How would you spend $15,000 to improve PS 139?

Participatory Budgeting at PS 139 – 2020!

The Parent Association and Principal Mary McDonald want you to decide how to spend $15,000 to improve the school, through participatory budgeting (PB)! 

How it works:

  • February 1 – March 6: Share your ideas for how to make the school better. 
  • March 9 – April 26: We work with you to turn your ideas into projects for a ballot.
  • April 27 – May 15: Vote to decide which projects to fund.
  • June 2020 – June 2021: We spend the funds on the winning projects.

Please complete this survey by March 6th, to share the issues you think are most important, and a specific idea or project. You can also view and print the survey in Spanish, Urdu, and other languages here. Everyone who completes the survey will be entered in a raffle to win a $50 gift certificate!


Last year you voted to fund a nature playground, library makeover, and art, running, and soccer clubs – see the full results here. If you have any questions or are available to help out this year, please let us know at Thank you!
