PTA Dues & Donations
Please pay your 2019-2020 PTA dues! Your tax-deductible contribution to PS 38’s Parent Teacher Association supports the mission of the PTA and funds our efforts this school year. Each grade from PreK to 5th grade will benefit from programming funded by the PTA. Some of this programming includes: our new Library and a part-time Librarian, residencies with community-based organizations, and field trip support. We also fund early morning drop off, communication platforms like Konstella, the school’s website and the calendar; the Olympics; staff appreciation initiatives; and much more!
We encourage you to look into your employer’s corporate matching policies to make your contribution go even further!
All parents and teachers are automatically voting members of the PTA, and dues are not compulsory. However, they do help us immensely in reaching our goals!
