Mission Statement

To build a community of parents, teachers, staff, and students focused on supporting the educational
needs of our community members through communication, collaboration and community action.

PTO Communication

It is the PTO’s mission to foster communication in our community. Email our officers. We will utilize email to:

  • Send periodic updates and reminders of events at South
  • Request volunteers
  • Share PTO meeting minutes

Getting Involved with PTO

Funds raised support the PTO in providing one cultural arts program per grade per year, as well as other school-wide appreciation events.

We do our best to work around back to school night schedules in the other Braintree schools. Our meetings are attended by the school principal. Many parents enjoy these meetings because it is a great way to learn about the day to day activities at the school. We appreciate our parents’ busy schedules, and do our best to share information electronically.

Be sure to email our officers to join our email list; it’s especially helpful if you cannot attend meetings.

Stop & Shop Card Program

One way in which the PTO raises funds is through the Stop and Shop card program.

By furnishing us with your card number we can easily complete the process of registering our school with your card and then South Middle School will raise money with every purchase you make. Have a grandparent, aunt, uncle neighbor with a Stop and Shop card and they would like to help? Please include their name and card number and we will register them also.

This is a very quick and easy way to raise money for our school. Visit Stop and Shop to register online. Please be sure to register your card to benefit South Middle School using identification number 09163.

Other Ways to Get Involved

  • Utilize the textile bin located in the parking lot of the school and spread the word to neighbors and friends to use the bin. South will receive money for every pound of donated items. We request items such as:
    • Blankets
    • Clothing
    • Footwear
    • Stuffed animals
  • Attend PTO meetings.
  • Take advantage of our new drop box for box tops located just outside the school's front door.
