The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time. I am honored to be SMHS-PTSA President and looking forward to a fabulous year. I grew up in San Marino and attended San Marino High myself. My husband Vincent and I feel incredibly lucky to live in this community. It is hard to believe that our son Matthew will be part of the 2017 graduating class!! Our son, Thomas is a Junior and daughter Mary Jane is in 8th grade.
PTSA is wonderful way to stay informed and get involved. I invite you to a PTSA meeting on the third Wednesday of the month (except October, December, and February) at 8:30 a.m. in the College and Career Center. All are welcome to attend and learn what is happening at SMHS and how you can get involved. You can learn about ASB, performing arts, sports, and hear from our knowledgeable Principal, Mary Johnson, who will give you updates and keep you informed on important issues at school and will also keep you abreast of what is going on around the community.
The PTSA calendar, including meetings scheduled, is posted on the San Marino High School website. Please CLICK HERE for the calendar. We also have an updated SMUSD app, so please download it today from your app store.
There are many other ways to support San Marino High. Yee-Haw! Our first PTSA event is our Parent Party, "Stage Coach San Marino" on Saturday, September 10. Or swing the sticks at the annual Golf Tournament at San Gabriel Country Club on April 24. The tradition continues with Grad Night, this year's theme being . . . Monopoly!! Come join the Grad Night painting parties on Wednesday and Saturdays starting in January.
I look forward to an exciting year.
Thank you, and GO TITANS!
