The Parent Teacher Association has been advocating for children since 1897. Research over the years shows that kids do better when parents are involved. Grades are higher, test scores improve, attendance increases and kids are happier. The PTA helps to make our school stronger and a stronger school means a stronger community.


PTA membership is open to anyone concerned with the education, health and the welfare of children. We invite you to join the Midland School PTA. We welcome parents, guardians, grandparents, aunts, uncles, college-aged siblings–anyone who would like to help us improve the experience of our students.  You can join us at our Memberhub (minimal service fee will apply) or join with cash or check using the signupform.  (checks payable to Midland School PTA).


All volunteers at our school must be a current member of the PTA and be SafeSchools-certified. If you have questions, please contact us at

Remember; You have to be a PTA member to volunteer... BUT you don't have to volunteer to be a member!!


Dues are: $20.00 for a family membership (2 adults) OR $12.00 for 1 adult membership.


Join us for a wonderful 2019-2020!

Hello! I'm a mom of three (Noah is currently our Midland kid). I'm originally from Queens and while I thought moving to Jersey would be a hard transition, it's actually been an easy one. I love it here! There's parking! I'm thankful for great neighbors and friends, the Paramus community and of course Midland. Some things about me are I'm a Christian, I enjoy fitness (CrossFit in particular) and watching The Great British Baking Show. This is my family visiting Niagara Falls recently.

Hi! I’m the mom of a Midland School 1st grader, Noah. I work with kids with Autism during the day and in my time off I enjoy going on adventures with my son. We love to do anything from going to the movies to Broadway shows to different vacations. We also love to go to the Jersey Shore in the summer. My son is very active in sports, which keeps us very busy during the school year. We try to use our time off to the fullest!

Hi! This is one of the rare pictures with just me in it, since I'm usually the one taking them. My main subject are my 4 'little' cowboys and the one big one. We are from The Netherlands and have lived here for 4 years now. We love to explore the outdoors together as a family as you can see in my family picture. I like to spend my time creating. Whether it is a birthday party (like the picture above, when I was a viking-mom ;) ), for my webshop, baking or anything else... if it includes food and or colors, I'm good!

3 of my boys are currently in Midland; K, 2nd and 3rd grade.
