PTA Fund

Special Music School PTA Fund

Your generosity and support enables the PTA to be a partner, along with the Department of Education and Kaufman Music Center, in providing your child an exceptional educational experience. Our recommended PTA contribution this year is $450 per student but any amount is appreciated. We need 100% PARTICIPATION! 

The SMS PTA holds an IRS designation of a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. All contributions to the SMS PTA are TAX-DEDUCTIBLE


Pay by check: Make your PTA fund check payable to SMS PTA.

Kindergarten through 8th graders families can leave the check in the SMS PTA envelope at the front desk at the Kaufman Music Center.

High School families can leave the check with Lisa Stump, the Parent Coordinator whose office is located in the high school.
