Welcome to the Culver City Middle School (CCMS) Parent, Teacher, Student Association (PTSA).  When you join the PTSA you become part of the "oldest and largest volunteer association in the U.S. working exclusively on behalf of children and youth." (National PTA)  The mission of the PTA is to better the lives of every child in education, health and safety, to ensure the educational success of children, and to promote family engagement.  In Culver City, we have the strong support of our Culver City Council of PTAs to uphold the values of our founders:  be a voice for all children, a relevant resource for parents, and a strong advocate for public education.
Culver City Middle School PTSA is dedicated to creating a village that helps raise our kids and strengthen our community.  We raise funds to support specific needs at our school including...
Field trips for all grades Classroom materials for all teachers Library books and resources
Parent Resource Center Inclusion/Special Needs program Support of GATE program
ELD:  English Language Development Mindfulness WEB:  8th grade mentor program
Staff and Teacher appreciation 8th grade breakfast, awards night, promotion  
100 Campaign
This year we are launching our 100 CAMPAIGN which is a direct donation fundraiser.  100% of your donation will stay at our school to be used by both PTSA and Panther Partners, the booster club of CCMS.  This year the PTSA will not be running any other fundraisers and will rely solely on your contributions to fund our programs.  In order to provide quality experiences for our 1700 students, we need to raise $100,000.  There is no minimum amount, and every dollar counts!  Thank you for giving generously today!  Your contribution made before the end of the year is 100% deductible on your 2019 taxes.  Donate today through this link which will take you to the Panther Partners donation page.
Your annual membership dues of $8.00 help to support so many wonderful programs, events, and opportunities at our school.  A portion of your dues stays at our school, and the rest goes to support the work and services of the California State PTA and National PTA.  We would love for your family to be an active part of our team!  You can join using one of these three ways:
Every two years the PTSA is required to update their bylaws and post the changes for the Association to review.  We will be voting in these recommended changes at our September meeting.  Please find them under the "Files" section at the bottom of this page.

September 24, November 19, January 28, March 17, and May 26 at 7:00 pm in the Middle School MPR Room.  Please join us!
