How Can You Help?

  • Join and participate in the PTSO. Becoming a member means you support our organization and believe in what we’re doing. We ask for no further obligation unless you want to be more involved.
  • Volunteer your time and skills. Parent volunteers are critical to the many activities we support outside the classroom. An hour can be a big help to our organization and the school, and we have positions and tasks to fit all schedules and interests.
  • Volunteer to serve in a committee chair or co-chair position.
  • Support our many fund raising activities, such as, Stallion Walk-of-Fame, SAT/ACT practice tests and Boot Camps, shopping at Amazon.com via our PTSO website, Giant A+ Rewards, and the annual Golf Tournament.
  • Donate money to fund requests from teachers, school programs and clubs.
  • There are several ways you can stay informed of PTSO information:
    • Visit our website frequently,
    • “Like” us on Facebook (South County High School);
