Welcome to the Robert Gray PTA Website

You can now donate to Robert Gray PTA by credit card, debit card or with a PayPal account

Your donation through the RGMS PTA funds improvements to the school beyond what PPS provides, such as events, special programs, community outreach, classroom supplies, student-serving needs and more. This school year, the PTA’s budgeted expenses are over $46,000- approximately $95 per student. If you’re able, please donate to support the PTA, and even consider covering the cost of a student whose family isn’t in the position to contribute.

A suggested donation of $95 covers expenses for supplies and activities for one student per year. If you are able, please give directly via the Donate button here, or make checks payable to RGMS PTA and send to the office Attention: PTA Treasurer.

The PTA is the sole support of many activities that enhance the quality of our students’ education. Thank you for considering an annual donation to support our students, teachers and school.

New In May 2022: Compassion Through Literature Little Free Libraries

Positive Charge PDX Logo

Positive Charge! PDX’s Compassion Through Literature project came about as a result of seeing too many books being banned in schools around the country, and too many students being both underrepresented and unsupported in the place where they spend most of their waking hours of their days: school.

The Robert Gray Middle School PTA has helped grow this project by installing Four Compassion Through Literature-themed libraries in our community in conjunction with the Timbers, the Children’s Book Bank and Positive Charge! PDX. Timber Joey built and painted each one just for this cause!

We invite you to visit out little library locations in SW Portland!
