About the PTA

What does the PTA Do?

In a typical school year, we organize lots of fun events for students and families, fundraisers, and other services. The majority of funds raised by the PTA will go towards our Arts In Education program, which brings unique and fun programs to our students during the school day to supplement their education.

We recognize that this year will look very different from the years past, but please be assured that whether your children are attending school in person or virtually, we will do our best to provide them with experiences and support while keeping their health and safety our top priority.

Do I have to join the PTA?

No, but we’d love it if you did! To find out more about the benefits of the PTA, please visit https://nyspta.org/home/membership/. All household members may join - including students!

Do I have to go to meetings? Do I have to volunteer? Do I have to attend events? Do I have to sell candles?

No, no, no and no. When joining the PTA, there is no obligation to participate. (However, f you do want to participate with us, please do!)

I joined the PTA last year. Do I have to join again?

Yes. Each membership is good for one year.
