Oceanside Middle School PTA
186 Alice Avenue
Oceanside, NY 11572


All PTA’s work towards increasing parent involvement and we the parents of the Oceanside Middle School intend to continue in this effort. Parent involvement has proven to enhance the education of our children.

One of our major goals this year has been community service and involvement. Now that the children are in the Middle school, they can assist in an effort to better the community they live in. Helping others can only serve to enrich our childrens lives. The hopes and dreams of all our Middle school children can be a very effective force in making our community a better place to live. Through the dream of one student, eighth grader Ryan Juliano, the participation of the entire middle school community in the “Make a Wish” foundation became a reality. Beginning in October donation containers began circulating the school. Before long the entire student body, school staff and PTA were joining in Ryan’s dream to make the wish of a terminally ill child a reality. This is but one example of the many ways our student body and PTA work together to best serve the middle school community.
