Attention CPAs, accountants, and finance folks – we are particularly in need of Treasurers! 
You don’t have to be an accountant to qualify, but if you are, or have worked on finances for a charity or a non-profit, or are just great with numbers, the PTA needs you!

Drinking Water in NYC Schools
In light of recent events nationally and regionally that have raised awareness, concern, and questions about lead levels in drinking water, we want to assure you that the water in New York City—and in our school—is extraordinarily safe. New York City’s water is of the highest quality, meeting or exceeding all federal and State standards.
