Thank for for visiting the WAMS PTO Website!

The purpose of the Williamsport Area Middle School Parent Teacher Organization (WAMS PTO) is
to promote and enrich the education, welfare, and cultural awareness of the Williamsport Area Middle School (WAMS) students through educational programs and volunteer resources,

  • to provide a social community for the student body and students' families by promoting and organizing school activities;
  • to promote open communication, cooperation and positive rapport among teachers, parents, the school district, and the community;
  • to act as a non-profit fundraising body, providing financial support in those areas where additional assistance is needed to improve the quality of education for WAMS students; and,
  • to offer supportive services which enhance the Middle School experience.



Our Annual Membership Drive is underway, and we want to rally all WAMS Parents to stand behind our students and teachers and make this the best year ever!

There are so many awesome things that we can do together, and we are excited about the opportunities that this year holds.
