Welcome to the Pine Bush PTA!

The Pine Bush PTA aims to enrich the academic, cultural, and social experience of all students. We work cooperatively with fellow parents, administration, and teachers to achieve our goals and to strengthen our school community as a whole. We organize fundraisers throughout the year to support our various programs and events, which include holiday parties, visiting authors, cultural arts programs, classroom supplies for teachers, movie nights, student banking, and much more!

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.
