Dear Tuscarora Families,
On behalf of the Tuscarora High School PTSO, welcome to a new school year! For those families who are returning to Tuscarora High School, I thank you for your past support of the THS PTSO and hope that you will continue to support our efforts this year. To our new families, I extend a heartfelt welcome to the husky family! I encourage you to join the THS PTSO and get involved to make your child’s high school experience a great one.
The THS PTSO is unique since we exist to serve the best interests of all students at Tuscarora High School. We support all organizations, clubs and programs operating within the school. Our goal is to make everyone's experience a positive one at THS, and your support will help us succeed.
As always, we hope that 100% of our families will join the PTSO. Please help us reach this goal by returning the membership form to school with your check made payable to THS PTSO or by clicking the link above to pay online. The membership fee of $40 goes a long way to support the programs we are committed to providing at Tuscarora High School. This fee, along with direct donations, are the main source of our PTSO funding. Throughout the school year, we also hold spirit nights at local businesses who generously offer a percentage of sales back to us. Please consider supporting some of our spirit nights.
Last year the THS PTSO was proud to award Program Grants to a number of organizations in our school totaling over $3,000. These grants were made possible because of the generosity of our members. With the grant requests exceeding our funds, we ask for your help to increase that amount this year. In addition, the PTSO awarded $3000 in scholarships to seniors that demonstrate exemplary qualities of the school’s motto: R.I.S.E., which stands for Respect, Integrity, Service, and Excellence. We also support Teacher Appreciation efforts to recognize our fantastic teachers and staff.
