What we do... Join us! It's fun!

With our Raider Fund, the SCHS PTSA provides funding towards technology purchases for classrooms, teacher grants, college scholarship for seniors, club support, teacher support, campus beautification, field trip expenses, spot awards, classroom supplies, special projects, staff appreciation lunches, and support for all departments.

  • Donations can be made directly to the Raider Fund at any time during the year on-line, in person at the school bank or by mail. 
  • PTSA hosts fundraising events such as Dandiya Night & Game Night where communities come together and help raise money for the Raider Fund.
  • PTSA also accepts matching donations from employers.
  • PTSA participates in eScrip and AmazonSmile.  These programs pay the PTSA directly based upon your qualifying purchases.

The PTSA also provides volunteers for school events (Freshman Parent Welcome, Schedule Pick up, Back to School Night, Diploma Distribution & any other event requested by the administration) and volunteers to plan, host events and implement programs.

Join us! It's fun! Everyone is invited!
