The Parent Teacher Association of P.S.165Q consists of general members and Executive Board members. General membership is automatic for parents, guardians or persons in parental relation to a child at the school as well as for teachers. The Executive Board members are elected posts and consist of president (or co-presidents), vice-presidents, treasurer, secretaries, and members-at-large.

The PTA officers and parent volunteers of P.S.165Q work hard to supplement and enrich our students’ educational experience. Monies from fundraising efforts are used to pay for special assembly programs such as Brain Challenge, a popular “game show” program.

Gifts from the PTA to graduates have included a yearbook for the fifth graders and a special tee-shirt for the kindergarteners.

The PTA also sponsors programs such as Family Arts Nights, Health and Safety Programs, Parent Workshops and many other exciting and informative programs.

The best way to stay informed about what's going on in school and with your children is to attend PTA meetings. Student of the Month Awards are presented at the meetings, and we often have special speakers and community programs as well. Attending meetings and speaking up will also empower you to have your concerns heard and addressed. At PTA meetings, you are invited to raise questions and share comments and/or concerns about school policies and your children.
