Dear Parents, Guardians and Teachers,
Welcome back to PS55! For those of you who are new to the school, we warmly welcome you to join this big family.
Congratulations! – you are an automatic voting member of our Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) of PS55, which is set up to bridge between home and school. I hope that our partnership will pool a wealth of knowledge, talents, skills, and educate our youngsters. Your involvement really does make a difference in your child’s education.
Every year our PTA helps to oversee the needs and development of the school. We help by raising funds to provide a wide range of educational enrichment programs for our students. The money we raise helps to fund the school website, Music, Gym, Technology and Art supplies, books, software, school assemblies and much more. In years past, the PTA has provided learning opportunities that would have otherwise been unavailable to our children. As the new school year begins, we would once again ask for your support so that we can continue making resources and learning opportunities available to our children.
While dues are not required for membership, the PTA depends on your annual voluntary donations to keep all sorts of wonderful things happening for the children of PS55. If you choose not to make any voluntary donations, we still appreciate your involvement and your time contributed to support our school. You can make your donation via PayPal using the link below. Please be sure to include the students name and class in the note. You can also pay by check. Please make your check payable to PS55 PTA and put it in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on it addressed to PTA and have your child give it to their teacher. If you have more than one child at this school, please list all your children’s names and classes on one envelope.
100% membership means everybody wins!
The PTA welcomes you to join our meetings to raise your concerns and contribute your ideas and talents to better our school. Our meetings are generally held on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. (currently they are virtual via Zoom). Any schedule changes will be communicated prior to the meeting. All meeting dates and activities will be posted regularly on our PTA school website and through the Remind App which you can join at anytime.
We would like to thank you in advance for your support and generous donation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. May you have a wonderful school year and I look forward to seeing you at our next PTA meeting.
Or make check payable to PS 55 PTA.
