Welcome Families!

The PS 89 PTA Executive Board feels so lucky to have our children attend PS 89!  We have an award-winning principal and world-class teachers, who keep their students engaged and excited to learn. We welcome programs to the school that explores the world beyond the core curriculum. We have a well-stocked library and classrooms filled with books that inspire our kids to read.  In addition, we have a community that supports the school by volunteering and donating

Every parent, guardian, or person in a parental relationship with a student at PS89 is a defacto member of the PS89 PTA.  All members are welcome and encouraged to attend the monthly PTA general membership and the Executive Board meetings.  

Please feel free to reach out to the members of the PTA Executive Board with any questions, or concerns, or to volunteer through or the e-mail addresses below.
