The mission of the SMS PTO is to improve the educational experience of students by supporting SMS teachers and administrators. We accomplish this mission by raising funds and encouraging/facilitating parental involvement in our school. The SMS PTO is a 501-c-3 nonprofit organization which does not pay dues to a national PTO organization.
All donations to the SMS PTO are 100% tax deductible and all are used to support the educational programs and facilities of SMS.

Feel free to contact us anytime with questions or suggestions at [email protected]. Also be sure to follow us on Facebook at “Sebastian Middle School PTO.” We look forward to working with you!

The Eagle Store Opens on 9/13!
As an integral part of our Positive Behavior Incentive System (PBIS), the Eagle Store gives students the opportunity to use the reward points they have worked so hard to earn from their teachers.
The PTO will open the Eagle Store on Fridays, during all three lunches from 10:00am—12:10pm. The store will be open once every three weeks throughout the school year.
Students may purchase snacks and/or school supplies in the store with points earned through the SMS points-based rewards program.The store is stocked by donations from our SMS families and the PTO.
Eagle Store Volunteers and Donations Needed!
The PTO opens the Eagle Store once a month to give students a chance to spend their hard-earned PBIS reward points. We need your help to staff the store and stock it with fun prizes! You can click here to view the Eagle Store Wishlist on Amazon and ship items directly to SMS. In addition to your donations, the PTO needs parent volunteers to staff the store on the days when it’s open. Click here to open Sign-Up Genius to select your date(s) to volunteer. As always, thank you for your generous support of this great program!
