Welcome students, staff and parents!

 We are so blessed at South Oldham to have so many parents who are willing to give of their time and money to better the entire school, not just their own child. The students and staff benefit greatly from the collective hours put into school by the parents.

As we look ahead to the future of SOHS, we need to keep in mind that it “takes a village” to provide a quality education for each student and that the school relies heavily upon the parents to be part of that “village.” Fortunately for South, we are composed of a group of hard-working, flexible parents who work hand-in-hand with the school personnel to help educate their sons and daughters.

SOHS PTSA is constantly working to bridge the gap between parents and students during the high school years. Our committees consist of PTSA Membership, Kroger Cards, Hospitality, Art Show, Drug/Alcohol Awareness, College/Career Night, Community Council, Reflections, SBDM Council, School Beautification and Landscaping.

Each committee works with the staff, students, and parents to build awareness, knowledge, and to help educate.

South Oldham High School PTSA is always looking for volunteers and ways to raise money to put back into our school. Our main sources of income are Membership and Kroger cards. Our goal is to have as close to 100% parent membership for PTSA as well as SOHS PTSA being chosen on your Kroger card.

Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns at

Looking forward to an amazing 2021-2022 for all SOHS students! GO DRAGONS!

LeeAnn Curey,  PTSA President
