Boardman Elementary PTA
170 Beatrice Avenue
Oceanside, NY 11572


The Boardman Elementary School PTA serves as a cornerstone in the#9E building. Our active group of people work tirelessly to support all school programs and to enhance the education of all children. We strive for better school/home communications and to augment the education process whenever possible. Many of our school programs are a success due to our fundraising efforts. Some of the funds we raise goes to enhance our cultural arts program. We try to expose our children to as many different types of programming as possible. We continually work in conjunction with staff to achieve higher standards, encouraging our students to reach their individual potential both academically and socially. m The parents and staff members of our school know the true meaning of the "home-school" connection.
