The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) holds at least two meetings each month (September to June) - one for the Executive Board (EB) and one for the General Membership (GM).

The official calendar of meetings for the school year is agreed upon at the first PTO Executive Board meeting and posted here when available.

Unless otherwise noted, all meetings will be held in a hybrid format - members may attend in person or join remotely.

Individual committees may also hold meetings.


General Membership

General Membership (GM) meetings are open to all current faculty and families, as well as members of the wider PS9 community.

Meetings are usually held the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm.

Childcare and pizza are available on a donation basis.


Executive Board

Executive Board meetings are open to all members of the Parent Teacher Organization — that is, current teachers and family members / caregivers of students.

Participation in the discussion is restricted to members of the EB, unless decided otherwise by a simple majority of present board members.

Non-PTO members may only attend EB meetings with the approval of the board. If you are not a member of the PTO and would like to attend, please contact our PTO president or parliamentarian.
