Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!

Come out and volunteer. We hope you are enjoying the last lazy days of summer spending time with family and friends. The PTA is busy getting ready for the first day of school. We will be working to strengthen our school to ensure it is a place where every child can develop a love of learning and community.

We recognize the important role you play as parents & guardians, and we believe your support and input is essential for success. We hope you will consider becoming a member of the South Mountain PTA. It is our goal that every family participate so we can best serve all our students.

On our school’s website SMsuperstars.com,

select the button JOIN PTA to become a member,

select the button EBLAST to sign up for all school communications.

Be sure to check your emails to submit your First Day Online Forms for information about becoming a class parent, participating in events, and providing accurate contact information.

On the first day of school, stop by the redesigned Welcome Back Coffee in the cafeteria at the Big School or the Cafetorium at the Annex immediately after drop-off. It’s not just for new families! Learn how our school supports diversity, sustainability, arts in education, community service, along with other important topics, and how you can make a difference! Take a few moments to catch up with friends, meet new families, and mingle with Principal Jacobs and Assistant Principal Hess.

In addition, the PTA will host many fun-filled and informative events throughout the year.

Here is a preview of the upcoming events:

  • Incoming Kindergarten Playdate (9/5, 10 am, Annex Blacktop)
  • PTA General Meeting – (9/6, 9 am, Big School Cafeteria)
