Independence Parent Teacher Student Organization

The PTSO is an organization of Parents, Teachers and Students working toward a common goal of enriching the quality of education at Independence High School. Our board is formed each April for the upcoming school year of parents dedicated to being a big part of the educational system and student life at Indy. We WELCOME all parent involvement and encourage you to plug yourself into one of our areas of service.

POGS is the acronym for Parents of Graduating Seniors. We are an organized group of parent volunteers that will plan some extra pampering for the IHS 2020 graduating class. Some of the events and items that we help coordinate are:
  • Monthly lunches catered by local restaurants
  • 2020 POGS t-shirt
  • Graduation breakfast
