Dear Parents & Teachers,
It is hard to believe that another school year has ended and we are about to approach another. I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Dawn Port and I am the newly elected President for the PTA. My son has attended P373 since kindergarten, first at the “J” building at Petrides for 3 years and the past 2 years at the main. I am a business owner based in Staten Island, have served as Vice President on the PTA for 1-1/2 years, the School Leadership Team for 1 year, now serving the second year, and was recently nominated as Secretary for the Presidents Council for District 75.
I feel my contacts and experiences will be beneficial for the school community, parents, and businesses to work for the benefit of our children.
The newly elected PTA Executive Board has been actively communicating during the past weeks and many discussions have taken place regarding the future of the PTA and its impact in the school. Ideas have been tossed around and various events and different fundraisers have been in the works. There are different venues in consideration to help the PTA to be more active in all our sites and to equally provide support and resources, involvement, training and educational growth.
I look forward to meeting with all of you in September and embark on this journey together.
Have a safe and happy summer.
Dawn Port, P373 PTA President
