  • PTSA Pollard's PTSA is looking for a few good parents to volunteer for next year. Although they have an amazing team, most of the parents are moving on to Northwood. Positions available include: PTSA President, Vice President, Secretary, Fundraising Chair, Membership Chair, Spirit Wear Chair, and Box Top Chair. The jobs vary in time commitment and assignment. Please contact Wendy Bengivenni at wendyaspie@gmail.com with questions. We all know our schools need extra help and extra funding, and this doesn't happen without parents getting involved. Thank you in advance!

  • pollard Boosters Athletic Gap is a way for your kids to stay at school (supervised) until game time on days when Pollard has home games.  (READ: one less trip for you to make shuttling your kid!) The cost for Athletic GAP is $2, and does not include the admission price to the game. Softball and soccer games are free admission. Basketball games cost $3. The Boosters Club sells concessions at games, so your child may want to bring extra money for that as well.
