Hello JTMS Families,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year from your Parent Teacher Student Association!  We are excited for the upcoming year and look forward to a productive and successful partnership.

Jeffrey Trail Middle School’s PTSA supports critical academic needs, is an active voice on decisions that impact your child’s health, safety and quality of education, and builds a stronger, more inclusive school community. We invite you to join because increasing our membership, even one by one, makes it possible to offer activities/programs like…

  • Constitution Day
  • Kindness Week
  • Red Ribbon Week
  • Spirit & Lunch Activity Days
  • Abilities Awareness Week… to name a few! 

We understand that things are going to be not as expected, as we return to school virtually at first, due to the pandemic. The important thing is that we stay safe. Then we can have some fun. We will get creative and find ways to give the kids memorable experiences, even if it’s virtually for now.

As a parent it can be very difficult to stay connected to your middle school child. The days of volunteering on the school playground or classroom are long gone, and parents don’t have the same connection with their child’s school life that they once had.

Joining your PTSA can help bridge this gap. By becoming a Member, you will have the opportunity to be a part of your child’s time at JTMS. There are bi-monthly Association meetings where you will have access to your principal, Mr. Georgino, JTMS Counselors, a JTMS Student Representative, your PTSA Board members and a chance to connect with other parents. The meetings will start in September and from there we will meet on the fourth Wednesday of November, January, March and May. Meetings will be held on Zoom for now. Membership will provide you with the ability to participate in various programs sponsored by PTSA and do your part to make our community successful.

By becoming a Member, your contribution will help to improve our school by purchasing equipment and offering programs that enhance our students’ time while at school. Your Membership Pledges and Donations are critical for the PTSA to support JTMS and your child.

Please take a few minutes to fill out the online Membership Pledge and Donation form: https://jointotem.com/ca/irvine/jeffrey-trail-ptsa/join/register

For additional information, check back with us here for updates, details such as upcoming events and some ways you can donate such as the Ralphs Supermarket purchase program or the Amazon Smile program.

Go Jets!!!

What does PTSA do?

PTSA (Parent, Teacher, Student Association) brings Parents, Teachers, Students and School Administration together to enhance and enrich student education at Jeffrey Trail Middle School.  PTSA partners with one another and Mr. Georgino to identify and prioritize needs of JTMS and work collaboratively to provide resources, equipment, supplies, programs, support and funding directly to JTMS that would not otherwise be available to our children.  PTSA supports and advocates specifically for JTMS.

PTSA HAS in the past and, will continue to support the school on an as needed basis to maximize the learning experience.  


PTSA’s mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.


  • provide funds for purchase of new bicycle rack for 50 more bikes,
  • provide funding for relocatable lunch tables and benches,
  • provide funding for grill and related accessories for school BBQs,
  • provide funding for purchasing new computers for the school,
  • provide funding for purchasing new books for the library
  • provide funding for purchasing tools and books for each department as requested by department to support learning in the specific subject teacher supplies,
  • provide and support programs at JTMS such as Reflections, Red Ribbon Week, Astounding Inventions, W.I.N.G.S. behavioral recognition program, 8th grade Promotion Party,
  • provide support through volunteer coordination to assist teachers and school with events throughout the year such as 8th grade model election, school wide hearing testing, school celebrations or events requiring extra help
  • staff appreciation week

This year we would like to provide additional learning activities for kids after school and continue to support the school in any way requested. We would also like to encourage students to join us both as members (enabling them to have an active say in the decisions) and as vocal participants expressing their views and opinions in a positive and purposeful manner to enhance their own learning environment.

Not only do you as a member get insight into your child’s education but you also get to have a say in it through voting on financial decisions affecting money’s donated to the school and how it is used. Participation also gives you the opportunity to meet a variety of caring individuals who share the common goal of supporting an effective, safe and pleasant learning environment for our kids. 


Mark your calendars!
