Please Support the Trumbull High PTSA:
It's not too late to complete and return the PTSA membership form. Your membership supports many valuable programs and initiatives such as the Practice SAT/ACT, Fashion Show, Scholarships, Mini-grants, Post Prom, Staff Appreciation events and ACE Foundation, among others. Members will also be included in the PTSA email notification system where you will receive important information regarding both PTSA and THS student/parent events.
At Trumbull High School, please note we are a PTSA – the “S” stands for students. Not only is being a part of the PTSA a valuable addition to a student’s resume, it also allows for our students to voice their ideas, opinions and concerns regarding the high school and the PTSA.
Scheduled meetings for the remainder of the year are: January 14th, March 11th, and May 13th. All meetings will be held in the Senior Lounge, 7:00-8:30 pm.
Parents, students and community members are all welcome! Please join us to hear about the events we have planned this year for our students and parents, participate in discussions regarding curriculum, the ongoing renovation, and budget ramifications, hear from various guest speakers, and more.
