Congratulations to 8th graders and their families!!! Thank you for paving the way for the sixth and seventh graders. You are leaving the Mt. Tabor Middle School community a better place because of your work and contributions at school. We hope that you find many wonderful successes in high school.

As the school year ends and several PTA board members are moving on with their students, we want to say thank you to you as well. Thank you for all the time and energy you have dedicated to the PTA over the last year(s)! You are leaving the Mt. Tabor Middle School community in a better place because of your willingness to volunteer and contribute to the community.

We hope everyone has a safe, successful, relaxing, and adventurous summer!!! The MTMS PTA will be here at the start of next year. We are excited for the possibility of some more “normal” activities and events for 2021-2022.
