Each school has a Parent-Teacher Organization that provides many
opportunities for interested parents and teachers to exchange information
Each PTO sponsors a range of programs and events throughout the school year, including assemblies, cultural arts programs, after-school enrichment activities, reading programs and recreational activities. Evening PTO meetings are listed on the district calendar.
To get involved, contact your child's school PTO president(s). Contact information and information about each respective school's PTO is available via the links to the right.
The NiskyPTO.org website was established in the fall of 2006. Its mission
is to provide a centralized information resource for all Niskayuna PTO
communications, thereby bridging the gap between school and home for student
Recently, the site was redesigned by its volunteers. The biggest change is the new PTO Bulletin Board. The Bulletin Board is a PTO-moderated communication service that allows members to post calendar events, homepage announcements, and email distributions. Another big change is NiskyPTO's "going green" initiative, in which traditional paper forms and newsletters are posted online or emailed rather than printed and mailed home. The PTO also invites parents, teachers, and students to subscribe to mailing lists for each school. Subscribers get a two-week agenda of events every Sunday by email.

Niskayuna PTOs also maintain school directories. Starting in the 2014-15
school year, these directories will be based upon information that parents
submit through a new "e-Directory" service and allows families to conveniently
manage contact information.

Volunteers are continually sought to help throughout the Niskayuna
Central School District. Parents and community are needed to help directly
in classrooms, such as for reading to students. Volunteers are also needed
to serve on district-wide committees to assist in district planning. Please
To volunteer in a school, contact a school principal.
