North Andover Middle School Parent Teacher Advisory Council

Parent involvement is an essential part of NAMS.  The PTAC (North Andover Middle School Parent Teacher Advisory Council) is a great way to find opportunities that might interest you.  Our first meeting of the year is scheduled for Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. in the NAMS cafeteria.

NAMS PTAC relies mainly on direct donations from the NAMS Community to raise the funds necessary to support these programs at the middle school. Our fundraising goal this year is $20,000. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support the NAMS PTAC. 

All donations are greatly appreciated and we thank you for your support.
