About CMS PTA
The CMS PTA is a partnership between parents and educators working to enhance student learning and enrich the lives of students within our school. It is a forum for parents to obtain knowledge and voice their opinions about what is happening at Coleytown Middle School and in the Westport Public School District.
PTA membership is open to all families within the school. The PTA is a volunteer organization and the success of all of our programs is due to the dedication of countless volunteers.
To help with volunteering please contact Patti Lynch VP Volunteers
How do my PTA contributions help my student and Coleytown Middle School?
The CMS PTA is an independent 501(c)3 organization that receives 100% of its funding from parent contributions and dues. This money is then used to directly benefit our students and staff. The PTA runs over 40 programs throughout the year including community events for our students, teacher grant programs to support innovative learning opportunities, and events to connect our parents with the school. Below you will find a compressive list of CMS PTA sponsored events and programs.
