Members of the Potomac HS PTSO Potomac High School recently held their first Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO) Heritage Night.

"On behalf of our Potomac teachers, students, and PTSO, we are thrilled to offer Heritage Night," said Brandon Boles, principal of Potomac High. "In addition to providing our Spanish-speaking families with important school resources and information to position students for success, we also see the importance of making sure that all of our families feel welcomed at Potomac High."

PTSO members were introduced to the school's resources such as counselors, the school social worker, the school psychologist, and the New Horizons therapist. In addition, PTSO members were encouraged to stay in touch with the school using both parent/teacher conferences and ParentVUE, a new app for parents to look up student information such as grades and attendance.

PTSO members were also informed that they are supported with Spanish-speaking staff members when their services are needed.

Lastly, school staff encouraged the use of counselors for information on opportunities after graduation. These may include information about scholarships, grants, college applications, and workforce opportunities.

"We look forward to finding even more opportunities, such as Heritage Night, to involve all of our parents and community in our school's goal of excellence in relationships, rigor, and results," Boles said.
