About Us

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) enables parents to understand and work to support and enrich the academic and social life of all the students in partnership with school administration, foster communication between the school and families, and build community. As a parent or guardian of a child attending PS 452, you are automatically a member of the PTA.

What do PTA funds support?
The PTA funds help support teacher development, classroom and library books, technology, music, art and physical education equipment, field trips, and curricular partnerships, including National Dance Institute, Salvadori, Lincoln Center Film Society, and more. Learn more here.

What is the PTA Executive Board and what do they do?
The PTA Executive Board is responsible for the PTA's budget, events, and activities. Officers are elected by parents annually and meet monthly (meetings are open to guests, see calendar) to discuss activities, review budget, and address challenges. There are no qualifications for any office other than to be a parent or guardian of a child attending PS 452.
