News, Forms and Fundraisers

Welcome back to another year at Panas! The PPC invites you to continue your membership for 2018–2019. The PPC is WPHS’s lighter version of the PTA; rather than paying into the national PTA, every dollar raised goes directly to our own students. The PPC runs on donations from our parents and the community. Did you know that if even half of the families within the WPHS community donated the membership fee, we would be able to cover everything we fund for Panas students?

The majority of our funds go to classroom mini-grants and senior scholarships. Last year we provided the WPHS scholarship committee 22 scholarships for graduating seniors, and we gave the teaching staff over $400 in classroom mini-grants to purchase learning software and additional supplies to support our students. We also host the Staff Appreciation Luncheon, Student-of-the-Quarter Breakfasts, and provide refreshments at various school events. If you haven’t renewed your membership, just click on this linkat the top of the page to find the membership form.

Our first meeting on September 25th featured Ms. Reva Druskin and Olive, our therapy dog. Ms. Danielle Gamar was on hand to give us a presentation on vaping, as well as Mr. Spero who brought us an update on district and school news. Our next meeting is scheduled for December 11th and we hope to see you there! We will feature speakers with relevant topics to parents of teens, and offer some light refreshments. Come to Bowling Night on October 27th at Cortlandt Lanes, a fun evening with raffles and prizes! All fundraising proceeds go directly to our WPHS students. Contact us at ppc@lakelandschools.org for more information.
