Happy New Year!!

I would like to start with thank you. With the monies we have raised so far,  we were able to fund the teacher wish list of $7,500 and raise over $8,000 for the sports program from the Casino Night fundraiser.

Have you told yourself you would like to help but not sure how?  Ask us how.   We have many areas where parent volunteers are always welcome:  becoming a member, registering for SCRIP, committee positions, and more.  This year, we have some new faces and energy which has been great to help FOPHS keep evolving to becoming a great parent organization that supports Placer.  If you are interested in helping out, plan to come to a meeting or email us. We would like to hear from you!

We have some committee positions opening up that would be great to be filled before the next school year:

  • Membership  Coordinator –  Coordinating, tracking and promoting parent membership to increase number of members and donations
  • SCRIP Coordinator  – Promoting and tracking SCRIP program for various providers (Raleys, Savemart, Target and E-Scrip) to increase sign-ups for programs that raise funds for our teacher wish list
  • Communication Coordinator – Manage email notices to parents, coordinate articles from teachers, counselors and committee members to create the Hillmen Parent Monthly Newsletter.  Work with webmaster to update information online and post newsletter.

We encourage you to get involved.  It is a great way to stay informed on what is going on around the school.   You can come to our next board on February 5th at 6:30pm in the staff lounge (March 5th after that) to hear what we have planned and also hear  Mr. E talk about what is happening within the school and district.

Thank you,

Kim Lightfoot
