WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES: PTA FEES + FUNDS

There is no fee to be a member of BHSEC Queens PTA; however, parents are asked to donate $30 a month ($300 a year) to support the programs that the PTA funds. This donation is voluntary.  The PTA pays for the planners given to every student, seminar books that the students keep, caters dinner for the faculty on Parent-Teacher Nights, provides funding for student clubs among many other things.  The more money the PTA raises, the more the school benefits.  The PTA budget is decided upon by the parents with input from the principal as to the needs of the school.  The yearly budget is approved by the PTA membership and changes can be voted on at the PTA General meetings.
