P.S. 183’s PTA is active and involved. The PTA serves as a catalyst for maintaining the warm, nurturing, inclusive community which is so important in educating our children. It also does a great deal of fundraising in support of our educational programs and community building. The PTA is governed by bylaws which are updated as needed in keeping with the Chancellor’s A-660 regulation. The bylaws are available in the PTA office.
