Parent Teacher Organization 

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  For those of you who are new to Gotha Middle School or are unfamiliar with the GMS PTO, we are a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff dedicated to the successful education of our children.  The GMS PTO works hard to help make the school year enjoyable, exciting and rewarding for students, teachers and parents. 


We, Trisha Engler and Kellie Kullich, would like to introduce ourselves as your 2017-2018 PTO Presidents. Collectively, we have spent 8 years as part of the Gotha Grizzly family and look forward to helping Gotha reach its fullest potential.


We would also like to introduce our Executive Committee:

VP: Karen Heyn

VP: Lisa Wolitz & Kristen Rutherford

VP: Gwen Richman

Secretary: Lauryn Andreson

Treasurer: Rita Phillips


PTO recognizes teachers and staff throughout the year by providing a monthly faculty "snack", teacher appreciation week gifts, meals and recognition, among other things.

PTO recognizes the students by sponsoring the grizzly greats, quarterly honor roll celebrations, straight A breakfast and more.


We have many new ideas to enhance Gotha's school spirit and overall experience and we need your help. Your TIME, TALENT and RESOURCES (both financial and otherwise) are greatly needed. Middle School is a time to GET CONNECTED and STAY INVOLVED. We invite ALL parents, grandparents and guardians to become registered additions volunteers and be a part of the New and Improved Gotha Family!


Please be on the lookout for dates of upcoming opportunities to get connected!

Please feel free to contact us at any time at


Looking forward to a productive year!
