Commit to Positive, Safe Environments for All Students
National PTA is committed to the well-being of our children and ensuring that schools create a safe and inclusive learning environment for all children. On November 22, 2016, National PTA joined other leading education organizations in a national call to action addressing the recent reports of bullying behavior in schools. Every child deserves to come to school excited to learn in a safe and nurturing environment without the fear of bullying, violence or discrimination. This call to action follows National PTA's statement on its commitment to positive, safe environments for all students and a recent webinar on bullying and cyberbullying prevention. It has long been a top priority of National PTA to make sure all children have a supportive environment where they can thrive and learn. We are committed to working with schools, school systems, educators, parents and the community to ensure all children have the opportunity to receive a great education in a setting free from discrimination, harassment and violence.

Tools You Can Use
Join the PTA
PTA Membership 2016-17 - The Chappaqua PTA provides important, enriching programming for students and parents, and provides its members with vital communication tools such as the PTA website and email system (through which all six Chappaqua schools distribute their weekly newsletters). Your dues are used to support programs such as R21K, Learning to Look and Young Writers’ Workshop, as well as special education and parent education programming. Dues are also used to fund membership in the New York State PTA and pay PTA insurance costs; without paying these costs, none of our school PTAs could operate. The annual cost is $15 per household ($7.50 single parent) and $8 for faculty members). To pay by check, click HERE (or for faculty, use this form) . To pay by credit card, click on SHOP in the navigation bar.
Donations - the Chappaqua PTA gratefully accepts tax-deductible donations. For contributions of $100 or more (including membership dues), if you so designate, the PTA will make a donation to its Tom Cardellichio Scholarship Fund, which provides financial assistance to Chappaqua students, enabling them to participate in PTA and school-sponsored activities, as well as need-based college scholarships to Greeley graduates. You can donate by check on the membership form or by credit card in our SHOP.
High School/Middle School Program Fees - In addition to Chappaqua PTA membership, there are school-specific PTA fees that are used to fund the PTA-sponsored programs at a particular school.
