The PTA is involved in advocating for our children. One of the ways we do this is though our participation in the Rivertown Parents Group and the Suburban New York (Formerly Lower Westchester) Education Consortium.
Our PTA has joined the New York Suburban Consortium for Public Education (formerly the Lower Westchester Education Consortium), a group of PTAs, dedicated parents and school district administrators from Westchester, Putnam, Rockland Counties and other counties in the Hudson Valley and Long Island. Our last meeting was called to discuss letters for a letter writing campaign on three important issues. Please review the three letters below about the issues that threaten to compromise our children’s education, and – if you agree – send one or more letters to our state leaders. It is critical that our representatives hear your voice! What can you do? Read the letters and learn about the issues. Learn about the issues that threaten to compromise our children’s education and then make your voices heard. Please join us in asking your state legislators to do what they promised.
We encourage you to review the letters and – if you agree – send one, two or all three of the letters to our state leaders. You may print them out and send them into school in your child’s backpack, or please give them to your grade level VP. We will collect all letters and send them in to our representatives. Or, you may email them to our Representatives. Their email information is below. We must send these letters to our legislators before the end of the year. The legislators need to know that parents do not want their children to lose valuable programs because of their inaction. Please tell our legislators to ACT NOW!
