Gentry Middle School Parent Teacher Student AssociationWelcome to the Gentry PTSA page. This page is where you will find information for upcoming events and meeting, as well as minutes from previous meetings. We hope all parents will join the Gentry PTSA and get involved with our school this year! Our students still need parent involvement even though they are getting older. We look forward to working with you.There is no better way to know what is happening in your child's school than to attend regular PTSA meetings. It is also a great way to connect with other parents, become more familiar with teachers, be a part of school improvement and enjoy resources that are available to parents of school age children.

October, 2020 PTSA Update
Hi there GMS Families! This school year may not have started out the way we had all planned, but PTSA continues to support and serve our school community and we want you to be involved! If you have not joined PTSA yet, it never too late. In fact, our executive board has a great opportunity for you to join now AND show your support of our amazing school community at the same time.
When you complete the membership form we ask for a $25 fee. That fee pays for your membership dues, (a portion of this collected fee is also sent to the MO State PTA/PTSA), as well as a yard sign that will be placed in your yard showing your support for GMS school, staff and students. We feel it is important to show our appreciation for our teachers, staff and students during these difficult times. Gentry is an awesome school community with the BEST teachers/staff in the district and we are asking you for your assistance in helping show support.
Our executive board is made up of four (4) officers. Due to the pandemic, we were unable to transition this board to new officers in the spring. If you are interested in being more involved or taking on a more active role in PTSA, please reach out to any of our current officers for more information. The current officers are:
Eric Gilbert - President, firstname.lastname@example.org
Mandy Llewellyn - Vice President, email@example.com
Susan Hart - Secretary, firstname.lastname@example.org
Haley Schwarz - Treasurer, email@example.com
Even though we aren’t all together in person, our PTSA is continuing to support our school in many ways:
- we have purchased several outdoor tents for our students. These will allow for teachers/students to have more outdoor teaching/learning environments.
- we are offering additional nutrition bags to families that need them during these uncertain times.
- we are continuing with our efforts to show appreciation to our school staff through small tokens and periodic lunches/snacks.
- we continue to offer (3) teacher grants per semester to enhance our students’ learning environments.
We need your help! PLEASE consider joining Gentry PTSA. We would love to have you join us to discuss ideas. Our hope is that we can continue to better our students learning environment TOGETHER! We invite you to join our next meeting. The link for the zoom meeting will be posted on the Gentry website as we get closer to our meeting date. We hope you are able to make it! As always, THANK YOU for your continued support of OUR Gentry School Community!Membership forms can be found at: https://forms.gle/JLyQ2UwgG39of4ib9
