PTA Committees

Our PTA is only as strong as ALL it’s members. Every parent/guardian at the Children’s School is a member of the PTA. So we are asking for each and every parent at The Children’s School to volunteer on a committee or at an event.

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!

Please indicate on the attached sign-up genius link which event committees and/or standing committees you would like to be involved with in the 2016-2017 school year (roles and responsibilities will be determined within the committee):

Committee sign ups can now be found at PS 372 – The Children’s School on Konstella.com.

    I bought a Children’s School tee shirt at an event earlier this year but I have misplaced it! I would very much like to buy another one to replace the one I’ve lost, if there are any available. Please contact me at the email below if it is possible for me to get a tee shirt now.

    Thanks.

      Hi Diane,

      Sorry for the long delay in replying. We don’t have any volunteers regularly monitoring our website comments. We have tee shirts available for sale in the PTA office. Please email me at president@ps372pta.org and we can arrange a time for you to come by to purchase a shirt if you are still interested in doing so.

      Best, Nina
