Parent Teacher Association

One of the greatest strengths of our school is the collaboration among teachers, administration, and families throughout our PTA.  Our responsibilities are to facilitate this partnership and to raise funds to support programs in our classrooms and to build a strong community of involved families and staff.

 All parents of PS186 students are eligible members of the PTA.  As members of the PTA we strongly urge you to donate to our membership drives and participate in our fundraisers.  Without your financial support many of the beloved programs and events our children experience in the school will not be possible.

The PTA meets monthly to provide a forum for all members of our community to ask questions and express ideas and concerns.  All parents/guardians of PS186 students are encouraged to attend all meetings and volunteer for as many PTA activities as possible. Participation any level – big or small – is welcome!



To enhance the educational and social experiences of all Castlewood Elementary students through a partnership with parents, teachers and the 26th School District.
