It’s Spring Cleaning season, and JT Moore is here to help! The JT Moore Community Yard Sale is Saturday, May 20, 9 am – Noon. Rent a parking space in the JT Moore parking lot for $25 – you keep the proceeds! It couldn’t be easier – you can pull in and sell out of the back of your car – or, if you have lots of stuff, park in the adjacent lot and fill your space with inventory. This is a fun community event drawing both JT Moore families and neighbors. Reserve a spot today by emailing Teri Seabrook.
Welcome to John Trotwood Moore Middle School

The grand opening of J.T. Moore’s new library!
The Moore-wear shop is open every Thursday from 8:30-9:30am
Our Campus Cleanup has been moved to Saturday 4/29 from 9am-noon because of last weekend’s rain. You can help pull weeds, pick up trash, move mulch, and maybe even plant some vegetables in our raised beds! Students will earn service hour credits while they help beautify their campus and the Green Hills Park next door (reminder that ALL students need to complete 10 service hours by May 5th and turn in their forms to Carly Price). Parents, please join your students in the fun! Remember to wear closed-toe shoes and sunscreen. Gloves and tools will be available but please bring your own labeled tools if you have them.
Thank you from the Greenhouse and Exterior Beautification Chairs!
The Matador Fund is a way for teachers and parents to fund special projects and improvements that support the PTO’s 3-Year Strategic Plan goals. It is comprised of prior years’ PTO fundraising in excess of budget, as well as specific community donations to the fund. The Matador Fund Committee meets four times a year to consider requests. Download a request form, which should be completed and emailed to Mollie Henry, Maura-Lee Albert or put in the PTO mail basket in the PTO closet.
Matador Funds are available for use for projects that support the school’s long-term plan.
Parents, teachers and staff are encourage to apply for Matador funding for their ideas by completing this form an turning it in to the PTO by May 4.
The Matador Fund committee meets the following week to determine which projects the PTO can help finance.
Teachers and parents who have a vision for a way surplus PTO funds can be used to improve education at JT Moore are invited to write a proposal and submit to the Matador Funds Committee, which meets quarterly to disburse surplus PTO funds. Last quarter we granted requests for about $5,000 worth of improvements, including music practicing software and iPads for band and strings, document cameras for five teachers, conference fees for our art teacher and several other requests. The next deadline for proposals is December 1.
Download the form here, complete, print and drop it in the PTO closet mailbox, or email your completed form to Mollie Henry.
