Volunteers, parents & guardians, and new families! Please join the Konstella at PS 111 to stay in touch and make sure you don't miss any important emails from PS 111 PTA and can volunteer for school events.

General Membership Meetings for 2018-2019 (every third Wednesday of the month):
Welcome back to 2018-2019 School Year. We request your generous donation. P.S. 111 is an economically diverse school and every donation counts towards bringing more resources to our children. We are asking that every family give any increment of $111.00 (up to $1,111) or more if you can to our Annual Direct Appeal Campaign. If you are not able to give $111.00, please consider giving an amount that is comfortable for your family.
Where does your money go? In addition to supporting our current programs, our goal for additional funds raised would support the following:
* Teaching Assistants
* Dance Classes
* Teacher Professional Development
Last school year, your cash donations helped us purchase air conditioners for classrooms, pay for an after-class dance program, and pay for Cool Culture pass. Thank you.
Because the PTA is an exempt not-for-profit organization, your contribution would be tax-deductible.
If you wish to donate by monthly installments, please click the PayPal "Subscribe" banner below:
We need your time too!
What's 525,600 minus 60?
“Today, be aware of how you are spending your 1,440 beautiful moments and spend them wisely.” -- Anonymous
We each have 1,440 minutes a day, 10,080 minutes a week, over 43,000 a month, and 525,600 a year.
What if every parent and guardian gave just 60 of those beautiful moments to our school each year? Just one hour in a year. That would still leave you 525,540 minutes to spend elsewhere.
It takes a LOT of parent-power to help make PS 111 the wonderful school it is, and we need your help. If each of us stepped up for just one event each year, the students would benefit greatly. In the classroom or the cafeteria; on field trips or at home; midday or midnight -- there is a role that will work for you. Whether you’re a working parent, a stay-at-home parent, or something in between; a mom or a dad or a guardian; someone who’s never volunteered before or someone who volunteers regularly, you have something to contribute.
Contact any of us at the email on the left, and we'll help you find the perfect match. We need you and a tiny portion of your minutes.
Please also consider attending PTA Executive Board Meetings for 2018-2019, the dates of which will be posted soon. They are generally set for the second Wednesdays of each month. All board meetings begin at 8:30 a.m. Any parent or guardian are welcome to attend.
