One of the key factors that make PS 145 a successful school is help from our families. With a strong Parent Association (PA) and active parents, we can accomplish a lot to enhance students’ education. There are many opportunities for parents to engage with teachers, administration and fellow parents inside and outside the school at fundraising, school spirit and educational events. The PS 145 Parent Association (PA) organizes most of these events.
Every parent at PS 145 is a member of the PA and is encouraged to be an active participant. Parent involvement is vital to our school’s success. Budget cuts have affected all public schools in NYC, making it necessary for the PA to raise funds to ensure that children can expect even basic necessities such as:
Teaching Assistants (TAs) - Math & reading coaches -
Librarian & library supplies
Recess aides & enrichment
Garden teacher & garden supplies
Nursing supplies & health programs
PS 145 IS OUR SCHOOL
PS 145 has 400 students ranging from ages 4 - 11 and with the help of our parents we can work to ensure that all of our children get the very best education available.
LET'S MAKE IT BETTER
