The PS 99 Parents’ Association is a volunteer-run organization whose aim is to facilitate parental participation, and provide support to teachers and staff with tools to help enrich our children‘s education.
We serve to act as a voice for the families, and to build a sense of community among the parents and educators. The PA Executive Board is made up of, (and is elected by) parents of children currently enrolled at PS 99. The board also organizes events, and hosts fund raising activities to help support teachers’ wish lists, items that might not be covered by the City.
