Middle School Co-Chairs: Jenny Jiang & Henney Zavyalov
The Middle School PTA acts as a bridge between home and school. We welcome parents to take advantage of the many opportunities available to volunteer, whatever your interest. If you would like to help, please let us know!
We encourage all families to join the PTA. PTA dues directly support our programming, affording us the opportunity to present rich and varied complements to the curriculum, and enhance your child’s learning experience.
Communicating with parents is important to us – an email is sent every Sunday to the middle school community with pertinent info, reminders about upcoming events, and spotlighting particular activities.
