One of the greatest strengths of The Children’s School is the collaboration among teachers, administrators, and families through the PTA of PS 372.
The PTA’s principal responsibilities are to facilitate this collaboration and to raise funds to support programs in our classrooms. The PTA has provided money to purchase iPads and computers, new sports and occupational therapy equipment, enhance the art and music programs, establish a chess curriculum, and support teachers’ participation in professional development programs. The PTA also raises enough money to award grants to classroom teachers and specialists for books and other educational materials.
The PTA organizes family events throughout the year, including the Book Fair, Silent Auction, and the Valentine’s Day Dance, as well as school events like Pizza Friday. The PTA also solicits dues from families, which are 100 percent tax-deductible.
The PTA meets monthly to provide a forum for all members of our community to ask questions and express ideas and concerns. We encourage attendance at meetings and volunteering for one of the many PTA activities. Participation at any level — big or small — is welcome.
