Hi everyone. Critical to our fundraising efforts is the Annual Appeal, where we raise money essential for our kids and school. Our goal is to get all families to contribute to the PTA. In addition to mailers and notices on our website, the PTA runs a phone-a-thon to reach out to families which have not yet contributed.

This year, we are going to be running the Phone-A-Thon the week of December 14th, in the evenings. And because of Covid, calls will be made from the homes of volunteers. How easy!

We are looking for volunteers to help us call families. We will provide you will a list of names to call, scripts, etc. All we need is your help dialing a few dozen families over a 3-day period.

If you can help, it would be greatly appreciated. Please reach out to Eric Weinberg (ericweinbergny@gmail.com) or Niki Singh (singhofniki@gmail.com).

Thanks, 

Niki and Eric (PTA of HSAS Fundraising co-Chairs)
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2020 IS GIVING TUESDAY!
There are so many ways you can help support the PTA of HSAS. We understand that in these difficult times resources are limited. However, the School still needs the support of the PTA. Please, click on the Donate Now Button below and give what you can. The PTA, the School, and, especially, the Kids, thank you.
The PTA of HSAS is here to help create a welcoming and supportive school community. As part of our mission, we help fund educational enrichment opportunities for our outstanding student body. Over the past years, the DOE’s funding of our school has shrunk. In light of the impact of the COVID crisis on the City’s budget, we are expecting further reductions to the funding of many of the programs and activities that make HSAS a top school and a thriving educational community. We anticipate the school will rely heavily on the PTA to help support items like:

  • Lehman College Tuition for the 11th and 12th Grades
  • Guidance Counseling
  • Art & Science Supplies
  • Sport Teams & Extracurricular Clubs
  • College Fairs, Freshmen Orientation, Class Trips (crossing our fingers), Graduation and more.

While we understand that these are difficult times, we need your support. Please give what you can
