• Ponax Parents Direct Donation Campaign

    Dear Panther Families,

    The Massaponax High School PTSO is thrilled to begin another school year working with our school parents, teachers, staff, administration, and students.  The Massaponax PTSO is asking for your help!  We are launching a Ponax Parents Direct Donation Campaign.  Our goal is to continue to provide the classroom tools, education materials and/or equipment to be used at MHS.

     Through your generous contributions last year, the PTSO was able to support the following needs and requests: 

    • Art Dept. had (10) lighted art stands built for the classroom.
    • Athletics received funding through 50/50 Raffle ticket sales.
    • Concession sales helped support Basketball, Soccer and Wrestling.
    • MHS DECA Chapter received funds for their 2018 International Conference in Orlando, FL.
    • MHS Panther Pals received support for their 2018 Panther Pals Prom.
    • MHS PTSO Scholarship* ($750 each) for (2) Graduating Seniors / [*Based on application & essay submissions.]
    • MHS Special Games annual event for ALL Spotsylvania County schools.
    • Science Dept. received funds in support of a guppy breeding program.
    • Drapes and bunting to be used for MHS school events.
    • Teacher/Staff Appreciation events throughout the year. 

    This year the PTSO has provided nearly $1000 in grants to 12 teachers to fund the following items: 

    • English classroom library of books featuring minority authors to encourage reading for all students.
    • Dry erase board for the weight room to help with physical education exercises and instruction.
    • Math classrooms to share individual dry erase boards, erasers, and markers for students to practice lessons.
    • Funds for the library to host a Murder Mystery event for all students.
    • Tools to assist the school’s reading specialist for the MHS Read 180 classroom.
    • Spanish III & IV classroom set of (20) Spanish – English dictionaries for students. 

    This campaign allows 100% of your contribution to go directly to the PTSO to support our endeavors.  The PTSO is a non-profit organization, so 100% of your contribution may be tax-deductible. There is NO MINIMUM donation.  All donations are greatly appreciated! Checks can be made payable to Massaponax High School PTSO.
