Mission and Vision
The Voss Middle School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to establish and strengthen a strong partnership between parents and teachers in order to promote a safe, loving middle school environment while improving and enriching the Voss Middle School experience for every current and future student. We will assist in delivering the highest quality of education possible with a steadfast focus on the students' best interests both educationally and socially. We will also provide transparent communication to parents and teachers and create a place where volunteers are valued, respected and greatly appreciated.
WHAT DOES VOSS PTO DO?
> Establishes and maintains a working relationship among parents, school and community.
> Supports school improvement teams and promotes the finest education possible for the students at Voss Middle School.

A strong PTO will play a crucial role in providing resources and opportunities for our educators and students. There will be many needs not covered by the bond money allocated to Voss Middle School, as well as the need to make up for funds lost through the Robin Hood initiative. By becoming a member of PTO, you are making a direct impact in the education of our children!
As a Voss PTO member, you will have access to volunteer and student engagement opportunities, and you will receive email communication that is distributed to the PTO membership database regarding updates & involvement in PTO-funded initiatives .
Not only that, but ALL PTO members receive the Voss Value Card - a special discount card for local businesses that will pay for itself in no time! Click here to see the most up to date discounts for our members!
