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

  • Farewell from this year’s PHS Booster Co-Presidents


    Good morning,

    While it is bittersweet, it is with great pride that we end our term as Co-Presidents of the PHS Pirate Booster Club.  We have enjoyed this last year assisting our Board of Directors, Administrators, Faculty, Staff, Students and the PHS community.  While the title of Co-President denotes a leadership position our greatest pleasure came from working with others to serve the PHS community.  It’s been our privilege to serve the students, faculty, staff and PHS community in an effort to enrich the PHS experience for all.  This has been a banner year for the PHS Pirate Booster Club, as we were able to donate $113,000.00 to the PHS community.  While we are proud of the PHS Pirate Boosters and their efforts we remain humbled to serve.

    We are so pleased to have a wonderful team in place to serve on the PHS Pirate Booster Club Executive Committee for 2016-2017.  Please join us in welcoming the incoming Executive Committee:

    • President, John Helminski, comes with years of experience as a band representative as well as this last year’s Vice President.
    • Vice President, Jean Choi, has Co-Chaired our Membership committee and has Co-Chaired our very successful Craft Fair Event.
    • Treasurer, Susan Limberg, is back for a second term serving with excellent detail and competency.
    • Secretary, Chris Daily, is returning, who we all have appreciated her timely reminders and detailed reports.

    We made sure that you are being held in good stead with an excellent Executive Committee which will provide quality leadership.  Your new President, John Helminski will be reaching out with the names of your 2016-2017 Board of Directors soon.

    Lastly, we would like to thank Gary Steiger, Mike Alther, Jerry Dobbs, Cindy Rogers, Shannon Szukala, Sonnya Lozana, the faculty, staff, students, parents, volunteers, PHS Booster Club Board of Directors and PHS Booster Club Executive Committee for all their hard work.

    We are not saying goodbye, because as our motto states, “Once A Pirate, Always Family”.  We’re sure you will see us both volunteering and taking part in cheering our Pirates on to victory.

    Sincerely and respectfully,

    Alissa DePue                                Matt Trembley
