The Palatine High School Pirate Booster Club exists to support and enrich the high school experience for our children while they attend Palatine High School. The ways in which we accomplish this task, are many. Through various fundraising efforts each year, we financially contribute to a wide variety of academic and extra-curricular programs and services that directly impact all students. We also support those programs and services by volunteering at various events throughout the school year. In addition, we award scholarships to graduating seniors each year who personify our mission to strengthen the Palatine High School community, as well as the Palatine community at-large. So consider joining us, whether it is through volunteering your time or graciously accepted monetary donations. Help us to accomplish our main goal-to positively affect each student’s experience at Palatine High School.  Who are the Boosters Video

    Free ECG Screening for PHS Students



    The Young Hearts for Life (YH4L) Cardiac Screening Program identifies high school and college students at risk for sudden cardiac death. Each week sudden cardiac death claims the lives of more than 60 young adults in the United States.

    YH4L and Palatine High School will be providing PHS students with the opportunity for this free screening (with parental/guardian consent) on February 23, 2017. Additional information and instruction on how to sign your student up for this free screening will be forthcoming from the high school administration. BUT…

    To make this event successful, the Pirate Boosters is looking for parent/community volunteers. We need over 120 parent/community volunteers to help provide ECG screenings to the students at Palatine High School on February 23, 2017 (to be held throughout the school day).

    NOTE: All volunteers must attend one of the training sessions held on February 22 (two evening sessions offered: 5:00pm and 7:30pm).

    If you are interested in volunteering, sign up is available now online:
