Why Join PTA?

Our PTA works together with parents, teachers, administrators, and other dedicated adults to promote quality education, expand the arts, encourage community involvement, and work for a healthy environment and safe neighborhoods for our students.

With community donations of volunteer time and financial resources, the PTA is able to provide for classroom support, technology, and other programs and events at JMS.

PTA membership also connects you to our school community, giving you a voice in decisions that impact your child both locally and at the state level.

The JMS PTA works to foster communication and cooperation between parents, student, teachers, staff and our community.  You can join any at any time, simply download the form below, fill it out and submit it at the front office.

The easiest way to get involved in this experience is to join PTA.  Once you complete a simple registration form, your $10 membership allows JMS PTA to carry on the great work being done for your child at school.  JMS PTA provides grants for teachers to take students on field trips, bus transportation, computer hardware/software, P.E. equipment, and educational materials and supplies.  We also provide funding for school programs, library books, campus beautifications, and enrichment opportunities like College and Career Day.  Although encouraged, your membership does not require you to volunteer for any of the PTA functions or attend any meetings.  If you do decide to volunteer, it would help us if you can complete the PTA Volunteer Survey so that you can tell what you are interested in. 


One of the ways to support JMS PTA is to contribute to our Direct Appeal Campaign.  100% of your monetary donation goes directly to our students!  Be sure to show your pride around town with your JMS lawn sign, free with your donation.
