As a parent and/or guardian of a PS198M student, you are automatically a member of the PS198M PTA.  You are what makes all the wonderful things at our school happen.

The funding for enrichment programs such as Chess, Playworks, Salvadori and more couldn’t happen without your financial support.  Lunch and recess would be even more chaotic without your volunteering.  When you see all of our kids having fun at the Spring Carnival, Family Game Night and Movie Night, it is because of you.

So please do what you can to help when the PTA needs to raise funds and recruit volunteers to continue making all of these things all possible at our school for our children and our families.
