PTA Founders' Day Celebration

West Islip Schools celebrated the anniversary of the founding of PTA in New York State, the largest and oldest volunteer organization working exclusively on behalf of children.

Among the purposes of the PTA is to foster a closer relationship between home and district so that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of students.

This month, West Islip School District marked the PTA anniversary with a celebration at the high school, which was attended by over 200 guests, and presented a number of dedicated workers with the Honorary Lifetime Membership Award. Pictured are scenes from the festivities.
