student Recognition
- Assistance for ‘Prospect Gives Back’ day each October, The Underground and Knight’s Way
- Back-to-school Week Speaker Presentation
- Special student/parent speakers
- Staff appreciation events
- and more!
Membership Dues: annual school year fee of $20 (per family) includes access to Prospect Directory Spot app with student/parent phone, address, email information, and school calendar with links.
Fundraiser: annual craft fair in November. 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. The 2020 craft fair has been canceled due to the Pandemic.
Scholarships: TPC currently offers six 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.
