Volunteer Opportunities

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 somspta@gmail.com, 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: Available Position

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.

Membership 1-2 volunteers needed to promote/sell SOMS PTA membership via our PTA memberhub portal.  Most of this work is done August-November.  A great job for working parents as it can be done from home.


Spirit Wear: 

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 somspta@gmail.com for more information.


SOMS School Photos: 


Reflections is a National PTA contest held every fall/winter.  We need 1-2 volunteers to promote the contest and collect submissions.  Great position for someone who cannot physically come to school to during the day!


SOMS School Store:


Graphic Designer: Are you good at creating catchy flyers?  We are looking for someone to help run our social media and website by making graphics.


*SOMS Dance and Hospitality Committees –

Several volunteers are needed for a variety of dances and events held throughout the year.  Right now we are looking to form a committee for 8th grade events.  This committee will  be in charge of the 8th grade events and come up with “back up” plans if we are not permitted to hold events in school.  Please email somspres@gmail.com if you are interested in helping out!
