    The purpose of the Gates Chili Middle School PTO is to enhance and support the educational experience of students at Gates Chili Middle School, to develop a closer connection between school and home by encouraging parental involvement, and to promote family oriented and school sponsored activities through volunteer and financial support.



    All parents, guardians, and Gates Chili Middle School faculty and staff are encouraged to attend our monthly meetings in the MS Library at 7:00 pm.  School administrators attend and deliver school and district updates, funds requests are presented and voted on, volunteer opportunities are discussed, events planned, etc.  For a schedule of our meetings or to review past meeting minutes, please click the "Meeting Dates & Minutes" link from the left side of this page.



    SPRING SCHOOL WEAR ORDERS: As a result of the temporary closure of the district, the PTO has made a decision to cancel the Spring School Wear order.  All orders were returrned to students on April 30, 2020.  If you turned in an order and have not recieved your payment back, please send an email to GCMSPTO@gmail.com

    PTO SUMMER SCHOLARSHIP: Due to many uncertanties surrounding summer programs and camps, the PTO has regretably decided to suspend providing a scholarship for the summer of 2020.
