Where do you fit in?
As a parent or guardian of a child attending PS 165, you are automatically a member of the PTA!
How can you get involved?
Please come to PTA meetings, where you can find out more about what we're doing to improve the school and see what you can do to help! Please get to know our board members.
Translation services provided at all meetings.
Se proporcionan servicios de traducción en todas las reuniones.
Volunteer at our events! We can always use more help.
We also encourage you to attend the School Leadership Team (SLT) meetings.
Last but not least, please donate to the PTA. Every dollar counts!
But I don't have time!
We are all busy parents, but every little bit helps.
Each committee offers an opportunity to volunteer for only a couple of hours in the entire school year or on a month to month basis. Click here for more on the different committees.
If you want to help, but don't know where to start, please contact us!
