Chaperones Needed: PSU Freshman Field Trips

Help our Freshman Academies tour PSU!

Portland State University Logo

You will help a teacher by joining them at Franklin for the bus trip to Portland State and then lead part of the class in a self-guided tour. We need at least one chaperone per trip. Two would be a bonus.

If you are familiar with PSU, that is a plus! If not, that is fine. The program coordinator, Pam Garrett, will share the info for the self-guided tour before the event.

For more information on dates and times, please visit our sign up page:

Why join PTSA? Your FHS PTSA helps support Franklin High School as well as the broader Portland and Oregon PTA community in many ways. Being a PTSA member allows you to vote at FHS PTSA General Membership meetings on decisions such as the PTSA budget, PTSA Board membership, and PTSA Grant allocations. The Franklin High School PTSA is supported by Portland PTA and the broader Oregon PTA and your membership dollars help fund that support.
