Welcome to the Scarsdale High School PTA Website

Dear Parents:

School starts on Tuesday September 2nd!  The PTA has been busy preparing for the 2014-15 year.  Here are a few September highlights of PTA-sponsored events to mark down:

   *Driver Safety Assembly:  September 9 at 7:30 pm

   *Parent-to-Parent Orientation: September 10 at 7:30 pm

   *New Families Welcome Coffee:  September 12 at 9:00 am

   *Multi-Cultural Committee Welcome Coffee:  September 23 at 9:00 am

   *PTA Meeting and Program:  September 29 at 7:30 pm

The main source of funding for all our PTA events is YOUR membership dues.  If you have not already done so, please take the time to click on the link below and join the PTA.  Our goal is 100% membership!  With your membership you will receive a directory.  You will also be able to purchase extra directories when you join the PTA.  Directories are not available for non-PTA members. 

We are also seeking volunteers for many of our high school committees.  This is a great way to stay involved, and to participate in a way that fits your schedule and interest.  Please click on the volunteer link below to see a list of the many volunteer opportunities and to fill out a volunteer form.  The College and Career Center is still in need of parent volunteers to help support parents, students and the counseling office.   

August is also a busy time for our school athletes.  A current physical exam and the new Gold Card Health History Consent Form are required for tryouts and participation in school sports.  However, the Gold Card interview process has been eliminated.  The new Gold Card Health History Consent Form can be found on the school nurse’s webpageThis four-page document must be completed and signed by a parent.  Completed health and gold card forms can be faxed, emailed, or dropped off at the nurse’s office.  Once forms have been reviewed, a Gold Card will be issued and available for pick up at the nurse’s office (please allow at least 48 hours for a Gold Card to be available).  All students must bring their Gold Card to their first practice or try-out, and give the card to their coach.  The fall sports tryout and start date schedule is listed by sport on the Athletics tab on the high school website. 

As always, we welcome your questions and input to our email address at shspta10583@gmail.com.

Wishing you an enjoyable end to the Summer,
