Friends of Placer High School of Auburn, CA is a non profit organization whose primary objective is to promote student welfare in the home, school, and community through the cooperative effort of parents, students, teachers and members of the community. We do this by supporting programs that strengthen communication, provide volunteer support, and through financial assistance that enhances, enriches and supplements district approved activities.
Our meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month. Everyone is welcome to attend!

- Holiday Boutique 12/7
We would like to thank all the parents who signed up to be a member this year and gave a donation. Your membership helps to support the teacher wish lists. The wish list this year is over $7,500 in requests that supports many classrooms from science, math, English, mechatronics, art, print making and much more. Our goal was to raise at least $5,000 and we are still $1,500 shy of our goal. Any donation matters, so we are kicking off the $5 membership drive in early January to support what $5 can do to support the school. Keep an eye out for your letter and if possible send your $5.00 donation in to FOPHS.
I would like to thank everyone who supported the Casino Night fundraiser for the Placer athletic program. We had a great event with over 100 people that attended. We are finalizing all the numbers and hope to share our results later in the month. I would like to recognize businesses and individuals you sponsored or donated to the event. Our community steps up every year to support Placer for all its fundraisers so as you shop for the holidays remember their support for Placer and shop local as a thank you.

The event will be held on November 16th from 6:30 to 11:00 pm at the Power Club located at 195 Harrison Avenue and includes casino games, food and drinks, silent auction, raffle and much more. You can buy your tickets by going to the Placer Website and clicking on the casino night link on the homepage to purchase online or call me at 916-952-1019. So come out and have some fun!
Thank you to those that have signed up to be a member of FOPHS. Your donations support the teachers’ wish list each year. Teachers are given the opportunity to make a wish list request from FOPHS to ask for items that would enrich a student’s education. We have been able to provide many requests over the years thanks to parents that donated to the membership drive.
The wish list includes many items for mechatronics, science, art, math, English and much more. So if you have not signed up to be a member, please do so. We take any donation! Even $5.00 matters when granting the wishes. Look for the wish lists items in the December newsletter that were provided to school.
Thanksgiving and we look forward to seeing or hearing from you at our next meeting December 3, 2013 at 6:30pm in the staff lounge. Thank you again for all of you that support FOPHS and the school

This year, if you are a Facebook user, as a fundraiser, Target will give money to schools all over the country for one simple act: a vote. Our school needs just 25 votes to earn a $25 donation from Target. But that’s only the beginning. For each additional vote, our school will get $1 more. So please remember that, although the gesture is small, the rewards are potentially huge. Go to GiveWith.Target.com to vote for Placer High School once a week through September 21 or until Target has given away all $5 million. And please forward this email to your friends. Vote and see rules at GiveWith.Target.com.

I would like to welcome all the new and returning parents to Placer. The Friends of Placer High School has two objectives, first to support communication to the parents via email, web or newsletter and two, raise monies to support the school. Over the years, FOPHS has been able to support such activities as wish lists for teachers and staff not funded by the school, Senior Grad night, staff appreciation, athletic programs and much more. We raise monies thru membership drive, SCRIP programs such as Raleys/Bel Air, Savemart and Safeway, casino night event and general donations from the community.
Our membership drive began on the first day of school. Our goal is to raise over $5,000, so if you did not receive your form in the mail in August let us know and we can send you another one. You can also donate online by going to www.fophs,org click on the donate button on the right hand side of the home page or click on the membership form located on the About Us page our website, complete it and send to the office with your donation. Any donation would be appreciated, it all makes a difference.
