Every Staples family and staff member is encouraged to become a member of the SHS PTA. It is your forum for sharing concerns and suggestions and is your key source for information. Additionally, our annual membership enables us to fund over 40 events and programs each year and “additional donations” help fully fund the teacher appreciation luncheons and Wrecker mini-grants. PTA membership also gives you access to the online directory. Parents - click here to join (if asked for a code, enter “westport”/see attached directions if needed). Staff link coming soon.
