The Parent Association (PA) at PS 139 brings parents together to organize and fund amazing programs, activities, and events to improve the school and support students. All parents of students currently attending the school are members of the Parent Association. Parents include parents by birth or adoption, step-parents, legally appointed guardians, foster parents, and persons in parental relation to a child.
All parents are invited to join one of the existing committees or create a new one.
