Why volunteer at SOMS?
Volunteering at SOMS helps foster the home/school connection. Since the middle school doesn’t have class ambassadors, volunteering on a PTA Committee is your best opportunity to become involved in your child’s life at SOMS. You’ll have a unique perspective on daily logistics and relationships, the opportunity to get to know teachers and staff, encourage a safe and friendly environment among the student body, and you’ll help the PTA provide resources, events, and activities for our middle school students.
There are several volunteer opportunities available at SOMS. If you’re interested in participating, please reach out directly to the committee chairperson, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or use the contact form at the bottom of the page, below the committee descriptions. We appreciate your support!
*SOMS Delegates to SOCSD PTA Council: Pat Tobin and Suzanne Chiang
The PTA Council helps build stronger, more effective units by providing leadership opportunities, and facilitating communication and cooperation among member units, district-wide.
The SOMS Delegates to Council represent our PTA membership at monthly meetings held at Tappan Zee High School. The meetings provide a K to 12 perspective, as well as an opportunity to consider ways in which we can work together to support our children across the entire district. Together with the Council Executive Board, the delegates comprise the voting body of the PTA Council.
*Spirit Wear: Laura Doherty
Spirit Wear clothing sales are one of the major fundraisers for SOMS. We typically hold 2 or 3 Spirit Wear sales throughout the school year. Responsibilities include distribution and collection of order forms, placing the clothing order, and distribution of Spirit Wear. Contact email@example.com for more information.
