Welcome to the SMS PTA Website!

The Scarsdale Middle School PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is a not-for-profit volunteer organization comprised of parents, teachers and administrators.  We are organized and chartered under the authority of the New York State PTA, a branch of the National PTA, and we self-govern under our own local unit bylaws.  We are a noncommercial, nonsectarian, and nonpartisan association dedicated to enhancing the experiences of Scarsdale Middle School students.  The pages listed on the Table of Contents at left provide information about our programs, volunteer opportunities, notices, meetings, and other useful information.

Our initial PTA membership registration drive for the 2015-16 school year is now closed.  We appreciate your understanding while we process all timely registrations.  Until we have finished this process, SMS households will not have access to the online directory service.  Please be patient.  Our weekly eblasts contain all relevant information, so please read them carefully before requesting personal assistance from our hard working volunteers.  Further instructions will be sent to those who missed the deadline.  Stay tuned to the weekly eblast for additional details, coming soon.

The PTA is beginning to plan our programs and events for next school year.  Please complete the 2015-16 PTA Volunteer Form to let us know what interests you.  The form includes brief descriptions of each of our committees. There is no limit to the number of committees you may join and no prior experience is necessary. Opportunities exist for both day and evening participation, with either large or small time commitments.

Follow this link to join the SMS PTA email distribution list.  PTA membership is required to be eligible for PTA mailings; we reserve the right to remove you from our distribution list if you are not a PTA member in good standing.
