POGS

POGS is the acronym for Parents of Graduating Seniors. We are an organized group of parent volunteers that will plan rewards for the IHS 2019 graduating class. Some of the events and items that we help coordinate are:

  • Sell senior passes
  • Raise money through parental and corporate sponsorships and donations
  • Select and implement a monthly reward with the school’s administration approval
  • Graduation Breakfast

We do NOT handle: Prom, Graduation or Baccalaureate.

Some of the monthly activities we have planned include providing seniors with luncheons purchased from area restaurants, cookouts, shirts, and lanyards.

Important Information

PTSO meetings take place on the second Monday of each month from 6:00pm – 8:00pm in the IHS library. Please join us!
