Parent Teacher Student Association

  • Greetings from the George Moses Horton PTSA!

    Stay connected via our Facebook page! 

    The George Moses Horton (GMH) PTSA is the liaison between teachers, students, and parents. Our PTSA provides teachers access to financial and volunteer resources that help our students in the classroom. We foster growth in our middle-schoolers by making sure that our extra-curricular activities (athletics, arts, clubs) are fully funded while encouraging community involvement in all areas.

    What does this look like from day to day?
    We help students, families, teachers, and staff by providing financial support from the classroom to the playing fields and everywhere in between. We connect people and encourage community involvement through fundraisers and events. Most importantly, we advocate for what is needed in order to meet the needs of our students. 

    Who can join us?
    Parents, guardians, grandparents, students, teachers, and staff. Anyone who cares about GMH students succeeding in academics, athletics, and the arts should join the PTSA.

    Show your support of GMH by joining the PTSA! Dues are $5 per year, and you must renew your PTSA membership each year. Click here to join today!


    How To Get Involved 


    Help at the PTA THRIFT SHOP:  the bulk of our budget comes from working at the PTA thrift shop. We host weekly work groups at the PTA thrift shop in Pittsboro. These two-hour shifts are a great way to raise money that directly supports our students, while getting to know other teachers, parents, and kids who also volunteer.

    GMH Winter Sign-Up

    Staff Appreciation Sign-Up. This is for the last Staff Meeting before the break on Monday, December 5th. We are having GMH families sign-up to bring in treats to thank our staff for all their hard work so far this year. You will drop it off on the morning of Monday, December 5th in the front office. *No refrigerated items, please. We do not have a place to keep them cold.


    Basketball Game Concessions Sign-Up. We need one to two adults running the cash box with National Junior Honor Society during our home games. This is helpful to NJHS to have this volunteer experience, GMH Athletics to provide food and snacks for GMH and visiting teams, and PTSA to help earn funds that in turn go back into helping the school. Please consider volunteering. We cannot do it without help.


    Volunteer When & Where You Can:  There are countless opportunities to volunteer at GMH throughout the year. This includes opportunities such as campus clean-up days, tidying teachers' workrooms, volunteering for school events, and helping at the annual Color Run. We’ll announce these opportunities via MemberHub and our Facebook group. You can also reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator by emailing to learn more about specific opportunities.
