December/January Newsletter and Message from our President

December/January Newsletter

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 $5,000 in requests that supports many classrooms from science, math, english to mechatronics, art, print making and much more.  Our goal was to raise at least $5,000 and we are still $2,700 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.
