THANK YOU to all the LOVE Our Panthers Participants!
 
This year’s Love Our Panthers Mixer was a HUGE success thanks to all of you who Sponsored, Volunteered, Donated, Bid on Items (Silent Auction will continue until this FRIDAY!), and just came to socialize! Everything we raised goes right back into our school to support our students, teachers, and staff. It’s all possible because of your support and generosity!
We LOVE you all… We are ALL Panthers!
Call for Palmetto High PTSA Nominating Committee (“Nom Com”) Volunteers
 
Palmetto PTSA is looking for parent/community volunteers to aid us in finding next year’s PTSA Executive Board members. These are required positions that must be filled in order for our PTSA to run efficiently. The role of the Nominating Committee is to help us fill these important roles for the 2020-2021 school year. Responsibilities include identifying, interviewing and nominating candidates (which may include incumbents) for our Executive Board positions . Your only role is to nominate candidates, there is no requirement for you to personally be on the Board next year. Prior experience is not necessary as you will be given guidance and training. The role will likely take 5-10 hours of your time over the next few months. If interested please contact Gina Vinueza at ginaPTSA@gmail.com .

PTSA Email Scam:
DON'T FALL FOR THE PTSA EMAIL SCAM! If you get an email from one of the Palmetto High PTSA Board members, particularly from our President Gina Vinueza, and it asks you to buy gift cards or something similar, IT IS A SCAM. PTSA will NEVER ask you to buy gift cards and send pix of them. We are very aware of this scam and the hackers are trying it on PTAs/PTSAs/PTOs across the country. Please delete the emails. No need to tell us (unless it's really weird!), as we're trying to get it resolved. Thanks!
