About Us


The East Grand Rapids Middle School (EGRMS) Parent and Teacher Organization (PTO) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit group run by parent volunteers whose purpose is to support the education of children at EGRMS by fostering relationships among the school, parents, and teachers. We fund events, provide supplies, organize volunteers, and much more.  


There are many ways to offer your support of our students. We encourage every parent and guardian to show support by joining the PTO. Annual membership dues help us to fund important programs and events for our students.
Printable Membership Form: 
Please make checks payable to the PTO where your child attends. 
If purchasing memberships at multiple schools, please write separate checks to each PTO.
