PTA Membership Donation Drive

Dear East-West Families,

We hope you are well during these difficult times and appreciate you taking the time to help East-West. The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) plays a vital role in supporting our students and families. We inform all families of education policies and activities through a collaborative union between parents, teachers and administrators The PTA is dedicated to the betterment of our students and our school. The PTA meetings are open to all East-West families and we will be posting the meeting calendar on the East-West website.  Mark your calendars for our virtual November meeting which will take place on November 16th at 6:30 p.m.

It would be wonderful if the NYC DOE funded all of the students’ needs, but we know, especially now, it’s just not a reality.  YOUR SUPPORT AND DONATIONS WILL HELP US CONTINUE OUR WORTHWHILE EFFORTS TOWARD MAKING EAST-WEST THE BEST SCHOOL IT CAN BE. 

Some of our planned activities for this school year include:

  • Scholarships recognizing student achievement
  • Awards ceremonies and presentations
  • School dances and other events, as permitted by the DOE
  • School trips, hopefully a Senior Overnight
  • Holiday festivities and drives
  • Parent trainings 

While we will fund raise for these events by participating in the NYC Vaccine Referral Bonus, holiday bake sales and other sales, and by partnering with World’s Finest Chocolate, the PTA still needs your help. By becoming a contributing member of the PTA, your donation and participation will help us achieve even more for our students. While a  donation is not a requirement for PTA membership,  no gift is too small and all are appreciated.
