PTA

A Message from the President


                                                     PRMS PTA Knight   


Welcome back to another school year! My name is Karen Shenghit and I am your Pond Road Middle School PTA President.  The Parent Teacher Association is a non-profit organization designed to help further the academic needs of both the students and staff at Pond Road Middle School.  We know this year will look different but we are hoping to provide as much support as we can to all the staff, students and families at Pond. 

Our PTA relies on the school community in multiple ways.  First, we couldn’t be successful without volunteers.  We thank our volunteers who have been or will be working diligently to make this school year a great success.  

Second, we need funds.  The PTA is a non-profit organization that gives every penny back to the students and school.   Each year, we run the Write-A-Check Campaign.  There are so many unknowns about this upcoming year so we will keep our Write-A-Check goal at $10,000.  If we meet our goal, we will not run any other fundraising activities.  Please consider donating an amount that works for your family.  See the attached form for details.

Next, a great way to support the PTA is to become a member. We refer to members as Knights.  Membership provides you with many benefits that make joining worthwhile but does not obligate you to volunteer.  Membership is on a school year basis so being a Knight last year does not carry forward to this year.   So please join the PTA this year to support our school.  See the attached form for details.    

Did you know you can support the PTA when purchasing from the Amazon website?  Next time you shop on Amazon, use this link (Support Pond PTA through Amazon Smile) to set Pond Road Middle School PTA as the charity of your choice.  As a result, 0.5% of your purchases will be donated to the PTA.  Just remember to always shop at smile.amazon.com.

Finally, keep the Box Tops coming!  And register your Shop Rite card to support the Pond PTA.  Check out the attached flyer to see the new and improved way to collect digitally. 

On our end, we want to make sure you are informed.  For members, we offer text notifications with reminders and links to flyers.  If you become a Knight, you will be enrolled automatically given you provide your cell phone number and email.   This is so important, especially this year, to give us the ability to communicate with you!  We have also have our own Facebook page to let you know what we are up to!  Like us at Pond Road Middle School PTA.  And lastly, we created a Twitter account this year.  Find us at @pond_pta.

We have also attached the Knights Spiritwear flyer if you want to get a jump on ordering any great gear!  See the attached form or visit Knights Spiritwear.

We look forward to another wonderful year filled with activities and events that your children will love.  We have attached a list of the General Membership meetings for the rest of the year and hope to see you there.  We thank you for reading and hope to meet many of you soon.
