Parents and Teachers For Students

PTFS

The Upper Perk Middle School Parents and Teachers For Students (PTFS) organization would like to welcome you to the Upper Perk Middle School. We encourage and welcome you to become involved with the PTFS. The purpose of this organization is to raise funds and sponsor activities to enhance the quality of your student’s educational experience while here at the Middle School, promote school spirit and pride, and develop a sense of community.

The PTFS sponsors a variety of activities and fundraisers throughout the school year. Our main fundraising activities include a Dodgeball Tournament, Box Tops & Redners receipt collections, Save Around Book and Scrip order sales, and Discounted Dorney/Hershey Park ticket sales. All funds raised directly benefit the students of Upper Perk Middle School.

With the help of volunteers like you and families supporting the fundraisers, we are able to provide teachers with supplemental curriculum materials, contribute to building needs, assemblies and field trips, and sponsor special parties and events for the students. Please attend our monthly meetings and volunteer a little of your time and talents to help support your student’s education. We look forward to seeing you!
