Announcements

  • Each year the Paschal PTA hosts an all-night drug free/alcohol free, party for Seniors the night of graduation.  Students ride FWISD busses from graduation to Main Event, where they are treated to a night full of entertainment, food, prizes, and fun, celebrating with their classmates!  It is a great party and a perfect way to close out the year with friends!
     
    In the past, parents of Seniors shouldered much of the fundraising responsibility for this event.  In the effort to simplify PTA's fundraising, the majority of Senior Celebration expenses are now rolled into the WAP campaign, going on now. 
     
    The budget for Senior Celebration has a fixed and a variable portion, so that your donation to WAP will directly support this event for our Seniors in one of two ways:
     

    1.     Donations to WAP fund the PTA general operating budget, including the fixed costs of Senior Celebration.  Fixed costs include renting Main Event (approx. $19,000) and transportation to and from the event (approx. $800).

     

    2.     An additional percentage of WAP's overall fundraising income will be given to Senior Celebration to provide for variable expenses.  This is the "icing on the cake" stuff like awesome prizes and entertainment, as well as underwriting to keep the ticket price low so that as many as possible can attend.  SO, the closer PTA gets to the $100,000 fundraising goal, the more prizes and more fun for our Seniors!

     
    WE NEED YOUR HELP:
     
    • PLEASE DONATE TO WAP!  Click here to make an online donation TODAY.
    • The Senior Celebration committee is already at work to ensure that no detail is overlooked.  Want to join the planning committee?  Contact Committee Chairs:  Elizabeth Thomas ethomas@andersonriddle.com and Cynthia Etheridge  cinderking925@yahoo.com  
    • Do you have connections to a business that can donate raffle prizes?  Typically these include gift cards (restaurants, Target, Container Store, Bed, Bath and Beyond), dorm room/apartment items (refrigerators, coffee makers, TVs), as well as bicycles, electronics, etc.   Please contact Sarah Tempel sftempel@me.com to donate to the raffle.
    • Parents attend the event as chaperones, so in the Spring we'll need you to sign up as a volunteer.  Ashley Parsons and Anne Darr will be scheduling volunteer shifts in the spring.  Plan now to be a part of this fun night!

  • For the next two weeks if purchased through jostensyearbooks.com the yearbook will be on sale for the lowest price of the year: $65. Also, if you buy a line of personalization for $6.50 you will be able to order 4 icons and additional items with a total value of $30 for free.
     
    In order to appear in the Senior portrait section of the yearbook, Seniors MUST have their photograph taken at Glamourcraft Photography Studios.
    There are two opportunities for senior photos in the yearbook.  The first is the senior section of the yearbook.  This photo MUST be taken at Glamourcraft.  
     
    The second opportunity is a Senior Ad.  These are placed at the back of the yearbook and are offered in different sizes and can include a quote or well wishes to the graduate.  Details for both are listed below, please note the October 27 deadline for both yearbook photos and senior ads.
     
    Parents of Seniors, your student MUST go to Glamourcraft at 7375 S. Hulen St., Fort Worth, TX 76133 by October 27th in order to have their picture appear on the portrait page(s) of the Yearbook (contact Gayle Herbert at (817) 923-9901 or (817) 923-4865 to set up an appointment or visit online at:  glamourcraft.com and select Paschal HS from the pulldown menu at the top of the homepage. You do not have to purchase a picture package, but due to contractual obligations your student does need to get their picture taken there to show up on the portrait page; I believe there is a $5 "sitting" fee.
     
    As a separate issue, if you choose to purchase and build your Senior ad at jostensyearbooks.com you need to also do so by October 27th.   
     
    Visit the Jostens website, create a user account (user accounts are free) and follow the steps to create your ad. 
     
    If you plan to build your own ad and submit it to me (Brandon Wheatley: brandon.wheatley@fwisd.org) you still need to purchase the ad space on jostensyearbooks.com by October 27th. When it take you through the building portion you MUST include a recent picture of your student and type their full name in the text portions, doing so will ensure proper ad placement when I receive it.
     
    Full Page =  (8.5 inches wide x 11 inches tall)          $325
    ½ Page =      (8.5 inches wide x 5.5 inches tall)        $195
    ¼ Page =      (4.25 inches wide x 5.5 inches tall)      $120
    1/8 Page =   (4.25 inches wide x 2.75 inches tall)   $70
     
    All images need to have a resolution of 300 d.p.i.

  • College Visits begin this week at Paschal.  Students can refer to the Paschal Calendar to see which schools will be on campus:
     
     
    There is a sign-up list in the counseling office.  The list is updated daily with the colleges and universities that have committed to a date.  If a student signs up, they will receive a pass to be dismissed to meet with the admissions personnel at the appropriate time.  
     
    Paschal will make announcements on the PA system at least 1 week ahead of the visit and have dates posted on the counseling department college bulletin board in the main front hallway of the counseling office.
     
    Paschal requires students to sign up in the counseling office at least one day prior to the date of the visit.
