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.
