PAMES The ‘Source’ for Resource Night

Park Avenue Elementary was the spot of a special event designed to bring organizations and members of the community under one roof. The inaugural “Parent Resource Night” was the brainchild of the Amityville Parent-Teacher Council (APTC).

From church organizations and youth soccer leagues, to martial arts and dance studios, more than a dozen tables lined the perimeter of the Park Avenue Elementary School gymnasium, handing out flyers and signing up interested participants. Meanwhile, in the adjoining auditorium, behavioral therapist Adam Holstein and Barbara Cooper from Resources for Kids’ Success held a special education workshop for parents whose children have just begun the new school year.

This is the first networking event of its kind for the APTC, and President Maresa Dealy expects the resource night to become an annual fixture.

Amityville teachers, administrators and school board members were on hand, manning tables and greeting the parents as they arrived. District leaders at the event included Superintendent Dr. Mary Kelly, Interim Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Dr. Joan Lange, Board of Education President Lisa Johnson and trustees Carolyn Dodd, Nathan King and Jeanette Santos.
