Welcome to the South Pasadena Middle School (SPMS) PTA Website. The SPMS PTA is a partnership between our dedicated parents, teachers, administration, and staff. We all work together to enrich our children’s education and school experiences, and to unite our community. We do this inclusively, by having conversations, developing programs, activities, raising funds to implement these plans.

Your involvement, no matter how big or small,  is not only welcome, but also necessary for our students to thrive!

Upcoming Events:

Principal Chat! Want to talk to Principal Kubela in an informal setting? See you Friday, April 26th, 8:15 a.m. in the Cafeteria.

STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK! Next week April 29 – May 3. Each year PTA hosts a week of gratefulness for our teachers and staff. This year, they’ll enjoy a coffee cart, catered lunch, massages, dessert party, and a parent-supplied potluck! Information and sign-up:
