Welcome to the Pine Bush PTA!

The mission of the PTA is to provide educational and cultural activities that enrich the student's elementary experience at Pine Bush. Our variety of activities include school banking, holiday events, movie nights, cultural performances, book fairs, and a Welcome Back Ice Cream Social to start off the school year. We provide the means to bring authors to our school who speak to our students about their books and careers. We also assist with the Learning Fair, where students have a chance to display projects they've researched. We provide support to the school by maintaining school gardens through our Garden Committee, coordinating library helpers, and through our Wish List opportunity where teachers can ask for equipment or supplies for their classroom. To support all of these efforts, the PTA holds various fund raisers which generate the means to provide our children every opportunity to grow in an enriched educational atmosphere. We invite and welcome your active participation in your child's development at Pine Bush and are confident that you will find your years at the school to be fun-filled and exciting!

Membership

Membership in PTA enables advocacy for children at the local, state and national levels with the goal to secure adequate laws, regulations and policies for the care and protection of children and youth. A portion of your membership dollars go to support these efforts, and the other portion remains here at Pine Bush to support the many educational and cultural activities that help to enrich the students' elementary experience.
