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.

New Online Store for Uniform Apparel!
Visit sharingwear.org for your uniforms!
The PTSA is excited to announce our partnership with Sharingwear.org, a charitable organization founded and operated by an incoming Palmetto Senior student. Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, the PTSA will no longer be operating a physical store at school. Instead, uniforms may be purchased at Sharingwear’s Palmetto Senior Online Store, which features t-shirts, sweatshirts, and other clothing approved by Miami Palmetto Senior High as qualifying uniforms to be worn to school five days a week. Please note that each design can be purchased in multiple clothing styles (t-shirt, sweatshirt, long sleeve, etc.) and some have several color choices. If you see a design you like, click on it to see the various options.
STANDARD DELIVERY TIME IS APPROXIMATELY 3 WEEKS, BUT EXPEDITED SHIPPING ON SOME ITEMS IS AVAILABLE FOR AN ADDITIONAL FEE.
HB 7069 - What Now?
HB 7069 barely passed, but now it’s law. School districts and municipalities statewide are figuring out how it will affect zoning, funding and everyday management of public schools. The Miami-Dade County Council of PTA/PTSAs has written a white paper on the nuts and bolts of the bill and what you can do to make sure our schools are safe, strong and solvent.

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!
