Sprayberry High School PTSA

UPDATE: PTSA Senior Scholarship

Parents and Students,

We hope this finds you all healthy and well. This is a challenging time for all of us. Some may be wondering about our plans related to our senior scholarships. Please note the following and reach out with any questions:

1. The PTSA will award $10,000 in senior scholarships this school year in the form of ten $1000 scholarships.
2. Seniors MUST be an SHS PTSA member to apply. It costs $5 and if they are not a member they can complete the membership form at our website. If you are not sure if you are a member, email us and we’ll let you know.
3. You can find the scholarship application SHSPTSAScholarshipForm2020
4. Given the school closure, we will accept applications via email beginning immediately. Send all completed scholarship applications to president@sprayberryptsa.org. Submit your application as a Word document or PDF. Make sure to include the application form with your essay and email both to us.
5. The due date extended Wednesday, April 1st. All entries must be emailed by 11pm.
6. The entries will be reviewed by our outside committee during Spring Break. Scholarship winners will be contacted in April via phone (please make sure your phone number is on your application form).
7. We typically hand out the checks during SHS Honors and Awards Night in late April/early May but we will provide more information as the school closure situation develops.

We appreciate your support,

SHS PTSA Board

Wow! Our feet are tired but our hearts are full! Thank you to the Sprayberry community for supporting our 37th Annual Arts and Crafts show this past weekend. We had terrific crowds and appreciate your patronage so much. A HUGE thank you to our wonderful crafters for their support of our show year after year. We also owe a debt of gratitude to our volunteers: parents, students, grandparents, staff all came together to pull off this huge undertaking. We couldn’t do it without you! This event helps fund student scholarships, teacher grants, and events throughout our school. Our sincerest thank yous for your support as it directly impacts our ability to fund these wonderful programs.

2019-2020 PTA Membership Cards

Yellow Jacket Families,

For those that have already joined PTSA you have probably noticed you did not receive a membership card in your SHS packet. That was not an oversight. In years past we have been provided paper membership cards through East Cobb Council of PTAs (ECCC) in conjunction with District 9 PTA and Georgia PTA. This year the entities that govern our PTA elected to go paperless and that led to several changes we wanted to inform you of here:

– In the past our PTA had to submit monthly membership numbers to GA PTA and pay dues based on that membership ($3.75/member). We did that via paper form and snail mail. This year, paper/by mail is not an option and we have to upload our membership numbers into a service called MemberHub online.

– Once your info (name, email address, type of membership – we share nothing else) has been uploaded you will receive an email from MemberHub with a receipt for the $3.75 (the portion of your $5 membership that goes towards GA PTA dues).

– You will find a link in that email where you can go and print your PTA Membership card. While that card is not needed to access PTA programs and benefits at SHS it may be needed to access ECCC PTA member discounts which can be found HERE.

– If your student or spouse joined SHS PTSA but their email address was not provided you will not receive a receipt or a link for their membership card. This is because MemberHub has a flaw – it will only allow us to use an email once so we can’t assign the same email to two (or more) parents or students. You can email us if you’d like to add their email so they can print their own card. Again, the PTA Membership cards are not needed to access SHS PTSA benefits, only if you want to use the member discounts linked here and above.

– Please note: Seniors who joined SHS PTSA in order to apply for our scholarship in the spring do not need a membership card to apply. Seniors, make sure to join though because we award $10,000 in scholarships. Go HERE to join.

– If you did not get a chance to join our organization at NewBeez or Open House, there’s still time! You can join online HERE or print out our paper formand turn it into the front office with your payment.

We appreciate your support of PTSA! Want to know what we do with the funds raised through membership and at our annual Arts & Crafts Show? Go HERE to learn more about the over $20,000 we provided in support to students, families, teachers, and events around our school during 2018-2019 SY.

Thank you for your support,
SHS PTSA Executive Committee
