Scrip E-Gift Card Fundraising Program


Starting right now, you can earn fundraising dollars for Phelps Luck PTA by participating in our new Scrip program!

This easy-to-use program means you earn fundraising dollars by purchasing electronic gift cards to an extensive list of large businesses (Target, Amazon, Giant, Old Navy, Lowes, etc.) and a percentage of that sale is returned to the PTA as fundraising dollars.

 

This program is starting up just in time for holiday shopping and will be ongoing year round.

Visit https://shop.shopwithscrip.com/GetStarted and select “Join a Scrip Program” under the heading For Families.

Our Enrollment Code is BRWAATM9HK7P. Click HERE to view the flyer

Calling for the Watch Dogs

Our school has a fabulous volunteer program for dads. It is called WATCH D.O.G.S (Dads of Great Students).
The WATCH D.O.G.S. Program is an innovative program being used by schools across America, which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student's life.


Our goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears.Please contact watchdogs@phelpsluckpta.org for more information from Ms. McGraw (Asst. Principal) or Mr. Wacha (Watchdogs Coordinator).

School Counselors Support

This year, the counseling team is providing the opportunity for you to refer your student to talk to a school counselor.  If your student is experiencing something at home, struggling with school, or could just use an adult connection, please feel free to complete the form below.  We are here to support your student with anything that may be getting in the way of their learning and being the best falcon they can be.  Once the form is completed, counselors will connect with your student, as they are able.  Please feel free to contact Andrea Stremmel, School Counselor, at 410.313.6886 or andrea_stremmel@hcpss.org with any questions or concerns. https://forms.gle/5aN15LfPxvcfhQXu6
