Welcome to the Hammond Middle School! Our PTA sponsors and supports many programs and events for HMS students, staff and the school community. These include: Student Enrichment, Structured Social Opportunities, Character Development, Student Assistance, Staff Appreciation and Providing Volunteers. Please see the upcoming events at the bottom of this page for PTA meeting dates and times. I encourage everyone to attend our meetings and learn more about Hammond Middle School and the PTA.

PTA Needs YOU
We are looking forward to another great year in PTA but we need help filling a critical spot on our board- 2nd VP. We are also looking for volunteers to coordinate: Spelling Bee, Shopping Benefits, Reflections, Hershey Park Tickets fundraiser and 8th Grade Farewell Celebration.
This year HMS earned over $430 by participating in the Box Tops for Education program. This money all goes to support PTA programs. Our most recent contest for a $10 Rita's gift card has just ended, and 8th grader Nick Varda won! Thank you to everyone who supported the program this year!
We will have a Box Tops Back-to-School contest in September, and flyers with more information will be given out at the beginning of the new school year. Please keep clipping and saving those box tops, and we'll see you in the fall.
