Welcome to Bryson Middle's PTSA
We're proud to be a part of the National PTA which is the largest volunteer child advocacy organization in the United States. A not-for-profit association of parents, educators, students, and other citizens active in their schools and communities, PTA is a leader in reminding our nation of its obligations to children.
The BMS PTSA supports the school in many ways. From fundraising events like Spirit Week to teacher appreciation meals, our volunteers work hard to enrich the lives of all BMS community members. All parents, teachers, and students are encouraged to join our local PTSA chapter. Each membership is just $5 and helps us go a long way to help our school. Won't you join today.

Just refer to the order form linked below. You can order a plain sweatshirt(i.e. no embroidery) or and embroidered sweatshirt, and/or a plain hoodie or embroidered hoodie. Friday, September 14th children and/or parents can come to the front office from 7:30-8:30 am and 2:45-3:30 pm to look at color choices and sizes. We ask that if you need to look at the color or size that you try to come during those times. The examples will stay in the front office the entire 2 weeks if you cannot make it on the 14th. All orders are due by Friday, September 21st. We will get orders back to students as soon as we can.
As you can see on the order form we are selling car magnets and cinch sacks(used normally for gym clothes), both with or school logo. Show your school spirit and order one today. You do not have to order a sweatshirt to order a magnet or sack. We are also offering a special for $30 dollars, buy a hoodie, sack and magnet, that is a savings of $5 dollars!!!! Who doesn’t like a bargain?!?! Be sure that you mark the specific place on the order form for this deal.
If you would like to help with this process of these orders, either by helping coordinate orders, making a spread sheet of final numbers and names, or distributing orders please contact Heidi Glenn 449-8183. Any and all help that we get will only help us get these orders out faster. Thank you so much.
