Mt. Tabor Middle School PTA
We support MTMS by funding classroom grants, field trips, library activities, and other school programs. We meet four times a year. We recruit volunteers to help with MTMS and PTA activities. We sponsor special programs during the year to strengthen the MTMS community. As a PTA, we work with local, state, and national organizations to advocate for children.

PTA General Information
Joining the PTA allows us to keep up the support for classrooms, activities, and special events at MTMS. Membership is $15 per person per school year. Please fill out the PTA Membership form (here) and return to the MTMS office with a check or pay online through SchoolPay (but still return the paper form please):
We have opportunities large and small throughout the year. Key opportunities are listed here:
- Chaperone a School Dance, 10/25 (filled!) and 2/14 (still need a volunteer), 4-5 p.m.
- PTA Clothing Center, 12/13 and 2/7, 9:30-1 p.m. @ Marshall Campus. (help families shop for school clothes at city-wide center)
- Teacher Conference Lunch, 11/19 (provide a dish to support our staff)
- Coordinate Staff Appreciation Week, 5/6 - 10. (We need one or two super coordinators to make this week special for our staff.)
- Join the Playground Improvement Committee. (We need a chair for this ongoing committee and eager members.)
If you are interested in any of these volunteer opportunities, please contact email@example.com. Please put the volunteer opportunity in your subject line.
Keep a lookout on Facebook, in the hallway, and on our newsletter, linked to the principal’s message on email, for these and other great volunteer opportunities!
We try not to bother with lots of fundraising programs. Instead, we seek to raise $3,000 in direct donations each year from members and the community. You can donate by writing a check to MTMS PTA (deliver it to the MTMS office) or through pps.SchoolPay.com, under the “Nonprofit Groups” tab.
