The Port Washington Parents’ Council is the coordinating board of all our schools’ HSAs and PTAs. On behalf of all the children in the district, it seeks to explore and reach consensus on issues and topics of general interest and/or common concern among the five elementary schools, the middle school and the high school.

In practice, this is what the Parents’ Council does:

  • Holds forums with the Superintendent, other district administrators, and educational experts to inform parents about such topics as curriculum and instruction, technology, school finances, and social issues facing students.
  • Helps to educate parents on the school budget and works with all the HSAs and PTAs to get out the vote on the budget and other school elections.
  • Coordinates outreach efforts, including the Winter Coat Drive, Holiday Gift Drive, and Spring Clothing Drive, on behalf of less fortunate families in our community.For more information, please contact Co-Presidents Meredith Steigman meredith72@me.com and Julie Epstein julieepstein@me.com
