Welcome and hello to new and returning WMS families

Yes, there is a PTO in middle school!  All parents/guardians and teachers are members.

At our monthly meetings with Principal Carter you will learn more about onging events, new programs, and initiatives that are happening at the school. This is a great time to ask questions about general school-related topics.  We hope you can join us for at least one meeting during the school year. 

Look for the date of our next meeting in the principal’s announcements. We meet one a month on a Wednesday night from 7-8 pm in the WMS Library

Over the past year we’ve tried to limit fundraising drives and focus on connecting parents with the Middle School. We hope to continue our efforts to build a stronger WMS community with your support.

Contributions are very much appreciated (and needed) but they are not mandatory. All WMS parents/guardians belong to our PTO. If you are making a contribution please check to see if your workplace has a matching gifts program. Checks be sent directly to the school office at 68 Waverly Ave.

The money we raise through PTO contributions and limited fundraisers helps to pay for student agendas (every student gets one), field trip costs, and classroom supply requests. Annually we support the Geography Bee, 8th grade graduation refreshments, teacher/staff appreciation luncheon and much more.

One of our biggest tasks as a PTO is to organize volunteers and events. When you volunteer at school events you get a better sense of where your student spends their day. You also get to know other parents which is harder to do as children move up in grade levels.

If you can’t make it to the meeting but would like to be on our e-mail list so you are aware of ongoing events and volunteer opportunities please send a note to We do not have access to the school database so please let us know if you want to hear from us.
