Community Outreach 2024/2025:

Are you interested in joining the Community Outreach Committee? We are looking to fill both co-chair positions. The commitment to being on the PTA Executive Board is not as time consuming as you might think. Or be part of our collection drives, which are a great way to learn how our initiatives and community partnerships work. Is there a particular collection you'd like to lead? Suitcase collection for Floyd Bennett Field? Blanket collection? Book drive? Park cleanup? Please reach out to emilybhager@gmail.com or Jeannelschwartz@gmail.com  if you're interested in participating.

As always...
