Getting involved in your school community is easy and fun when you volunteer with the Irvington NY PTSA. We welcome everyone's participation. No matter what your availability is next school year, we can find a role for you. All volunteer opportunities come with support and training.
We are currently recruiting volunteers for a number of leadership positions for the 2021-2022 school year.
The Irvington NY PTSA is excited to roll out a new platform that will bring big benefits to our community.
We are moving much of our operations over to MemberHub, a popular online platform for PTSAs across the country. We're making this move in order to streamline our communications and more efficiently run our programs, events, and committees and most importantly make it easier for YOU to communicate with us, each other and our community. Going forward, you can consider MemberHub your one-stop-shop, single source of truth for all things PTSA.
In partnership with Irvington High School, we are offering a number of fun ways to celebrate the class of 2021.
The Irvington PTSA in partnership with the Irvington Union Free School District is excited to host two live Zoom events with Judith Warner, a New York Times best-selling author of “And Then They Stopped Talking to Me: Making Sense of Middle School”
Through the stories of kids and parents in the middle school trenches, Warner reveals why these years are so painful, how parents unwittingly make them worse, and what we all need to do to grow up. With deep insight and compassion, Warner walks us through a new understanding of the role that middle school plays in all our lives and argues that today’s helicopter parents are overly concerned with status and achievement—in some ways a residual effect of their own middle school experiences—and that this worsens the self-consciousness, self-absorption, and social “sorting” so typical of early adolescence.
Join the PTSA for our annual spring fundraiser, celebrating and supporting our schools and our community.
Each year, our annual Spring Luncheon provides an opportunity for our community to gather, hear from interesting speakers, share a meal, and shop. This year we have created a virtual version of our annual event to capture the spirit of what we all loved and enjoyed in the past while remaining safe.

Good news! We've extended the deadline to apply for PTSA scholarships to April 1, 2021.
For decades the Irvington NY PTSA has awarded scholarships to graduating seniors who have made a commitment to continuing their education. This year the PTSA will award five $2000 PTSA Scholarship Awards to graduating seniors. In addition, applicants will also be considered for the Michele Buell Memorial PTSA Scholarship ($2000). Awards are paid directly to the recipient upon successful completion of the first semester in college.
The Executive Committee of the Irvington NY PTSA serves as our leadership board and has fiscal responsibility for our operations. Roles on the Executive Committee provide a great volunteer leadership opportunity that can have a real impact on our school community. Each year, we run a selection process to nominate and elect new members of our committee. This year's process is now open! Read on to learn more about how our process works, and how you can get involved in PTSA leadership.
Each year, the Irvington NY PTSA partners with Square 1 Art to help foster creativity in our school community while supporting our work in the schools. If you've never participated before, it's simple and easy to get started.
Reminder: The deadline to submit art work online for IMS and IHS is February 5, 2021. For Dows Lane, the deadline has been extended to February 1.
First, create a work of art.
After your art work is processed, you'll receive details on how to purchase keepsakes and gifts featuring your child's art! Every order will profit your school. Please note that, this year, purchased items can be shipped to your home only, not to the school.
For questions or if you need support, please email Marianne Chafizadeh or Stacy Ciaravella at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy New Year from your SCAFLD co-chairs, Alejandro and Stacey! We hope that despite the current challenges we all face you remain healthy and happy. SCAFLD is a PTSA group created by parents/guardians in Irvington who have a child(ren) with learning differences, including (but not limited to!) those students with an IEP or 504. All parents/guardians are welcome!
TELL US WHAT YOU THINK
In order to better serve our community the SCAFLD committee would love to hear from you. Please fill out the survey which is strictly confidential. Tell us what you want, what we can do better and share your expertise with us! We want to hear from you!
CAN YOU HELP?
We want to provide a role for you in our group no matter your schedule or ability to commit and we want to connect our Irvington families. Sharing common experiences and lending an ear is always helpful. Younger families or families new to the district who have children with learning differences sometimes have questions or are in need of some support. Would you be available to listen to or chat with people who have questions? Please indicate your interest when you complete the survey, or send us an email at email@example.com.
We would love to connect and see you, even at distance! We have two virtual meetings planned where we hope to learn how your year is going, hear your feedback and grow our community. We have an evening Zoom planned for February 2nd at 7:30pm and a daytime zoom scheduled for March 2nd at 9:30am. Even if you can only make it for a little while, we would love to see you!
