About PTA 關於家長會
The PS184 Shuang Wen School’s Parent Teacher Association is led by parent volunteers who are committed to help build PS184’s community, and raise additional funds to benefit the education, health, and safety of all students. The elected members of the PTA Executive Board use their skills and volunteer hours to support the PTA mission, and we thank this year’s Board for working cooperatively with families and the school, and for taking charge of fundraising and events which have made a big impact on the quality of student life. This year, the PTA supported the education of students with enrichment programs such as Cool Culture museum visits by our youngest students, a new Theater Club for our elementary school students, and a new Debate Club for our middle school students; as well as field trips to visit architecture firms and extra materials for our art and music departments that will benefit all grades from PK-Grade 8. To support the health of students, the PTA provided extra sports coaching and equipment to promote active recess time, lice checks to prevent further outbreaks, and provided useful extra equipment for the school's OT/PT team. In order to support our teachers, the PTA also hosted staff appreciation lunches, and paid for supplemental books and teacher training classes to raise the quality of instruction at our school. To serve our PS184 community better, the PTA also organized parent volunteers to maintain the library as a valuable Chinese and English resource, and hosted family fun events each month to bring our community closer together. Responsibilities: The PTA is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and must abide by its By-Laws and IRS rules governing 501(c)(3) in order to use our 501(c)3 status to apply for external grants and ask for donations. The elected PTA Executive Board Members have a meeting each month and vote on topics during at Executive Board meetings.
