PS 340 is truly a remarkable place. Each child is made to feel welcome, heard, and at home. We have extraordinary teachers, a passionate and gifted principal, and exceptionally dedicated and committed families.
Every parent/guardian and teacher of a PS 340 student is automatically a member of the PS 340 Parent Teacher Association (PTA). The PTA endeavors to foster our school’s community by organizing various events and by funding enrichment programs for our children, professional development for our teachers and additional resources for our school.
With the help of the PS 340 community, the following are some examples of the wonderful enrichment programs that we have been able to fund for our children: the Rubin Museum art program, the Whitney Museum art program, Learning-by-Design architecture classes, Take Two film production classes, Music and the Brain keyboard program, the Atlantic Theater Company workshop, and the Steady Buckets basketball program.
PS 340 Ambassadors
In 2021, we started the PS 340 Ambassadors initiative, a group of parents who welcome prospective and new families to our school and community. The PS 340 Ambassadors act as parent resources for prospective and new families at school open houses, orientations, and can provide general information about the school community.
