Whitman Middle School PTSA
WMS Parent Teacher Student Association
The Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports Whitman’s students, families, and staff. We are here to make sure you have the opportunity to stay connected to your student’s middle school experience. Many research studies have shown that when parents/guardians are involved in their child’s education, these students achieve more regardless of socio-economic status/ethnic background or even their own parent’s education level and we look forward to the new School Year!
The currently elected 6th Grade BLT member is unable to attend the scheduled Building Leadership Team (BLT) meetings – occurring on the first Monday of the month at 4-5 p.m. at WMS. In the interest of having 6th grade well-represented in BLT, we are now accepting self-nominations for the role and would like to announce and vote on this position soon. To find out more about this role, please contact Jan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Board could also use a volunteer for Social Media content and a Technical lead to help us keep up with the changing digital needs of our nonprofit. We are happy to work with you to develop these roles and work collaboratively with each other to make decisions, so you won’t be left on your own. If you are interested in helping us with either of these positions, please contact Jan at email@example.com.
Spirit Wear Orders Have Arrived!
Orders are available for pickup by your student at the ASB Pride Store. The orders will be available under your name, but if possible please email me the name of your student(s) and their grade(s) to aid with pickup. Thanks! Matthew Dresden at firstname.lastname@example.org Whitman PTSA Spirit Wear Lead 2023-24.
