Welcome to Yonkers Montessori Academy PTSA

  • Welcome to the YMA PTSA page! We are dedicated to working with parents, students, teachers, and administrators in making our school the best it can be!

  • Yonkers Montessori Academy's Parent Student Teacher Association (PTSA) advocates for children and their families.  The PTSA represents YMA in the Yonkers PTA Council and notifies school and district administrators about concerns.  In a nutshell, we work to make every child's education better.  We also provide support for the teachers and staff who nurture our children everyday.
     
    The YMA PTSA works to enrich the lives of children. We provide cultural and educational shows, demonstrations and presentations for the entire school.
     
    The YMA PTSA also works to create community within the school. One way the PTSA does this is through social events for the whole family.  Busy parents can spend time with their children and other YMA families and staff while participating in wholesome, low or no cost activities.
     
    The PTSA fosters communication between the home, school and the PTSA.  In this effort, the PTSA sends out regular notices about issues and events to the entire school. YMA PTSA also maintains an e-mail list and uses it regularly to keep parents informed. Parents can also download PTSA notices, forms or minutes by visiting the YMA PTSA website. We also keep in touch through ConnectED phone messages and Facebook. 
     
    YMA PTSA's meetings keep parents informed, provide an opportunity to communicate with our principal and parents the opportunity to meet each other. YMA board meetings and Yonkers Council of PTA Meetings are typically held once a month, while YMA PTSA general membership meetings are held every 2-3 months.  The PTSA also keeps parents informed about Board of Education meetings and city governmental meetings related to school issues.
