The Monroe Township Middle School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) would like to welcome you to our school. For those of you who are unfamiliar with us, we are a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all dedicated to the successful education of our children. The MTMS PTO works hard to help make the school year both enjoyable and exciting for students, teachers, and parents.
The purpose of our organization is to aid the students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs; to promote open communication between administration, teachers, and parents and to encourage MTMS school spirit and pride. The PTO uses its resources, both manpower and monetary, to support all the efforts of the staff of our school. These programs and activities help promote the welfare of the children in school, home, and community through the united efforts of all the parents and the entire Middle School staff. The PTO supports assembly programs and social events.
In order to raise the funds necessary for these programs and events for our children, we run a few fundraisers throughout the year. Please be sure to stay connected by checking our website (www.mtmspto.org) frequently, look out for special emails about upcoming PTO activities, and “liking” our Facebook page at MTMS PTO. Last year was an extremely difficult year for all students, faculty, staff and parents. We all have suffered from uncertainty, fear and change. As we try to move ahead in these unprecedented times, we must all band together to support our children and their journey during these difficult times. The PTO’s goal is to try to keep as much “normalcy” as possible in their routines. We have devised creative “social” and fundraising events while adhering to necessary safety precautions.
