Parent Teacher Association

Welcome to the Parent Teacher Association! Your Voice Matters!

 All parents of PS/IS 30 students are part of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA). The PTA is a way for parents to communicate with the principal, vice-principals, parents, and teachers. All languages are welcome! If you need translation help, please let us know. Help shape your child’s education at our school!

PTA Meetings: PTA meetings are a time to hear from your PTA representatives, your principal and ask questions. We also honor our Students of the Month and have special monthly presentations. Translation is available. PTA meetings are usually held on the third Tuesday of each month at 5:15pm in our auditorium.

What Does the PTA Do? How Can I Participate?

  • Come to monthly meetings! Listen to your fellow parents, teachers, and administrators and join in on the conversation. You can make a difference in the future of the school.
  • Join a committee. Much of this work is done over email; you don’t have to come to many additional meetings. For a committee description see under “committee” tab.
  • Nominate yourself. PTA or SLT elections take place in the fall.
  • There are tons of donation and volunteer opportunities, from fundraising events to bake sales and gift sales. Donate your money, your time, or your talent—or all three!
  • Be involved. Participate in any way you can: work from home and help make flyers, assist with our web site or help us start a newsletter.
  • Can you translate? We welcome volunteer translators (Chinese, Arabic, Spanish) to help all parents become involved.
