Message from the PTA Co-Presidents

Posted on by

Welcome to your P.S. 40 PTA! Every parent or guardian of a P.S. 40 student is automatically a member of the school’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA). As a member, you will be joining an enthusiastic and active PTA that raises money and builds community at P.S. 40 through fundraisers, family events, and volunteer opportunities. Every effort, big or small, makes a difference and we invite you to participate in whatever way works for you.

We encourage you to join us at our family events, such as Fright Night, the Holiday Hustle & Fun Run, and Sports Night, or our parent fundraisers like Trivia Night, the Golf Outing, and the Annual Auction. If you’re looking to volunteer, we offer lots of ways to participate, including the Scholastic Book Fair, Kids Heart Challenge, Library Volunteers, and becoming a Class Parent, to name a few.

The Fund for 40, our annual appeal, benefits every student at P.S. 40. The proceeds help fund teacher assistants, professional development, arts enrichment, Visiting Author Series, New York Historical Society workshops, class trips, classroom supplies, and so much more.

We look forward to working with you to keep P.S. 40 going strong!

We’d love to hear from you. Please contact us at
