The Manhattan Middle School PTO was established as a 501(c)(3) organization under the IRS Code in 2005 following the merger of the Baseline Middle School with the Burbank Middle School.  As stated in the by-laws, the purpose of the PTO is:

  • To support the well-rounded education of students at Manhattan Middle School (“MMS”).
  • To improve the quality of education by supporting and funding the academic and environment goals set forth by the School Improvement Team.
  • To serve in an advisory capacity to the principal and to work in a collaborative forum with the principal and staff to facilitate effective site-based management.
  • To raise funds to be used for educational projects and other education activities for MMS’s students, faculty and staff.
  • To act as a coordinating body for all members of the PTO who would like to volunteer their time at MMS and to provide a structure for communication among students, parents, faculty, staff, administration and members of the community.
