Paraclete Parent Organization – PPO
A big welcome to the class of 2023 parents!!
The Paraclete Parent Organization (PPO) is comprised of parents who have a student enrolled at Paraclete High School. Our main function is to raise money to support the educational programs and campus at Paraclete. The PPO Board meets once a month throughout the school year. You are invited to attend our meetings so you can get involved (and work off your service hours). We meet the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm in the library. Check the school calendar for more info!
Vegas Night is intended to raise money for Paraclete, as well as to provide an enjoyable evening for the Paraclete community, family, and friends. Casino games, music, food, raffle prizes, silent auctions, and more, ensure a fun and exciting evening for all who attend!
Last year’s 2018 Vegas Night was a great success!! We had well over 300 people in attendance, and raised money to help purchase much needed items for the school and students. We were able to purchase Apple TV’s for each classroom, a new set of chairs for the chapel and a water/filler station and much more!
Vegas Night 2019 will be on October 19th. Our committee chairs are already busy planning to ensure another successful event. However, we will need the support of wonderful volunteers and donors to pull it off again this year. For more information and to get involved with one of our committees attend one, or all, of the upcoming parent meetings which are scheduled on:
- September 5th
- September 17th
- October 1st
- October 17th (Dealer Training)
All meetings are in the library and start at 7pm.
We need your help to make Vegas Night a success again this year and look forward to working with you!!
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
On April 2, the board was able to grant $20,000 worth of “wish list” requests to benefit the students, staff, and school. It was all made possible by the PPO’s successful annual Vegas Night Fundraiser last October.
Here are some of the exciting items we approved:
- Science Department
- Lab Coats
- Banners for STEM Competitions
- Various parts, tools, and Registration Fees for Competitions
- 2 Water bottle filler/water fountains
- New Bell relay controller and software
- Art Department, Drama, Yearbook, & ASB
- Color All in One Printer with Replacement Toner Cartridges
- Bluetooth Speaker systems
- Apple TV in each classroom
- New set of chairs
Thank you, again, to all of our Vegas Night volunteers who helped make this possible.
