Happy January Hillmen Family!Spring will soon be upon us and that means our Spring fundraiser! April 7th is the Green and Gold Food and Wine event and we need all hands on deck! Please consider volunteering or becoming a sponsor for this fun event. This is how we fund our yearly wish list for teachers!
Also on the horizon is Grad Night Alive. The Grad Night committee is hard at work planning this year’s grad night. This event is a really fun time for grads that keeps them safe and off the streets after graduation. It in-cludes Casino games, food, entertainment, swimming and more!
Please consider attending one of our meetings. Friends of Placer High School meets the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30 in the staff room. We have a board position of Secretary that needs to be filled as well! We would love to have you!

Dear Placer High School Families: We have been able to provide school support over the years thanks to parents that have donated to the membership drive. 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. This year, the wish list includes books, calculators, drills for Mechatronics, frames for the art department, specimens for Anatomy, soil testing kits for Environmental Science, and a field trip to the Crocker Art Museum for Humanities. We are still working towards our goal to raise over $5,000 in membership so we can continue support the teachers, classrooms, and activities at placer High School. If you have not become a member yet, it is not too late. To become a member, you can go to www.fophs.org and click on the DONATE button on the front page or send an email to email@example.com for a form to be emailed to you.
Sincerely, Lisa Voss
Dear Hillmen Families,
Welcome back to school for 2017-18! I am so excited that we had such a great
turnout at Back to School Night, as well as to our first FOPHS meeting. We had some
new parents step up and fill some empty board positions and volunteer to help with
some other roles as well. We LOVE seeing new people at our meetings! We so
appreciate the input.
Our next meeting is next Wednesday, October 4 at 6:30 in the staff room. We are still
in dire need of a Grad Night chair. If you feel you have a talent in this area and would
like to help keep this life saving program alive, please come to our meeting or email
me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently we are rolling right along with early plans for Pie Day, Wish List granting,
and our Spring Fundraiser. Come join the fun!
President, Friends of Placer High School

Happy (Almost) Spring Hillmen families! FOPHS is busy getting ready to host the Annual Green and Gold fundraiser on March 18th. This will be a wine and food tasting event with several local restaurants and wineries sharing their deliciousness! This is FOPHS’ only fundraiser and supports the Placer Teachers’ wish list. Last year we raised $13,000 for the wish list and granted every wish on it. Please consider attending this year. It is a great time and a great date night! Grad Night Committee is in full swing and looking for someone to take over the reins next year. If you are a parent of a freshman or sophomore, consider getting involved in this great event. Grad night keeps our grads off the roads in supervised activities overnight. There is a different theme each year and the students really love it! We would love to have you at one of our meetings. They are held the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30 in the staff lounge!

Pamela and Zane Dobson planted their vineyard ten years ago with friends and family, and they’ve been making award winning wines since the very first vintage. They’ve been open almost every weekend for over 5‐years now. Their rustically elegant tasting shed is positioned right next to the vineyard, where you can enjoy relaxing views in the picnic area. They produce Petite Sirah, Primitivo, Barbera, Zin, Rose, and Albarino.
PaZa – Expressions of Passion, one Small‐Lot at a time!
