How you can help

Parents are essential to the operation of PS 199 and the PTA. Our expansive efforts in the areas of community-building, fundraising, and social outreach require a wide variety of talents and skill sets to ensure successful outcomes. 

There are so many ways to help support PS 199! Whether its joining a committee, sharing your knowledge and experience, being a class parent, or donating funds or supplies, our school needs your help to continue providing our children with the best possible public school education.

We encourage all of our parents to get involved in person at least once during the year.

Below are just some of the ways you can get involved with PS 199.

Donate Your Time

Committees play an important role in the successful operation of the PTA, and they offer a great way for parents to get involved at PS 199 in a way that is personally meaningful based on interests and expertise.
