welcome to the stripling middle school pta


Thank you for your interest in learning more about the Stripling Middle School PTA.

The vision of the SMS PTA is to engage, encourage, empower and support the students of Stripling Middle School. Our overarching goal is to make every student’s potential a reality. We strive to provide the utmost educational, meaningful, and memorable experience imaginable for all students at Stripling. We do this through a variety of committees, annual events, fundraising and campus improvements.

The SMS PTA is a member of the National PTA, Texas PTA, and the FWISD Council of PTAs.


The SMS PTA is comprised of parents, teachers, administration, grandparents, neighbors and friends of Stripling Middle School. Within our body of dues-paying members, we have an active group of SMS board and committee members who work throughout the year to carry out the mission of the PTA.
