Dear Parents, Students and Teachers,
Peachtree Ridge High School PTSA welcomes you to a promising new school year! As parents, we all support our children in their educational journey. As a PTSA, we work collaboratively to support the school through many events and volunteer opportunities.
This is your PTSA, and you are welcome and encouraged to attend all of our meetings and events or volunteer your time to ensure collective success. PTSA is the largest child’s advocacy association; thank you for supporting our efforts to make every child’s potential a reality.
We are proud of the role the PTSA plays to support our school with programs such as Reflections, Homecoming Coat Check, College application assistance, Sweet Treats for Teachers, Custodian Appreciation, Baccalaureate and so many more events throughout the year.
The PTSA’s ability to fund these programs and many others is possible only because of the generous donations of time, expertise, and funds by Peachtree Ridge teachers, staff, parents, students and the community, and there are always opportunities to participate in big and small ways, from home and at school. So, I invite you to join the PRHS PTSA and get involved! We cannot do this without you! Thank you for helping in any way you can and showing our children that they, their school, and their education are important.
