    PTSA/Volunteer News

    Summer Volunteer Opportunities: We will need parent helpers during the summer! We will for sure need volunteers during Registration, Aug. 14-17. We will also have move-in jobs (filling display cases, hanging items on walls). And, of course, there will be back to school packet stuffing. Dates for those last two are TBD so stay tuned!

     

    Needed: Plant Sale Coordinator: Do you love plants? For many years FHS PTSA has hosted a plant sale each spring. Our long-time coordinator has finally “graduated” and we would love to find someone, or multiple someones, to own this small but well-loved fundraiser. We have folks willing to provide some of the plants, but we need someone to advertise, find volunteers, and generally coordinate the event. If you’re interested, please contact the FHS PTSA volunteer coordinators at vipsfhsptsa@gmail.com. Thanks!

     

    Library

    Clearing Library Charges & School Pay: If your child has anything (books or charges) on their record you will be receiving a notice in the “welcome back” envelope sent to your home mid-summer. Families will be able to pay library charges for lost books through “School Pay” (online payment system) starting in August. However, please make sure your child does not actually have the book before you pay!

     

    Libby is here! Overdrive (the audio and ebook program through Multnomah County Library) is switching apps. Download Libby today. Come see Sunny for help.

     

    Sync makes free audiobooks available to teens this summer!  Each week until August 16, teens can download 2 free titles (each 2 titles are only available for a week to download but when downloaded, the teens can keep them forever).

     

    Summer Reading Double Winners: MCL summer reading games cards will be available next week in the library and from English teachers. Play to win big prizes and bring game card back to the FHS library in August to get a prize and a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Powell’s.

     

    Underclass Check In: Scheduled check in time is over, but we still want students to drop in during finals week to clear their record. If students still have books or charges on their record we ask that they be cleared by 6/15 to avoid summer notices, to allow us to have an accurate inventory for 2017-18, to avoid long lines at registration or to avoid delays during Fall textbook check out. Underclass Instructions are HERE. You can access student’s library/textbook record by logging into our library catalog online (click on Catalog on the right side of the FHS Toolbox or on the very easy to use APP. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at sjchilds@pps.net or mchamber@pps.net  or call the Library. 

    Seniors- Save Your Stuff!  apps4pps Drive Transfer: As the end of the school year approaches, graduating seniors and those transferring out of PPS should move their apps4pps content to a personal account. Follow the directions here for transferring your stuff.
