Dear Parent/Guardian/Staff,

The PTA Executive Board ofMcManus Middle School (MMS) would like to say thank you as the 2023-2024 PTA year is ending. We are sad to see some families leave, grateful for the new ones that have become part of our family this year, and excited for our future families arriving in just a few days.

Our children are fortunate to attend one of Linden’s finest middle schools. The PTA of MMS actively supports this high-quality learning by generously donating time, energy, and funds. Your support makes the PTA’s support of the school possible.

The McManus PTA is responsible for and/or sponsors many school activities such as the book fairs, teacher appreciation breakfasts & lunches, dances, and school fun days. The PTA is a tremendous opportunity for parents to get involved in their school, have a forum to voice concerns or help promote excellent work from both our students and the school’s faculty and staff.

However, the PTA cannot function and will fail without parent involvement and leadership. I urge and plead for every single parent to join the PTA and become involved in your child’s school experience. There is also a need for PTA officer this upcoming 2023-2024 school year. The position is for Treasurer. This position is voted on by the current school year’s PTA member body in the Fall. You must be a paid PTA member in good standing to run for this position and or to vote in the election. The election will be held at the first called PTA meeting of the school year, which will be held during the first month of school.

The 2023 -2024 PTA membership is $12.00 individuals or
$22.00 family (2 individuals) for the school year. Please fill out our form and return or to school or

Joining does not require you to do anything but pay a membership fee to help support the children, however, there are three ways you can help us if you choose in creating a strong and vibrant school.

Attend PTA Meetings. Parents are invited to join our  2023-2024 bi-monthly meetings. PTA meetings empower parents. We strive each year to do more, be more, and grow more.

Volunteer. We understand everyone is busy and volunteering is a fantastic way to make a difference, connect with other parents, and school staff. Unfortunately, unless you are a paid member of the PTA you are unable to volunteer due to insurance regulations.

Donate. Another important way to be involved is by donating to the PTA. Donations in any kind or amount help our school! All moneta1y, goods, or services collected through donations and/or fundraising events supports student and staff for an enjoyable learning environment.

Please share your email address, with the McManus PTA, so we can keep you well informed of what is going on at MMS PTA. Please provide your child’s name and 2023 – 2024 Grade.

Thank you in advance for your suppo1t and we look forward to working together for an outstanding 2023-2024 upcoming school year!
