Who Is The P.A.
WHO IS THE PARENTS' ASSOCIATION?
YOU ARE! First and foremost, YOU are the Parents' Association! Every parent or guardian of a child at P.S. 144 is automatically a member. The PA Executive Board and Chairs are parent volunteers, just like you, and we rely on every parent to be successful.
WHAT DOES THE PARENTS' ASSOCIATION DO?
RESIDENCIES or enrichment programs for our children are provided by the Parents' Association in collaboration with the school. The age-appropriate programs are specially chosen for each grade in the areas of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math). It is your generous donations that directly impact the students in our school.
Our AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM (ASP) is available Monday through Friday until 5:50PM. Through the Central Queens Y, P.S.144 staff and various vendors, we offer a variety of different programs at various price points. Take a look at our wide-range of classes!
The PA also provides FUNDING SUPPORT for the school through classroom supplies, school agendas, recess equipment and staff support.
HOW CAN I BE INVOLVED?
YOU CAN VOLUNTEER at a Parents' Association EVENT! The PA hosts many fundraising events throughout the year. Whether you can commit to one hour or several days, whether you can help with party decorations or talent show line up, ALL is appreciated and needed. Other ways to be involved include volunteering for the school as a helper within the classroom or at lunch and recess. We need everyone to pitch in and offer what they can, JUST ASK!
YOU CAN DONATE! Did you know? If every child donated $160, the PA would be done with fundraising for the entire year!
There are several ways to DONATE:
- Write a check to “PA of PS144Q”
- Online donations (one time, monthly, or Paypal to email@example.com)
The Parentsʹ Association of P.S. 144 is a 501(c)(3) organization and your donation is tax‐deductible as allowed by law.
