The PTSA would like to help you, help your student participate in school activities. High school is a great time, with opportunities for developing/ practicing social skills and making new friends. There are a number of school activities throughout the year that may seem daunting to a student with special needs. The parent volunteers of PTSA can offer support, assistance or just keep a caring watchful eye out for your student. If you would like to become a parent volunteer to help in this process or you have a student who may benefit from this added support during school activities please contact Rita Devine at 801-363-3409 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
