P.S. 111 PTA

We are the official PTA of P.S. 111 Adolph S. Ochs, a community-centered, neighborhood elementary school in Hell's Kitchen, New York.

We enhance the education of every PS 111 student, while building relationships between the school and our families. Thank you to our donors & volunteers for supporting our children!

Through our partnership with the school, we support:

  • Our students, with multiple free in-school programs, and a free book for every child during the Book Fair.
  • Our classrooms, with books, materials, and supplies, including, in 2024, dozens of books and nine beautiful large new rugs.
  • Our teachers & staff, through appreciation events.
  • Our school spirit, through student & family engagement events, including movie nights!
  • Our neighborhood, with the PS 111 Spring Carnival.
  • Our school's infrastructure, by replacing the broken science room air conditioner & purchasing large rugs for the classrooms.
