Volunteer Opportunities

PTO Staff Luncheons

SMS PTO would like to continue the tradition of showing appreciation to the staff, by providing them with a monthly luncheon. All events are on Wednesdays, except duringParent/Teacher conferences. Over 100 staff and teachers at the middle school look forward to this event every month; they appreciate the generosity and time put into this by the SMS parents. If you are willing to donate to one or more of the lunches, fill out the form below and return to the SMS office. You will receive an email from SignUpGenius where you can choose what you would like to bring in for the meal. If possible please bring your items in disposable containers. In addition, SMS PTO accepts donations of gift cards/certificates that are used for a monthly teacher drawing (e.g. $5 for Italian Dreams, Shawn’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Subway, Culver’s, etc.). Finally, we are looking for a couple of parents to be Staff Lunch Co-Chairs. These volunteers will coordinate with each other and the main office to help with set-up and clean-up (and to help find other volunteers with set-up and clean-up).

PTO Dances

Parents may volunteer as chaperones at the three PTO dances (September 13, January 10, and February 28). We also ask parents to donate snack items that students can purchase at the dances. The main office will send out emails to parents to sign up for donations and volunteering.

Other Volunteer Opportunities and Meeting Information

Our main fundraiser, SMS Run-A-Thon, which takes place in the in the fall offers another chance for parents to volunteer. We are also looking for a couple of parents to help with laminating once a week (or less). PTO Meetings are the first Monday of the month at 3:15 PM. If you have any questions, please contact us at (815) 899-8170.
