This year’s Membership Drive is asking only $150 per student in order to provide our children with these and other great programming + general operating expenses of the PTA. We’ve divided the budget by the number of enrolled students in order to share the expense of our children’s enhanced school experience equally. *(Please Note: All donations are completely voluntary).
Please consider making any contribution you feel comfortable giving toward our children’s continued enrichment. We all want to participate fully in our children’s experience, this is a powerful way to affect their programs.
As a parent or guardian at PS 98 you are automatically a member of the PTA. Your contributions to the membership drive show your support of curriculum and enrichment programs that our children receive through the year.
The PTA relies on the generous donations of its families in order to continue to offer the following programs that benefit our children and families:
- Ashcan Art Studio – artistic instructional program aligned for each grade with the PS 98 S.T.E.A.M. curriculum. It is 14 sessions of 60 minutes each. The Fall/Winter classes for 3/4/5 grades; Winter/Spring for K/1/2 grades (Cost: $25,320)
- Midori and Friends – diverse cultural workshops with music and/or dance overseen by Mr. Adams (Cost: $3,000)
- Basketball Diaries – a presentation and interactional workshop by a Guinness World Record holding basketball spinner, that teaches perseverance and work ethic using basketball skills and his inspiring life story (Cost: $525)
- Blue Ribbon Celebration – December 8, 2016 there will be a celebration of our beloved P.S. 98 having received the Blue Ribbon Award as an Exemplary High Performing School.
