Parent Teacher Student Association

  • The Tates Creek Middle School Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is a non-profit organization that works to encourage parent, student and community involvement with the school. PTSA membership is only $5.00 and everyone is encouraged to join to show their support for TCMS.

    Volunteering

    The PTSA also organizes parents and community volunteers to help the school with activities and providing baked goods and other donations.

    Volunteers are needed to help make all of the above events be a success! Additional volunteer opportunities include: Front door greeters, Tates Creek Celebration volunteers, volunteers for Picture Day, Lunchtime assistance, Healthy Lifestyles coordinator, Testing chaperones, Advocacy and legislation, and concessions.

    It only takes one person to think, “I can volunteer for that!” And that person will have made a difference! Please consider making a difference through volunteering at TCMS.

    Just a reminder, anyone volunteering in a Fayette County Public School (FCPS) must first register and be approved by FCPS. This can be done online at www.fcps.net. Click on Family & Community to see the link for volunteer registration.

    Easy Fundraising

    Kroger Cards - Beginning September 1st, Kroger will be changing their program to a more convenient method. They will no longer have the rechargeable gift card method. Instead use your Kroger Plus card and register your Kroger Plus card online. Enroll your card with Tates Creek Middle School PTSA to help earn money for TCMS PTSA. More information can be found at www.kroger.com

    Box Tops - These are collected throughout the year. Just send them in with your student or drop them off in the front office. http://www.boxtops4education.com
