Dear PS 261 Families,

Every three years the PTA needs to update its bylaws—the rules that govern its operation.
We need to vote on them at the Annual Meeting, which is this Wednesday, May 23rd, at 5 pm in the garden.
We will also be voting on the PTA Executive Board officers and the proposed budget for the next school year.

If you are interested in seeing the bylaws, click here:

The changes that have been made are that any position on the Executive Board can be shared by co-officers if they run together.


The PS261 Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) supports the education and development of our children by raising money for school materials and activities and providing opportunities for families to get involved with the school.

All of the PTA events and funded projects go to the express purpose of furthering our children’s education. Every parent is automatically on the PTA by being a member of our school community.
