An active PTA is a critical part of the public school experience. Irvington's PTA supports the mission and objectives of the national PTA, which strives to support children and their families in all areas of education. Irvington's PTA raises over $100,000 annually for music and art programs, field trips, playground enhancements, special events and classroom supplies. By becoming a member of Irvington's PTA, you add your voice and your support to our school community. Monthly meetings provide a chance for parents and teachers to make key decisions about their school, and occasional guest speakers help inform and educate PTA members about topics ranging from school funding to math activities for kids.
All members of our school community are all invited to join the PTA. Membership dues are a $10 donation per year but can be waived for financial hardship. You do NOT have to be a PTA member to attend PTA meetings and make your voice heard. Please join us!
Irvington PTA maintains its own website at www.irvingtonschool.com. Please visit our site and learn more about Irvington and our community.
