GOTHAM AVENUE SCHOOL WELCOMES CLASS PARENTS AT ANNUAL TEA

GOTHAM AVENUE SCHOOL WELCOMES CLASS PARENTS AT ANNUAL TEA

Elmont, Oct. 8, 2008 – Gotham Avenue School’s PTA welcomed this year’s class parents at the school’s annual afternoon tea. Each year the school and PTA work hand in hand to involve parents in school activities – the class parent is an integral part of that process.

            “Gotham takes great pride in bridging the gap between home and school on a daily basis,” said Dennis Cowan. “This is just one small example of the cooperation between our school and the PTA.”

            The school is delighted to have 34 class parents this year. They volunteer their time and will be on hand for PTA events, class trips and school celebrations. The class parent also helps spread the word about important issues to other parents and teachers really appreciate their help.

            The mission of the Elmont Union Free School District is to “reach and teach for excellence,” which means continually improving instruction and increasing student achievement. Dedication to this goal is what has earned Elmont New York state recognition for its “High Performing/Gap Closing Schools,” and as a state “model for

school success.” In partnership with the community, the district holds its students to the highest standards while maintaining one of the lowest per-pupil expenditures in Nassau County.
