The Middle School East PTA is a hard-working group whose support for GMSE academic and extracurricular activities is invaluable.

Annually, the GMSE PTA sponsor's a fitness fundraising event. These funds are invested in our students through the purchase of additional classroom support items including: various supplies and materials; technology; as well as supporting initiatives such as the  GMSE Sixth-Grade Adventure Day Camp and a homework tutoring program.

A powerful voice for all children
A relevant resource for families and communities; and
A strong advocate for the education and well-being of every child

About the National, State and Local (GMSE) PTA

For more than a 100 years, the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has provided support, information and resources to families focused on the health and education of children. The organization was founded in 1897 in Washington DC as the National Congress of Mothers. In 1908, in recognition of the importance of the parent-teacher relationship, it reorganized as the Parent-Teacher Associations. During the 1920s, it adopted the name National Congress of Parents and Teachers. During the 1930s it became known by its current name, the National Parent Teacher Association®.

The PTA continually seeks opportunities to better the lives of children at the national, state and local level. All local PTAs, including the GMSE PTA, are linked to the state-level PTA and the national PTA organization, forming a nationwide network of members working on behalf of all children and youth. Membership is open to anyone who shares in the mission and purposes of the organization.
