Help with the Art to Remember Fundraiser!
Parents Needed to Distribute Artwork Orders

We’ll need a team of 2-3 parents at each elementary school to sort and distribute orders once they come back from Art to Remember. This will take place at Woodside, Oakside, and Hillcrest on May 4th during the school day.
If you would like to participate, please email fundraising@peekskillpto.org.

Be a Room Parent!
Parents of Children in Grades preK through 5th are Invited to Participate
If you enjoy working directly with teachers and students, this is a fabulous opportunity to get involved in your child’s school.

Room Parents work with teachers and other parents to support and build community within the classroom and between fellow parents and the PTO. Serving as Room Parent is an excellent opportunity to connect to your child’s class and to be involved in both the classroom and student/family community. Ideally, every elementary class will have two class parents.

If you would like to volunteer as a room parent, please sign-up here.

For more information about the program, email our Classroom Parent Committee Chairs at roomparents@peekskillpto.org.

Thank you for volunteering to help in our schools! With your support, we can ensure that the Peekskill City School District can offer each and every child in our community the opportunity to enjoy fun and engaging school activities at ALL grade levels.
