Hello to all new and returning PS 58 families!
Welcome to the PS 58 Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
You are automatically a member of the PTA, just by having a child at PS 58.
We are a very active parent body and this school would look and feel very different without the PTA and your involvement. You are encouraged to attend monthly meetings: hear the Principal’s Report, review the current budget, vote on proposals and learn about upcoming events.
Fundraising is a big part of what we do. Why? NYC school budgets do not include funds for so many of the vital resources and experiences we want for our children.
PTA roles and goals:
The PTA uses Konstella to communicate with families and to organize volunteers. Please become a member of your child or children’s class groups at www.Konstella.com (external link). Get news about PTA events and fundraising and learn how to participate in and contribute to community, fund-raising, and classroom events.
Being on Konstella is a great way to get involved in the action at PS 58 right away. (If you don’t have access to email, please leave a note for the Volunteer Coordinators in their PTA mail-box in the main office and they will be in touch.) To join Konstella for the first time, wait for the invitation from your child’s Class Parent in October, or send an email to PS 58 PTA Konstella administrator, Zach Knower at email@example.com.
Please join us at monthly meetings and hear about the exciting things we are working on for this school year. Complimentary refreshments will be provided. Childcare is available. Dates are posted on the backpack calendar and at the website. Reminders are sent by email. Looking forward meeting! Please feel free to contact us with any comments or questions.
