Miami Palmetto Senior High PTSA
For over 50 years the Miami Palmetto Senior High School PTSA has worked with teachers, parents and administrators to cultivate excellence in academics, sports and leadership opportunities for our students. Through volunteerism, advocacy, fundraising and community action, we make sure that every child is welcome at Miami Palmetto Senior High, and that every family finds a home in the PTSA.
Give to the PTSA Today!
Every donation is invested right back in the school to augment the resources and experiences of our parents, teachers and students.
Please help our PTSA find a pot of gold – or at least some green – to enhance Miami Palmetto Senior High’s learning environment. You can make our “LUCK O’ THE PANTHER” silent auction this March a success by contributing or soliciting donations of goods and services for online bidding. In exchange, we offer a variety of great publicity opportunities to recognize your support – it’s a great chance to advertise your business and show the community you care.
What type donations are needed? Nothing is too small (or too big!) Great examples include: Certificates for restaurants or activities (i.e. bowling, Heat tickets, ceramics) hotel stays (Florida, US, international), airline tickets, cruise vouchers, gift baskets, wine, jewelry, services (test prep, dentistry, dry cleaning; salon manicure, blow dry, haircut; landscaping), etc. We’re open to anything you can donate that you think would sell.
Recognition for donations (in-kind or monetary) includes featuring you or your company on auction signage, inclusion in the auction invitation posted on our website and e-blasted in our electronic newsletter multiple times to over 2,000 homes throughout Miami — families of students, community members, business owners, and more! And because the PTSA is a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization, your donation is tax-deductible.
Stay Close, Go Far
Palmetto’s graduates walk among the best in the nation after graduation. The Class of 2016 exemplifies why we all chose excellence in our own backyard.
The School Store sells uniform compliant apparel and school supplies. We are open every day from 10:30 am to noon in room 305B. Designs and styles change frequently, so stop by often. All profits are immediately reinvested in your school through the PTSA.
Palmetto's Hall of Fame
Although Palmetto alumni have long made a name for themselves across many disciplines and throughout the world, no formal Alumni Association existed until recently. Some local graduates briefly explored the idea of founding such an association in the early 2000’s, but it was not until 2010, when PTSA parent Susan Admire Harris offered to spearhead a steering committee comprised of alumni and Palmetto parents, that the first important steps were taken.
The Association has its own website (www.palmettohighalumni.org), where members may seek out news about the school and former classmates as well as information regarding upcoming reunions.
MPSH is now an electronics waste recycling drop-off point. Leave your used monitors, TVs, fax machines, cell phones and other electronics with Ms. Shlachtman in the science department at any time. The PTSA will receive a cash donation for every item you recycle, plus you help out the planet. It’s a win-win!
