Parent Involvement Equals Student Acheivement

Welcome to the  P.S. 233-Langston Hughes PTA!


The main goal of our PTA  is to build strong relationships among parents, teachers, and schools, in support of our students. Our PTA is a great organization to support classrooms, teachers, the community, and of course, your own child's experience. We're always looking for volunteers. The best way to be successful is to continue bringing in more go-getters and helpers each year so we can continue to keep ideas fresh. We are working on family engagement events that can be done virtually or in-person depending on the conditions of the pandemic.


Our PTA meetings allow us to share important information about all aspects of our amazing school and to answer any questions you may have. Let's continue to work together and keep our school a vibrant institution of learning for our children and the adults that support them.

Assuring the highest-quality program for all students

Our School Leadership Teams (SLT) is a school-based organization with an equal number of parents and staff. SLT meetings are held at school at least once per month. Mandatory members of the SLT include: the school principal, the PTA president (or designated co-president), and the UFT chapter leader. Parent members of our SLT are nominated by the school’s PTA. Staff members are nominated by their constituents. 


The main responsibility of the SLT is to develop the school’s Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP), which must align with the school-based budget.  Our SLT invites input from various school constituencies to ensure all voices are heard regarding the needs of students. SLT members work together to evaluate how effective the school’s educational programs are, and their impact on student achievement. 

Meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of each month from 5:00 - 7:00 pm.  Meetings will be held virtually until further notice.  A meeting link will be shared on the day of the meeting in Class Dojo. All SLT meetings are open to the public.  Members of the public who wish to attend should contact Ms. Spellman.
