Family and Community Involvement is a central theme for PS 24. Our school has a rich history of an active, engaged parent body which has always sought to find ways to support the school’s mission and provide added resources to enhance and enrich our children’s education. The parent volunteer program will provide a regularly rotating volunteer group to assist school aides at critical periods during the day. All volunteers must pass a background check. The Parents Association will pay for it. The link for the background check is below.
