Thrift Shop Fashion Show, K-2 Art Show, Bake Sale and Artisan’s Boutique!



Join us on December 12th at 6pm for the Annual PTA Thrift Shop Fashion Show, K-2 Art Show, Bake Sale and Artisan’s boutique!! This is an opportunity to EARN thrift shop hours for your favorite teacher while also having fun with the PHS community, checking out our amazing K-2 Art, and shopping the fantastic work of many local artists.




The theme this year is...Tropical Holiday! We are dreaming of warmer weather and think our models can score some fabulous tropical gems at the PTA Thrift Shop! Can’t find clothes? Accessories and beach toys are always a fun accessory for the runway!




Click here to sign up to model...we love BOTH students AND teachers to strut their stuff on the runway!!


Between now and December 10th, please go by the Thrift Shop and pick out an outfit, part of an outfit or an accessory for the runway. Have fun with it, there are no bad outfits! You could coordinate your shopping with a thrift shop work session so that you can shop and earn money for your favorite teacher all in one trip!! Don't forget, if you attend a work session, you can shop for 50% off!! Click here for upcoming work sessions in December!
