Welcome to Our Webpage!
Search our site for all the happenings involving your Middle School child for the this school year. PTSO is Eastern York Middle School’s Parent Teacher Student Organization which has worked hard for many years to make a difference for our 6th, 7th and 8th grade student’s experience.
The middle school years are an exciting time of extreme growth and a lot of physical, emotional and social changes for your student. Your child will meet some phenomenal teachers, make new friends and find their place in this new environment. Parents, these next three years will be your last chance to be an active part in your child’s school experience. In middle school, you will find less classroom time requesting your participation, activities being attended by your child without you and their social calendar filling up without you coordinating it! By the time they leave this building, your role will have changed from hands-on classroom parent to active observer of your teenager’s school life.
We, the PTSO officers, challenge you to get involved this coming year! Even if you’ve never been able to volunteer before, please consider joining the PTSO. Each year our PTSO members volunteer their time and resources, including raising money to provide the “extras” that help make the EYMS experience a great one. In addition to the support PTSO provides to help underwrite field trips for all students, the annual R.I.S.E. program for students who qualify, as well as funds for classroom resources and student incentives, we sponsor quarterly FunKnights, the Winterfest Craft Show, R&K sub/sandwich sales in the fall and winter, an Easter candy sale, school store, the 8th grade graduation ceremony and farewell dance and, new this year, the Scrip gift card sale that will run throughout the entirety of the school year. We fully understand the demands of daily life and realize that not everyone can participate in every event or fundraiser we run; however, we encourage you to get involved in the PTSO in a way that works best for your life. We have many opportunities available to volunteer and some important committee chair positions that are still available. We ask you to consider filling out the attached form to indicate ways that you may be able to help us this year. Our meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6pm in the school library.
By joining us, you will be making new friends, maintaining your presence in the life of your middle-schooler (which is worth any cost) and be making your mark on this school with your gifts of time and talent.
On behalf of the officers, welcome to Eastern York Middle School!!
We hope you will join us in supporting all of our EYMS students!!
