Greetings,

On behalf of Panthers Inc PTSA, I welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year at Plano East Senior High.

Plano East Senior High was established in 1981, as well as Panthers Inc, a unique parent organization designed to meet the challenge of involving parents in a two-year senior high campus. We strive to promote cooperation between activities and clubs by encouraging and supporting all school activities and meeting the many volunteer needs of the teachers and staff.  

In the spring of 2005, our parents voted to become a part of the Texas PTA. This partnership helps us to continue building our strong parent, teacher and student bonds as we all strive for excellence in academics, athletics, and fine arts.  Each booster club is represented in Panthers Inc PTSA.

We encourage all parents to get involved by volunteering, joining Panthers Inc PTSA, and attending the monthly PTSA meetings. Membership dues are $18.00 for the first parent member, $10.00 for each additional family member, and $10.00 for each Plano East staff member or student.  Please encourage your child(ren) to join. Many colleges and scholarship groups recognize PTSA as a student group. 

SENIORS: watch for the $1,000 Texas PTA scholarship in January.  Students must be a Plano East PTSA member to apply.

Panthers Inc PTSA supports the students, staff, and parents of Plano East in a variety of ways:   

  • Senior Spectacular! It is one of our largest activities where we cater a full lunch to our graduating seniors. At past events, Panthers Inc PTSA has provided scholarships and prizes to Plano East seniors in attendance.
  • We provide volunteers to support the faculty and staff during schedule pick up, College Night, Camp Panther and on a weekly basis in the copy room.
  • Volunteers make school events like Homecoming and Prom dances successful by chaperoning and providing the all-important coat check table.
  • Panthers Inc PTSA sponsors teacher and staff appreciation events throughout the year.
  • Panthers Inc PTSA also works in conjunction with all the Plano East booster clubs to sell advertising and produce the programs that are sold at football games, basketball games and other sports events throughout the year.

Finally, watch for informational programs during the school year about topics and issues facing teens and parents today.

Your membership in the Panthers Inc., PTSA is greatly desired and imperative to our continued success. With your support, we can continue to offer programs to the students of Plano East.

Sincerely,

Julie Richard, President
