PTS SERVING THE COMMUNITY
Community Service Committee
This committee provides an opportunity for parent volunteers to support PTS’s rich array of community service initiatives. In addition, the committee works closely with the school administration and the Director of Student Affairs, Susi Cetta, to support service projects throughout the school year.
Breakthrough Miami Committee
This committee provides assistance to Breakthrough Miami, a not-for- profit organization that partners with Palmer Trinity. Breakthrough Miami offers academic enrichment to motivated middle-school students from underserved communities. Committee responsibilities includes support for the on and off campus events, assistance in the classroom, and supplying snacks to the students of the program. The committee works under the guidance of Breakthrough Miami’s onsite Director and the Director of Student Affairs, Susi Cetta.
Annual Fund Committee
The Annual Fund allows our school to fulfill the academic plan budgeted for each school year. As with most independent schools, the tuition alone at Palmer Trinity School does not cover the cost of educating our children, and the Annual Fund provides the resources needed to meet our budget so that Palmer Trinity can continue to provide the highest level of academics, equip classrooms with technology and innovative educational aids, and hire and retain the best teachers. If you would like to help spread the word about the importance of the Annual Fund, you can become a volunteer or you can become an Annual Fund Ambassador and join a group of parents who want to make a difference.
Sandy Golf and Tennis Tournament Committee
Sandy Block was a former PTS parent and an active Board member. Aspiring to honor his father’s memory, Chris Block ’96 founded this tournament. This day-long fundraising event includes golf and tennis tournaments and a reception. The committee will work closely with the school’s Development team to organize, plan, and orchestrate all the activities. This day-long fundraising event includes golf and tennis tournaments, dinner and auction. Proceeds are allocated to the Sandy Block Financial Aid Award, which allows outstanding students to attend Palmer Trinity School on a need-based scholarship.
