About The PA
WHO IS THE PARENTS' ASSOCIATION?
YOU ARE! First and foremost, YOU are the Parents' Association! Every parent or guardian of a child at P.S. 144 is automatically a member. The PA Executive Board and Chairs are parent volunteers, just like you, and we rely on every parent to be successful.
WHAT DOES THE PARENTS' ASSOCIATION DO?
ENRICHMENT PROGRAMMING for all P.S. 144 students includes grade-appropriate hands-on opportunities in fine arts, music & movement, science & technology and wellness. The Parents' Association works closely with the school administration and faculty to select and fun classes like puppetry, drumming, art with the Guggenheim and The Queens Museum, music history and theory and so much more. To see past enrichment programs by grade please visit enrichment programs. These programs are solely funded and made possible by parent donations!
EVENTS - Throughout the year, the P.A. organizes fundraisers and community building events to help students and parents get to know each other, such as the Back to School Play Date, Halloween Spooktacular, Talent Show and more.
ADVOCACY - The Parents' Association takes on causes that support the safety and happiness of all students, such as ensuring safety around the school at drop-off and dismissal, campaigning for building upgrades, and working closely with the school administration.
