PTSO Membership Drive!

Make a difference at Potomac Senior High School Join the PTSO! Electronic payment is now available.    

Potomac Senior High School has a new Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO) and we are asking for your help to get this year off to a great start. Your donation, large or small, will be greatly appreciated and will allow us to begin developing programs that will enrich and improve our entire school and give your student the best academic experience possible.

We understand that not every fundraiser is the right fit for every family. This Pledge Drive offers families the choice to give what they can and allows 100% of your donation to go directly to the PTSO, rather than sharing a percentage of profits with a fundraising company. All donations of $10 and over will entitle you to a PTSO family membership. If you would like a free membership, please print out a copy of the Membership Form and send it in to school, indicate that you have already made an online payment.

Thank you for supporting our school!
