Happy November!

Thank you to all our volunteers who made October such a fascinating month!!! Kids Stuff, Picture Day, and our Falltastic Family Dance went off without a hitch! Thank you to our parent volunteers who assisted Fundraising with packing, distributing and collecting Kids Stuff Books, organizing and styling our students during Picture Day and planning, executing and volunteering during our Falltastic Family Dance. Without our volunteers the PTA Executive Board would be fruitless!

Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year


On behalf of the Executive Board of the P.S. 221 PTA, welcome to the 2015–2016 school year! We hope that you and your families had a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing you at school, meetings, events, and fundraisers.

One of the greatest strengths of our school is the collaboration among teachers, administrators, and families through our PTA. Our responsibilities are to facilitate this partnership and to raise funds to support programs in our classrooms and to build a strong community of involved families and staff.

As automatic members of the PTA we strongly urge you to donate to our Membership Drives and participate in our fundraisers. Without your financial support many of the beloved programs and events our children experience in the school would not be possible.

The PTA meets monthly to provide a forum for all members of our community to ask questions and express ideas and concerns. Child care for our students is provided in the evening meetings. We encourage attendance at meetings and volunteering for one of the many PTA activities.

Participation at any level — big or small — is welcome.

Here are some ways to become involved:

Join the PTA Executive Board –positions are available for the upcoming school year. Show your support for the school and dedicate time to enhance the education of the school community.

Attend PTA Meetings –  Join us to meet the current executive board, administration, staff and fellow parents. A list of upcoming PTA meeting dates and times will be available at the first meeting.

Volunteer…Volunteer…Volunteer Show your child(ren) that you support their school and help volunteer, coordinate and/or chair an event. Please realize we can’t do this without YOU – consider sharing your time and talents this year. Whether you want to chair a committee, help us organize a fundraiser, set up for an event during the evening hours or send out thank you notes to supporting businesses, we have a place for you and would be delighted for you to get involved. Please contact any board member if you are interested in helping, have suggestions, or if you have questions about the PTA. There are opportunities to get involved that can be done around your schedule at your convenience.

Let Us Hear From You – email us with your questions, comments, suggestions, and availability to volunteer at ps221pta@gmail.com. Remember to check the website for upcoming event dates and times at www.ps221pta.org.

We look forward to seeing you at our meetings and fun events!

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress;

working together is success.” –Henry Ford
