FOSH is the Parent-Teacher Organization at SHS. FOSH provides a vehicle for active involvement of parents, faculty and students in promoting school spirit and a positive educational, athletic and social environment. Additionally, FOSH encourages cooperation among parents, faculty and students in carrying out their responsibilities as well as improving communication between home and school and promoting community involvement and support of the school.
All parents, guardians, faculty members (teachers and staff), students, and alumni of Stamford High School are members. In addition to an executive committee, standing committees have been established to carry out the activities and purposes of the organization. Anyone wishing to participate is encouraged to do so.
There are general meetings held during the year providing factual updates on school conditions and subjects of interest. The dates of these meetings are listed in this calendar.
Voluntary tax-deductible contributions to FOSH enable funding for supporting student activities, scholarships for leadership development, college scholarships, participation in community organizations such as Parent-Teacher Council, school beautification efforts, teacher appreciation efforts, newsletters, and miscellaneous requests that would otherwise be unmet.
These contributions also provide for an annual, safe Drug and Alcohol Free After-Prom Party for seniors and their guests. The perennially popular Fashion Show, in which juniors and seniors model and dance will, with the support of volunteers, continue to be a part of SHS tradition.
FOSH relies on the generous help of countless parents and is only limited by the number of volunteers who are willing to be involved. FOSH welcomes comments and suggestions.
