Welcome!  Our Pyle PTSA (Parent-Teacher-Student-Association) proudly supports our Pyle Panthers, faculty, staff, and MCPS community in countless ways.  We invite you to join us and to get involved.  Pyle is our middle schoolers' "second home" for three years so we do everything we can to enhance it.  Please scroll down to learn more.  At the bottom of this page is our PTSA Executive Board and Committee Chair list.  Please contact us - we would love to hear from you.  Go Panthers!

Pyle Community Communication: AtoZConnect  

Pyle AtoZConnect's features:

  • AtoZConnect is an all-in-one platform that supports the functions of:
    • Email/Text Community Communication,
    • Student/Parent Directory (Accessible only with PTSA Membership)
    • Online Store
    • It allows parents to "opt-in/out" of various features.
    • Access to email/text and store functions does not require PTSA Membership.  (i.e. you do not have to join the PTSA to get the community emails from Pyle.)
  • All five Pyle feeder elementary schools use AtoZConnect; therefore, AtoZ uploads the 5th grade parents' info into Pyle's 6th grade every summer.
  • Parents can "unsubscribe" on their own at any point by clicking "unsubscribe" at the top of any email.
  • Emails can include photos, attachments, and links. 
  • AtoZConnect has an App for smartphones!  (Search AtoZConnect in your store)
  • Information in AtoZ can be updated by a parent at anytime.
  • If you are a teacher, administrator, or PTSA/Foundation volunteer, you may post informational emails via AtoZConnect by sending them to "PyleAtoZConnect@gmail.com." Please include a descriptive subject line, detailed text (who, what, when, where, why, how) and include your name and email address at the bottom for questions.
