Schimelpfenig Middle School ~ National PTA School of Excellence Baseline Survey
Dear Families, Administrators and Teachers:

The Schimelpfenig Middle School PTA knows that a strong partnership among our families, school leaders and community members is important to the success of our students and school. That’s why we are participating in the National PTA School of Excellence program, which grows partnerships between PTAs and schools to enrich the educational experience and overall well-being of all students.

At a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement. We feel Schimelpfenig Middle School and Schimelpfenig MS PTA can achieve that together—and the result will be national, state and community-wide visibility for the positive impact we are making together at Schimelpfenig Middle School.

We need your help! As part of the process, National PTA requests feedback from families, administrators and teachers at two points in the school year—the beginning and the end. Your feedback will help National PTA generate a customized guide which will provide specific recommendations for improving our family-school partnership and achieving excellence.

Please take 5-10 minutes to reflect on your experience at this school and complete the attached survey. This survey is completely anonymous.

Does this sound like a PTA program you’d really like to help with? Join us! Contact Lisa Heise at president@smspta.org to learn more!

Sincerely,
Lisa Heise
Schimelpfenig Middle School PTA President

Schimelpfenig Middle School Principal
