The PTA works with you to purchase books and classroom resources, support the science and arts departments, and sponsor activities for indoor recess, assemblies and other programs that directly benefit our school. We organize numerous events for families throughout the year including Movie Nights, Art Expo, Holiday Boutique, Read-a-Thon, and International Food Night. The PTA also allocates money to support those families in need of assistance – whether that be through field trip sponsorships, additional school supplies for the classroom, or supplementing field day t-shirts.
Fundraising is therefore an important part of the PTA’s work so that we can create a great experience for our children. Here are some ways you can help raise money for our children’s school:
- Consider making a donation to the PTA in the enclosed envelope or online through PayPal. The envelope can be returned to your child’s classroom or to the PTA office on the first floor of the Main Building. (Note: PS150Q PTA is a not-for-profit corporation 501(c)(3). Tax ID: 46-3880183. Contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent permitted by law.)
