Miami Beach Senior High School


Greeting to parents, teachers and students at Miami Beach Senior High School.

It is a distinct pleasure for me to serve as your PTSA President for the school year 2016-2017.  We are all connected to Beach High through our children and each of us wants what is best for each child.

My daughter is entering 12th grade and I think that I speak for the entire PTSA when I express gratefulness to teachers, administrators and staff for training and taking care of our children while they grow and learn during their Hi-Tide years. We especially appreciate the teachers and staff who make it possible for students to participate in a wealth of extracurricular activities which helps to build bonds for a lifetime.

The PTSA is here to support and serve the entire student body. We are accessible and we welcome parents, students and teachers to both our executive board meetings every 2nd Tuesday of the month as well as to quarterly general body meetings. Your ideas and suggestions are welcomed. We always need volunteers for the work we do for our school and your membership is the first step in that process. PTSA membership really does have its privileges and it starts with our award winning comprehensive newsletter. This publication is packed with school events, including dates, times, locations as well as test deadlines that will keep you informed and on task all throughout the year. Additionally, through the newsletter you will keep abreast of what is going on all around the campus. Staying informed is priceless.

In my opinion, high school is not a time to let go of our children (as they nudge us away) but a time to help them when they need it the most. They are all preparing for "real life" after high school whether that means college, work, or the military.

I look forward to meeting both new and returning parents. If you have any questions feel free to give me a call at 305-494-0872.

I look forward to working with you this year.
