Welcome to Middle Gate's PTA!  There's no better way to be connected to what's happening at Middle Gate than to be a voting member of the PTA.  Get involved and attend our monthly meetings with school administrators, teachers and parents alike. Our PTA is a forum for exchanging ideas and concerns, giving each member a voice with which to make suggestions and to vote, especially during Newtown's budget season.

Did you know that Middle Gate PTA runs or funds 50+ programs
including the Cultural Arts program, Kindergarten Registration and Scholastic Book Fairs?  In addition to supporting enrichment programs, your PTA continues to focus on providing assistance to the school for educational needs such as books for classroom and literacy center libraries and SMART boards for every classroom.

Volunteers
are the heart and soul of our organization.
We encourage every Middle Gate family to join our organization – not just by paying dues, but by becoming an active member of our school community.  There is a place for everyone within our school - no minimum time commitments or skill sets required!
