Rootstown Middle School PTO

Our kids’ success is measured by your support! JOIN the Rootstown Middle School PTO today!

What is the Rootstown Middle School PTO?

A parent, teacher organization developed to support the school, inform parents and organize activities for students using parent volunteers. PTO helps students and parents transition to the Middle School by keeping parents informed and involved and by providing important social interaction for students.

What activities does the PTO support?

  • Dances: There is a $5 admission fee and refreshments will be made available. Parents are needed to help plan and chaperone each dance.
  • Talent Show: This event takes place in November and allows students to showcase their talents. Help is needed with auditions, directing, practice and advertisement.
  • Fund Raiser: We will be doing a fundraiser in the fall. Information about the fundraiser will be coming home in September. We are always looking for new ideas so any suggestions would be appreciated. PTO has used the funds generated in the past for items such as a sound system, banners in the gym for the new PTC district, bookshelves, fans for the classrooms, a trophy case for academic achievements, an Ipad and an LCD projector.
  • Teacher Appreciation Week: Help is needed in the spring to plan thank you gifts for our valued teachers.
  • Drama Production: This event is held in the spring to allow students to experience acting and crew help before the high school level. Volunteers are needed to direct, audition, plan choreography, rehearse, build sets, and advertise.
  • Teacher Conference Snacks: Volunteers are needed to provide food for the staff during spring and fall conferences.
  • 8th Grade Recognition: This event is held in May to recognize the accomplishments of our outstanding eighth grade class. Volunteers are needed to plan and decorate for the ceremony.
  • 8th Grade trip: A committee is needed to pick a destination, plan, and organize a trip for the eighth graders in addition to chaperoning. Committee persons must be PTO members.
  • 5th Grade Orientation: This evening provides the incoming sixth graders a peek at middle school life to ease the transition for students and parents.
