Message from the PS 65 PTA
Due to insufficient interest in tonight's meeting, we will move the PTA election to coincide with our June meeting instead.
The meeting is to be held on June 15th at 6:30pm.
In order to have a functioning PTA for next school year, we need at least three parents to volunteer. Consider running for any of the positions open. Visit the PTA Election page for more information.
Please email Ms. Taverna, PTA President to express interest at 31R065PA@schools.nyc.gov and fill out the Willingness to Serve Form.

Mindfulness Classes at Parent University
Mindfulness is emerging in public education based on 60 years of teachers, parents, and families discovering and utilizing these strategies of stress management, attentional focus, awareness, acceptance, and self-regulation to:
- Stay with & realize solutions to personal and public challenges and changes
- Increase one's capacity to notice and appreciate life in ways that support resilience
- Support joyful learning and growth
- Develop critical thinking skills
Join us each Tuesday and Thursday at 7:30pm as we build community and harness the power of self-care and self-healing through the discovery of the conscious breath, meditation, and movement.
