What is the PTA & why get involved? All parents and legal guardians of children who attend PS 59 are automatically a voting member of the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA). The PTA plays an important role in supporting this great school by working hard to provide the “extras” that enrich our children’s educational experience. We partner with our parents, teachers, staff and community on many levels to bring fun and educational programs, events, services, and opportunities to our children. From our membership donations and fundraising events we support the school in providing classroom supplies, books, in school events, field experiences and much, much more.
Field Experiences & Enrichment: As part of the philosophy and curriculum at PS 59, our children have MANY field experience and in school enrichment opportunities, presented by cultural organizations from across New York City. Our membership donations and fundraising efforts allow the PTA to contribute to the cost of these experiences.
Membership Donations: PS 59 PTA membership donations are $10 per month, or $100 per year per family. We are a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization, and your membership donations are tax-deductible. If you wish to make your donation at the start of school, please send donation in your child’s backpack or pay by credit card on our website by clicking the school store icon on the homepage. This is a suggested donation, and not mandatory for membership in the PTA.
Thank you in advance for your support. We are looking forward to another amazing year and hope to get many more parents and guardians active in the PTA.
Excitedly, The PS 59 PTA
