Please join the Rhame Avenue PTA!
PTA stands for Parent Teacher Association. Who better to advocate for our children than parents and teachers working together?

Your membership supports assemblies and activities for your children. It's ok if you don't have the time to attend meetings or volunteer at these activities. Your support as a paid dues member is valued enough and very much appreciated.

PTA members can save money on everyday purchases thanks to National PTA's Member Benefits Provider Program. To learn more visit the New York State PTA website at

Annual dues are just $10 per person. Sign up today!

Please contact Wendy Sirchia (917) 952-4849 with any questions.
