The Washington Middle School PTSA is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization. We currently have a small number of people volunteering, as we lost a lot of active members due to graduating students last year. Please contact us (see the “About the PTSA” link for contact options) if you are willing to be involved in any way (officer, committee chair, occasional committee volunteer). Also: the WMS Families Facebook page (Washington Middle School Families Group) is a great way to stay in touch. Even if you are not interested in PTSA leadership/volunteering, please join the PTSA (it is free!) and follow the Facebook page for timely information on WMS news and events.

This is the website of the PTSA (also known as the PTA). The official website of Washington Middle School for Seattle Public Schools is

What we do:

  • Keep families connected. We host community events. We share news in Purple Press emails, texts, the WMS app, and the PTSA website. We reach out in multiple languages.
  • Support our teachers. We provide grants to each teacher, and fund departmental needs. We make “Opportunity Grants” available for larger projects, special events and more.
  • Support student learning.  We fund enrichment activities, during the day and after school.
  • Promote advocacy and equity. We educate our community about issues such as K-12 funding and Seattle District policies. We help provide equity in education opportunities and seek to be an actively anti-racism organization.
