CMS PTA Mission Statement

What is the PTA?

The CMS PTA is made up of a combination of board members, school staff, family, and community members who are working together to facilitate positive parent and family involvement in the school community. If you’re a father, mother, protector, guardian, and/or a person who teaches or instructs at Colchester Middle School, then we would love for you to become a member of our PTA.

What are PTA grants?

Grant applications are available to CMS faculty/staff and students for the award of small grants. Grants are awarded based on need, resources and benefit to the CMS community. It’s best to submit your application as soon in the school year as possible, as there are limited funds from which to award grants. Past grant awards have included state and national flags for the lobby, outdoor classroom/garden space, and AV equipment for reporting CMS student news.
