Green and Gold Food and Wine Festival Announcing Participating Wineries

FOPHS is very excited to announce some of our favorite local wineries participating in The “Green and Gold Food and Wine Festival” on  April 9, 2016:

To wet your appetite, each week leading up to the Green and Gold Food and Wine Festival, we will share highlights of each of the wineries attending our event.


This week’s featured winery is PaZa.PaZa Logo

PaZa Estate Winery is on the Placer Wine Trail, about half-way between Auburn, Newcastle, and Lincoln.  Pamela and Zane Dobson planted their vineyard almost ten years ago with friends and family, and they’ve been making award winning wines ever since.  Their tasting shed is open weekends, next to the vineyard where you can enjoy relaxing views with a bottle of Petite Sirah, Primitivo, Barbera, Zin, or Albarino in the picnic area.

About the owners:

Zane’s originally from Oklahoma, and his first career was in general aviation as a designer.  His first passion was sport cars and road racing.  Throughout the ‘90s he lived to race, spending many weekends every year with the Porsche Club or other racing organizations.

Pamela’s a California girl, with a career spanning 40-years in retail grocery industry.  She was an avid bicyclist, long-distance hiker, and snow skier for many years, and participated in numerous long distance bike races as well as multi day cross-country hikes.

February Newsletter and Message from Our President

February Newsletter 20152016

Planning has begun for our annual fundraiser in an effort to raise money for ALL PROGRAMS at PHS.  This year we have chosen “Green & Gold Food and Wine Festival” as our theme, a food and wine tasting highlighting the wonderful vintners and eateries in our area.  This fun event, which will be held on Saturday April 9, 2016, at Gold Country Fairgrounds in the Sierra Building, provides an opportunity for the community to support their high school while enjoying food, drinks, entertainment, silent auction, and raffle prizes.  Mark your calendars and look for e-mails on how to buy your tickets in the next couple of weeks!  (If you’d like to help with this event please let us know!)

Wondering how you can become more involved in FOPHS? Many opportunities are available at various levels of commitment.  This year, we have some new faces and energy, which has been great to help FOPHS keep evolving as a great parent organization that supports Placer.  If you are interested in helping out, at any level, please join us at a meeting or email us. We would love to hear from you!

We are looking for some energetic parents to fill committee positions which are opening up. It would be great to have people in place before the next school year.  You can come to a meeting, email us at  or call me at 916-952-1019.

We encourage all parents to get involved.  It’s a great way to stay informed about what is going on around the school.   You can come to our next board meeting(s) on Feb. 3th and/or March 2nd at 6:30 pm in the staff lounge to hear what we have planned, as well as hearing from Mr. E about what is happening within the school and district.

Thank you,

Kim Lightfoot, President
