PTA and SLT Election News

Nominations for the Parent-Teacher Association Executive Board and School Leadership Team are open!! PTA Exec Board positions are a 1 year term, SLT positions are a 2 year term.

On the SLT you have a direct role shaping the school's Comprehensive Educational Plan with elected Teachers, Parents, Mr. Contarsy, and the PTA President.

On the PTA you will work together with the Parent Coordinator and school Administration to improve the school community, provide parental support, and initiate fundraising events.

Parents may choose to run for both the SLT and PTA if they so choose.

The PTA Exec Board meets two times a month and the SLT meets once a month; all meetings are held in the evening to accommodate work schedules. We are all working parents balancing families and responsibilities and consequently, respect each other’s time. Currently the meetings are held via Zoom; this may be subject to change. The SLT and PTA meeting schedule is set at the beginning of the school year to facilitate ease of planning. 

If you are interested in running for either OR both positions, please contact the Nominations Chairperson at You will be asked to prepare a brief biography that needs to be submitted prior to the May 17th PTA meeting. Nominations will close May 13

On May 17th all Candidates will have 3 minutes to speak at the PTA Meeting. After the Candidates have spoken, Elections will take place.

If you have any additional questions please email our Nominations Chair at or MS74’s Parent Coordinator, JC DiCicco at

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration!
