Miami Palmetto Senior High School PTSA
Miami Palmetto Senior High School PTSA:
 
We are now entering week 4 since we were all together in school. I hope everyone is getting settled into the new routine of online school. We all have so many emotions and challenges to deal with at this time and our teens are missing out on so many important milestones and events. While we all want this to be over as soon as possible and for life to return to normalcy sooner than later, we also know how important it is for us to stay home and prevent even greater consequences for our world.
 
Our hearts are with our students, and especially our Seniors. PTSA wants to be a source of support and comfort during this time in any way we can. We will continue to send out weekly e-newsletters and post on Facebook/Instagram. Please make sure you are following us on Facebook and Instagram and have signed up to receive our e-newsletters!
-Gina Vinueza, PTSA President
2020-21 PTSA Proposed Slate:
 
Thank you to all of the volunteers who served on this year’s PTSA Nominating Committee:  Lynn Goldenberg, Amy Jellson, Zalaysha Lowry, Michelle Lipson, and Elyssa Lewis. 
Below is their Proposed Slate of Nominees for 2020-2021. Generally at the next PTSA meeting, the slate will be voted on, and floor nominations are also welcome. Due to COVID-19, we are not sure at this time when our next meeting will be and/or whether it will be online. Stay tuned for more information.
