Welcome to the P. S. 165 Parent-Teacher Association (The PTA)!

The PTA is a group of parents and teachers working collaboratively with our school administration, staff, and School Leadership Team to enrich the environment for all our students. Our PTA serves all grades, PreK through 5th, and we look for programs and opportunities that can support our entire school community.

Here are some ways we help:

  • Improving communication with our parents through our web site, e-mail newsletter, and Facebook page.

  • Conducting outreach to get parents involved in school life.

  • Supporting school activities like Parent-Teacher Conferences, school tours, and curriculum nights.

  • Working with the school to identify and provide enrichment programs for our children.

  • Perform fundraising to support enrichment programs, field trips, and teacher appreciation events.

  • Electing parents to serve on the School Leadership Team (SLT).

  • Encouraging parents to volunteer on the District 3 Community Education Council (D3 CEC).
