Volunteering Opportunities

Being a member of a PS 183 committee is such a great way to keep a better pulse on the happenings in your child’s class and events going on within the school community.
To that end, below is a list of PTA committees. Many committee chair spots are left open to allow incoming parents a chance to get involved and really make a difference at PS 183. Committees also need volunteers to help out with their events. Whether you can attend one meeting or many, offer ideas, help set up, etc., the committee chairs would love to know there are others to support them. Please look through the list and reach out directly! If you have any questions, please email Cara Gelfand at pta@ps183.org
