Support the PTSA: Join Us!

Did you know that membership dues and cash donations help us raise nearly $40,000 towards providing programs, events and infrastructure in our schools? We contributed to the build of the new Dows Lane playground, and we’re planning to bring back Family Bingo & Movie Nights, the Science Fair, the Talent Show, and Spelling Bee, while also funding new grants for clubs, programs and events for our students.

You are a vital part of helping the PTSA enrich and support our schools, teachers and students, so please consider renewing your annual membership ($50) along with an additional donation to help us reach our fundraising goal.

Meet Your School’s PAC Representatives

The Parent Advisory Council or PAC is a forum for parents to anonymously raise questions/concerns or share suggestions with school administrators about topics that impact the District, the school, the grade or a class. Each school (Dows Lane, Main Street School, Irvington Middle School and Irvington High School) has its own PAC which is composed of that school’s principal and assistant principal, and the PTSA Vice Presidents (VP) and Grade Parents

PAC questions can be submitted through a Google Form and parents can opt to remain anonymous. Visit www.irvingtonnyptsa.org/pac to meet your school’s PTSA PAC representatives, check PAC meeting dates, read PAC minutes, and the submit a question or comment to your school’s PAC.
