Thoreau MS PTA Website

It will be a year for change …

The Thoreau PTA is in the process of moving our website to a new platform that will also include a calendar of events, family directory, document posting, and online shop all in one place!  Our new site on the MemberHub platform requires you to create an account so you login to our community’s information in a private, password-protected area.  Please check out our new site HERE.

2020-21 PTA Board

Please congratulate and thank the following individuals who were elected at the May 26 PTA meeting to serve as our 2020-21 PTA Board:

President – Andrea Kramer
Vice President – Cindy Weinberg
Secretary – Chris Torregrossa

Since the May election, Philo Tran has agreed to serve as our new Treasurer.  The membership will formally elect Philo at our first meeting of the new school year.

2020-21 PTA Volunteers Needed

The PTA needs volunteers to chair or co-chair several of our activities this year.  Are you looking for a way to get involved at Thoreau, meet families and staff members, and contribute to our community?  Volunteers are needed to help organize or oversee the following:

  • Membership
  • 7th Grade Family activity
  • Hospitality (staff appreciation)
  • Dining 4 Dollars
  • Spirit Wear

For questions or inquiries, please contact PTA President Andrea Kramer.

Thanks to Our Volunteers!

2019-20 was an eventful year, and so many Thoreau families stepped up to help our community.  The PTA thanked and honored its many amazing volunteers at our final PTA meeting of the 2019-20 school year.  Please check out these presentation slides from the virtual PTA meeting.

Commemorative Courtyard Bricks

Help pave the future of Thoreau with your purchase of a commemorative brick!  Previously purchased bricks and new orders will be installed in the school’s newer courtyard once it is safe to do so and access to school facilities is permitted.  Each brick costs $50 and provides up to 3 lines of text for families to honor a Thoreau student, teacher, or staff member.  Proceeds support the PTA’s Campus Campaign that helps Thoreau Middle School obtain important classroom, technology, and other needs.

Order Form

Box Tops is Electronic

These new Box Tops are appearing on your favorite items.  You won’t be able to clip and send this style into school, but instead need to download the Box Tops for Education app to your phone to submit Box Tops electronically.  If you haven’t done so, please download and setup the app to designate credit going to Thoreau, and start scanning your grocery receipts.

If you’re ordering your groceries online, please submit these receipts for Box Tops credit too! Once you have a Box Tops for Education account that you’ve created via the Box Tops app or website, forward your email receipt from approved stores to using the same email that’s associated with your BTFE account. Emailed receipts can be submitted from BJ’s, Costco, CVS, Harris Teeter, Instacart, Peapod by Giant, Rite Aid, Safeway, Sam’s Club, Shipt, Target, Walgreens, Walmart, and Wegmans.
