Parent-Teacher Association

MS 839  has a very active Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), whose goals include:

  • Fostering a better understanding of the learning process through communication between parents/guardians and faculty
  • Helping to meet the needs of students through cooperation between family and school
  • Supporting the school through volunteer and financial assistance
  • Building community

Parents are welcome and encouraged to become an active part of the MS 839 family. All families are automatically members of the MS 839 PTA. All parents are welcome to attend PTA meetings. They are held once a month during the school year.  Please check the online calendar for time and location.

Members of the PTA include parents and guardians of MS 839 students, faculty members, and professional staff. There are many opportunities to volunteer, whatever your talents, interests, or time constraints.

We look forward to having all of you as part of the MS 839 PTA – ptaboard@ms839.org.
