Donate and Join! PTSA, Booster Club, Music Boosters & Library

To all South Pasadena High School Families,

We are fortunate to live in a community with excellent schools. Our schools are excellent, in part, due to strong community support. Volunteer, non-profit organizations such as the PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association), the Booster Club, and Music Boosters rely on community donations of time and dollars to support our kids.

Since registration is online this year, please visit the “Donate and Join” page to review digital options to join and contribute.

Thank you, South Pas Families!

Congrats to the Seniors

Dear SPHS Class of 2020,

On behalf of the SPHS PTSA, we would like to congratulate you in a big way! Your non-traditional graduation ceremony and day does not take away from how proud we are of you.

We have come together as a community to celebrate you with this banner. It is proudly displayed on Fair Oaks Avenue at Grevelia Street for the entire city to see and salute you as well.


2020 Honorary Service Award Recipients

In this time when reality seems more like a movie and life has changed for us all, the SPHS PTSA is moving forward with a new Honorary Service Awards celebration.  A handful of people have made videos for this year’s recipients. Each and every one of them has gone above and beyond their title description and given all they could to our schools for many years.  I would also like to say a big thank you to the SPHS PTSA and Janet Anderson for keeping the PTSA on track and finishing the year strong. 
Congratulations to all the 2020 Honorary Service Award recipients. 
Kathleen Michel – Honorary Service Awards Chair
