High School Field Facelift:
 
WE STILL NEED HELP!!
 
WANTED! Volunteers to join an important task force that will leave a legacy at our school. As you know our school is going through a $50 million+ renovation and will soon be Miami-Dade County’s flagship high school. However, our field needs a facelift as well, and a field update is not included in the GOB project scope.
 
We are looking for a few good community members (parents, alumni, community members, whomever!) to take on a fundraiser to get us a new field in conjunction with the brand-new school we will be getting. We already have a few interested volunteers but more is needed (this is a great project for dads, too). Palmetto has a huge network of not only current families, but alumni, current and past staff members, and community members and business owners who we could reach out to for funding. Interested? Contact Gina Vinueza, Palmetto High PTSA President, at ginaPTSA@gmail.com . Let’s get this ball rolling (get it).
GET YOUR PALMETTO SPIRIT WEAR:
 
The Miami Palmetto Senior's PTSA school store is operated by Sharingwear.org , a charitable organization founded and operated by Nicole Marks, a Palmetto High junior. Sharingwear's Palmetto Senior Online Store is the sole PTSA/school source to buy dress code shirts for Palmetto Senior as the Palmetto Senior PTSA does not operate a physical store at school. All clothing featured on Sharingwear's Palmetto Senior Online Store are approved by Miami Palmetto Senior High as qualified dress code attire that can be worn to school five days a week.
Designs can be purchased in multiple clothing styles (tshirts, sweatshirts, etc.) and some designs are available in multiple colors. Orders are custom printed and take 2-3 weeks for delivery. Several great new designs have been added.
 
All profits from Sharingwear's Palmetto Senior Online Store are shared 50% with the Palmetto Senior PTSA and 50% with Sharingwear's Charity of the Month. The current Charity of the Month is Paws for Panthers, Palmetto Senior's own charitable organization, which assists MPSH students who are experiencing serious financial hardship.
 
Please visit SharingWear.org to stock up on Palmetto gear!
Have Something You Want to Share?
If there is something you would like to share in the MPSH weekly e-blast, please email KatieLAbbott@comcast.net by the end of the school day every Friday.
