A Message from the President


August, 2016

I hope everyone had a great summer. As your new PTSA president, I welcome both our new and returning parents, teachers and students.

We are kicking off the 2016-17 school year with lots of exciting programs and projects planned that will enhance our school. I am blessed to have a strong and dynamic PTSA board, but we need your help. I encourage every to get involved, we can use your support regardless of how much time you have to offer. As a mother of three, and a school volunteer since their elementary school days, I can tell you even minimal involvement can yield lifetime friendships in addition to the obvious benefit to our school and our children.

Miami Palmetto Senor High School is a uniform school, but did you know our PTSA operates an on-premises school store where you can buy all of your child’s required apparel, and ALL the proceeds are reinvested in our school, and hence our children? What’s more, many of these school-approved garments were designed by own students, so we offer the styles and comfort teens want – transformed into uniform approved fashions. Please purchase all of your child’s uniform needs at our store, it’s open daily from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM

As the saying goes, it takes a village… well, my friends, we have a huge village and need each and every one of you. Please pay the nominal dues to join our PTSA, consider a tax deductible donation (nothing is too small, every dollar counts) and volunteer as your time and talents permit! We have a diverse range of opportunities and needs where you can help out, whether you can offer an hour or two on occasion or have substantial time to invest.

Thank you for choosing Miami Palmetto Senor High School, and most especially for your commitment to our children!

Dina Lara

Miami Palmetto Senior High PTSA President 2016-2017
