Dear Parents of PS 38!

September 28, 2015


Welcome to the new school year!  We just wanted to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves as the New PTA Executive Board, and to thank you for your continued enthusiasm and support.  Chris Mischler (President) has a daughter in First Grade and is in his second year as a parent at the school.  He has been incredibly involved since day one!  Joanna Schlesser (Secretary) jumped right into school and became a member of the School Leadership Team 3 years ago when her son started Kindergarten.  Jessica D’Agostino (Treasurer) has two children in the school and had a great experience being an involved parent and fundraising committee member last year.


We all chose this school for the same reasons you did: amazing teachers, small class size, the school’s focus on the arts, and because of how involved the parents in the school are - that’s thanks in large part to tireless efforts of our Principal and administration over the past few years!  We intend to take what they started, build upon it, and add to their successes!  


Some of the activities and events we have lined up this year are the Scholastic Book Fair, the PS 38 Carnival, a wine and cheese night for parents and staff, and the PS 38 Read-A Thon!


We welcome all of your thoughts and input.  In doing so, we would like to invite you to the First General PTA meeting. We will discuss the formation of committees, get an update from the Class Parents, vote on a time to have future PTA meetings, and vote on the PTA Bylaws.  Some of the committees we would like to form immediately are:
Communications - assists with communicating information to parents, including distribution of fliers

Enrichment - assists with the organization of the enrichment program

Fundraising - plans and manages various fundraising activities and events throughout the year

Teacher Appreciation - organizes events throughout the year for teachers and staff

Wellness - oversees/advocates for healthy and environmentally responsible choices for the school

Please think about whether you would like to join any of these committees, or, if you have a passion for something you’d like to see in the school, come up with an idea of your own!


Thanks for putting your confidence in us.  We will strive to strengthen our community, both parents and teachers, and continue moving forward.


Chris, Joanna and Jessica


PTA Meeting Date: Thursday, October 8th

2014-2015 School Leadership Team Information

Hello, and welcome to the 2015-2016 school year here at PS 38!  One of the things that makes this community so great is the involvement of all of the parents in the school.  We'd like to let you know about an opportunity to become more involved in your child's schooling and education by letting you know that there are positions available on the School Leadership Team (SLT).  The SLT is a team of people made up of school administration, staff and parents that is charged mainly with writing, revising and implementing the school's Comprehensive Education Plan which is essentially the document which lays out the school's vision, and, via the budget, how the school intends to fulfill that vision.  Becoming part of the team entails doing some online training, attending monthly meetings, and spending time working for the betterment of the school.


There are currently three (3) parent positions available on the SLT.  Elections will be held at 9:30am on October 5th IMMEDIATELY following the Principal's Breakfast in the Cafeteria.  Committee members will be able to decide the best day and time to hold future SLT meetings, but the election will be held on the morning of the 5th.  Please prepare a short statement as to why you believe you would be an asset to the committee.  Even if you do not want to be on the committee, please stay for the election to hear from the candidates and vote on who you would like to represent you, as a parent, on this important committee.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Joanna Schlesser at

Thank you!
