About the PTA

  Child advocacy, parent education, and fun are the goals of the Link PTA.  PTA members work together to see that these goals are achieved.  PTA meetings are an excellent forum in which to interact with the principal, teachers, and parents.  Relevant information on varying health, safety, and educational matters are discussed and also incorporated into our programs throughout the year.

Our fundraising efforts (Membership Drive, Book Fairs, Spirit Wear sales, KidStuff books, etc.) help support the many extensive and educational Cultural Arts programs that your children participate in throughout the year.  Other activities include our Welcome Back BBQ, Parents as Reading Partners (PARP), Reflections, International Night, and other specialized fifth grade activities for our students moving up to Middle School.  Your support with these programs and activities is greatly appreciated.

In the Spring, we acknowledge the accomplishments of our teachers and Link family at our annual PTA Founders Day celebration.  PTA New York State Honorary Life Membership awards are presented and scholarships are awarded to past Link elementary students graduating from Clarkstown South High School.

The hard work and dedication of many people is necessary for a successful PTA.  Get involved with the PTA and help enhance your child’s learning experience.  Meetings are typically held every other month in the Link library and all are welcome.  Bring your ideas and enthusiasm to make a difference.  Please verify dates with the district calendar or the calendar on this site. Looking forward to seeing you there!

WHAT IS THE PTA?

  • PTA is the nation’s original parent group in schools. We are the nation’s premier resource for parent involvement.
  • PTA is a national, grassroots, not-for-profit association; neither the association nor its leaders make any profit or receive any financial benefit from PTA activities.
  • PTA is run by volunteers and led by volunteers, and we are accountable to our members, parents, and schools.
  • Members receive the information and training they need to advocate effectively at the local, level for funding, programs, and services for their schools.
  • PTA is an inclusive association that is open to all those who care about children -and schools.
