September Newsletter and Message from Our President

View SeptemberNewsletter  here!

I would like to welcome all the new and returning parents to Placer.  The Friends of Placer High School Organization has two objectives, first to provide information to the parents via email, web or newsletter and secondly, raise monies to support the school.  Over the years, FOPHS has been able to support such activities as the wish lists for teachers and staff not funded by the school, i.e., Senior Grad night, athletic programs and much more.   We raise monies thru our membership drive, SCRIP programs such as Raleys/Bel Air, Savemart and Safeway, A Casino Night event and general donations from the community.

We have kicked off our membership drive and asked you to consider becoming a member and making a donation.  Being a member is crucial to achieving our goal to raise over $5,000 so we can provide academic supplies for teachers and staff and support for many other programs, like sports, art and welding.  This year we sent out an email with a link to pay online through our website. We also mailed a newsletter to over 600 parents that do not have an email on file with the school.  If you did not receive an email or a form in the mail 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 so 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. Efstathiu, who also attends regularly.  Our first meeting is September 3rd 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 Chair – Oversee details for senior grad night and work with volunteers to fundraise, design and decorate, staff the event etc..

Thank you in advance for your support!


FOPHS President

Kim Lightfoot
