Who are we & what do we do?
We are the Parent-Teacher Association for South Orangetown Middle School. Our mission is to help parents navigate this transformational time by keeping these values close: Collaboration, Commitment, Diversity, Respect, and Accountability.
During elementary school connecting with your child’s school and teacher can be relatively straightforward and our kids generally welcome our involvement. However, the hands-on approach of family engagement can change when our kids’ reach middle school and seek more autonomy. This is a wonderful and natural process, yet it can leave parents feeling disconnected. SOMS PTA works together to fundraise and administer important school and social programs, such as assemblies, dances & parties, reflections, graduation celebrations, and much more! Our monthly meetings are held in the middle school’s beautiful new library with Principal Dr. Corey and Assistant Principal, Dr. Danielle Rodriguez. Several times a year we will have special guests attend our meetings to provide guidance to parents with social and emotional resources. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to hear what is happening at SOMS and to learn how the administration is addressing the needs of our students.
