The PTA is an active and integral part of the PS 8 community. We work hard to provide the best possible education for our children and offer a well-rounded experience with enrichments and extra programming. Everything we do is made possible by volunteers and donations from our parents and greater neighborhood community.

This year, with your support, we will fund:

  • Physical Education Teachers
  • Intervention in Grades K-2
  • Learning Specialists
  • Teaching Assistants
  • Enrichment Residencies (Studio in a School, Marquis Studio, Chess NYC, Guggenheim Learning Through Art, and Brooklyn Music School)
  • Partnership with Bank Street’s Center on Culture, Race & Equity
  • Bridges in Mathematics
  • Recess Assistance
  • Promethean Boards
  • Teacher Grants
  • Staff Development

Covering more than $1,000 per child in program expenses requires a lot of fundraising. Appeals and donations are the most effective way to raise money. 100% of direct donations go to supporting our programs, and your gift is fully tax-deductible. Our tax ID is 11-2578366.

Please check if your company has a matching gift policy. The impact of your gift to PS 8 could be doubled or even tripled!
