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.

JOIN THE SMS PTA:  (2015-16 registration is coming soon.)
PTA membership registration for the 2014-15 school year is now closed.  PTA membership registration for the 2015-16 school year will open after the start of our fiscal year on July 1, 2015.  Please stay tuned for additional information about our membership drive in our late summer newsletter.

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.
