November Newsletter and Message from our President

November Newsletter 20162017

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 included contribution to the kiln in Ceramics, a standing desk, readers for Spanish, lab items for biology and chemistry, Physics lab supplies, English resource books and and literary posters for classrooms.

We are still working towards our goal to raise over $5,000 in membership so we can continue to 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 and click on the DONATE button on the front page or send an email to for a form to be emailed to you. We always encourage parents to get involved please come to one of our meetings this year and find out what FOPHS is all about. Attending the meeting allows you to hear, in more depth, what’s going on at PHS, ask questions and get an update from our principal, Mr. Caminiti, who also attends regularly. Last month we got a tour of Placer’s 21st century classroom.

We need committee members for both our Grad Night Committee and our Spring Fundraiser!

So stay connected to what is going on at the school and come to our next board meeting, Meetings are the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm in the staff lounge upstairs above the school office. Thank you in advance for your support!

Sincerely, Lisa Voss, FOPHS President
