Timpanogos High School’s Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA) is a nonprofit organization run by volunteers to provide valuable support, services, and programs to the THS community. Since 1996, the PTSA has worked to promote the welfare of our students in our homes, school, and community.
Research shows that parents need to be partners in their children’s education, from pre-school right up through the high school years. At Timpanogos High School, the PTSA is working to serve as that essential link to keep you in touch and informed about our school.
Timpanogos High School’s PTSA is a local unit of the National PTA and Utah PTA.

Golden Apple: Utah PTA sponsored program honoring outstanding educators in Utah. Each year the THS PTSA chooses a teacher, or staff member, for this recognition. Here in Orem the recipients are honored at a luncheon held in April.
Elected officers and appointed Executive Board members provide leadership for the PTSA. The PTSA Nominating Committee presents a slate of officers to the PTSA in April and an election is held at the PTSA meeting in May. Officers may serve three consecutive one-year terms. The PTSA president appoints committee chairs and other Board members. Currently, PTSA officers include the president, Legislative vice president, Leadership vice president, secretary, and treasurer.
The PTSA meets on the second Tuesday of the month. Meetings are held in the THS Conference Room at 10:30 a.m. Meetings are informal but structured, and generally last about one hour. All meetings are open to the general membership and we welcome everyone in the THS community to attend.

Volunteer for PTSA
Your time and energy are essential to the success of PTSA and THS. Plus, volunteering is a great way to meet other parents and get more involved in our school. Volunteers serve on committees and advisory groups, provide hospitality for school functions, get the PTSA newsletter out, organize special programs, chaperon student events, and more. Volunteers are always needed for long-term, short-term, and one-time-only projects. To make it easy to find volunteer opportunities that fit your interests and schedule, we send out regular emails with news of volunteer needs. Remember, every PTSA volunteer is a busy parent, just like you.
The PTSA relies on memberships and fundraising to fund its many
programs and projects throughout the year. Our “No-Frills Fundraising”
eliminates the fuss. Send a check, take a tax deduction, and enjoy the
knowledge that you’re supporting many special activities that benefit
our students, teachers, and school. They deserve it!
