Most people know what the PTA is (Parent Teacher Association), but most people don't realize how much this organization does for the students as well as the faculty and staff at Pawling Elementary School. It is incredible how far reaching the work of the PTA is...but even more incredible when you realize that everything this organization accomplishes is through fundraising and membership dollars--NOT through school tax dollars! From school photos and the yearbook, to educational assemblies and programs during the school day that support the curriculum, to promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in conjunction with the Health and Wellness Committee, to showing our support to teachers and staff, to Spiritwear sales and snacks at Field Day, and so much more...the PTA at PES works tirelessly to ensure our children have a memorable, enriched beginning as they start down the path on their journey to success.
The PTA at PES is fortunate to have the support of over 50 local merchants who each year contribute merchandise and donate financially for the benefit of our school. The PTA would like to thank the Pawling business community for their ongoing support. We encourage our PTA members to use the PTA Local Merchant Discount Program (included with $10 membership card) and support our local economy. Please check out the Pawling PTA Facebook page for a list of local merchant supporters, the discounts they offer our members, and to fill out your PTA membership application if you have not already done so. Please help support our school and our children. Join the PTA and help make a difference. Thank you.
