September Newsletter and Message from Our President

September Newsletter 20152016

We would like to welcome all new and returning parents to Placer High. We are off to a great and busy start! The Friends of Placer High School (FOPHS) is your parent organization and we have two objectives. Our First objective is to raise money to support the school. The primary way we do this is through membership, and our membership drive is in full swing! Your membership in FOPHS is a very powerful way for you to directly impact the learning/teaching environment at PHS. Membership dollars go towards granting wish list items, brought to us by the teachers, for needed materials not currently funded. Every year we are able to provide great enhancement to the classrooms through your generosity. We would like to ask you to please join FOPHS by making a donation of $25.00 (+/-). Considering students will be in school for 180 days and for a total of 1250+ hours, this breaks down to a mere 14 cents a day. That’s a great investment into your school.
This year you can pay online through our website. 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.
An additional way you can support FOPHS is by joining/using our Scrip programs, which include: Raleys/Bel Air, Savemart, Safeway, and Target. It’s easy! Please ask us for information about Scrip.
Our second objective is to provide information to the FOPHS members via email, web or newsletter. This wonderfully informative newsletter is the only newsletter generated to keep you abreast of what’s happening on campus.
Come to a meeting and see what we are all about. Attending the meeting allows you to hear, in more depth, what’s going on at PHS, ask questions, get updates and also hear from our principal, Mr. Efstathiu, who attends regularly. Our first meeting is September 2nd at 6:30pm in the staff lounge upstairs above the school office.
This year the following position(s) are open on the committee:
Grad Night Coordinator – Oversee details for senior grad night and work with volunteers to plan, fundraise, design, decorate and staff the event.
Thank you in advance for your support. We look forward to meeting you!


Kim Lightfoot & Judy Pruett

FOPHS President and Vice President
