Parent-Teacher Association / Family-Teacher Association


The mission of our Family-Teacher association (FTA) is to expand and enhance the opportunities for education and personal growth available to each student at PS 295. This takes many forms:

  • By planning events and programs that bring our diverse school family together to get to know each other.

  • By raising funds through events, programs, donations and grants to help the school provide programs in areas like music, dance and technology.

  • By helping our school community understand the opportunities available to them and by making sure their needs and concerns are understood and addressed by the school’s leadership.​

Each spring, the FTA membership elects parents and caregivers to serve on the Executive Committee (EC). Terms last one year with a two-year limit. The EC meets once each month to discuss FTA business, events and programs, as well as various issues in the school and its community. You should feel free to contact your EC members any time you have questions or issues. EC meetings are held once a month in addition to regular monthly FTA meetings.

FTA / PTA By Laws: English; Spanish; Chinese; Korean ; French.
