Let's have a POPPIN' good year with Adams PTSA

Welcome to the Adams Middle School PTSA
(Parent – Teacher – Student – Association)

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of parents, teachers/staff, students, and the community working together to positively impact the lives of all children and families. We build strong, collaborative relationships between parents, teachers/staff, students, and the school to provide a successful learning community for all our students. Your membership and donations help fund PTSA sponsored school site programs and events, as well as build community and support for our school. Please consider signing up all parents, students, siblings and extended family members. Your support is needed and appreciated, and helps us continue to do great things for our kids!

Join Us!

The AMS PTSA provides enrichment to our children's education year after year but we can't do it without your help. By joining the PTSA, you help us cultivate a community at Adams by supporting programs that have become a tradition. Please consider joining the PTSA by clicking HERE

  • We have 100% Teacher Membership!

    • Thank you to our Adams Teachers for being 2021-22 Adams PTSA Members! We are proud to continue the tradition of having 100% of our Adams Teachers as members! Thanks for being the T in our PTSA!

  • We only need 52 more members until we hit our next goal — 1 PTSA Member for EVERY student at AMS!

    • Thank you to our 1,008 Adams PTSA Members! We are only 52 members away from 100% membership at our school! Join now to help us reach our goal of one Adams PTSA member for EVERY Adams student. PTSA Membership is $10 each, never requires you to volunteer, and every single membership helps support our school, along with your generous donations.

Become an Eagle Club Member!

Eagle Club is an exciting way to help our PTSA reach our fundraising goal while giving back to those who support us. Without the donations of our supporters, Adams PTSA could not fund great programs like Hands on Art or enriching educational opportunities like our grade-level programs and Scripps Spelling Bee!

To become a part of the Eagle Club, each student at Adams is to have two active PTSA family memberships in addition to a $50 (or more) donation

Membership is $10, and we encourage parents and students to become members! An added benefit to having your student as a member is that it provides them the opportunity to apply for an Adams PTSA Alumni Scholarship when they are Seniors at Redondo Union High School. 

If you would like to take advantage of this Eagle Club opportunity, there are two ways to join:

  1. To join with a credit card, go to https://jointotem.com/ca/redondo-beach/adams-middle-school
  2. To join with cash or check, download the PDF below. Complete the form and return it to the Adams office with your payment. Please makes all checks payable to Adams Middle School PTSA.

Thank you to our Eagle Club Members!

Thank you for your invaluable contribution as both a member and a donor. We greatly appreciate your generosity and support on behalf of all the students at Adams Middle School.
