Tools for Teachers.png

Throughout the year, we allocate funds to supply our dedicated staff with essential items they use regularly, and stock designated areas on campus for easy access. From reams of paper to Clorox disinfectant wipes, pens, pencils, tissue paper, and paper towels, we strive to meet the needs of our educators and staff.

Did we say paper?!!! Paper and Kleenex are among the most requested items, highlighting their significance in the daily operations of our classrooms and offices. Additionally, we provide a variety of snacks including Goldfish and Ritz crackers, granola bars, cookies, and snack gummies, ensuring that our school community stays nourished and energized throughout the day.

We appreciate our STHS staff. Welcoming back our dedicated teachers and staff after the summer break fills us with joy and excitement for the year ahead.

To kick off their return, we organize a delightful breakfast to show our appreciation for their hard work and dedication. Concurrently, we host our first Tools for Teachers event of the year, ensuring our educators have the necessary supplies to start the year strong.

Throughout the year, the ST PTO allocates funds to support various staff appreciation events, celebrating birthdays, team accomplishments, and special occasions.

These initiatives underscore our commitment to nurturing a supportive and uplifting environment for our valued teachers and staff, recognizing their invaluable contributions to our school community.

SCHOLARSHIPS Transparet.png

As part of our commitment to supporting student success beyond high school, we offer several scholarships to graduating seniors.

Seniors interested in applying participate by crafting essays based on topics chosen by the ST PTO, showcasing their skills and perspectives.

Following a thorough review process, scholarship winners are selected based on the quality and merit of their essays.

These scholarships provide valuable financial assistance to our students, helping to alleviate some of the expenses associated with college education.

It's a rewarding opportunity for our students to earn additional funds towards their academic pursuits and further highlights our dedication to their future success.

How do we, the ST PTO, provide all of this support for our teachers, staff and students?

Scholarships

The ST PTO relies on the generosity and support of our school community through fundraising efforts such as the Annual Giving Drive and the Annual Online Auction.
