PTA Committees

Our PTA is only as strong as ALL its 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.


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