PArent Groups

Each school has a Parent-Teacher Organization that provides many opportunities for interested parents and teachers to exchange information and opinions.

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.

NiskyPTO.org website

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 enrichment activities.

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.

PTO e-Directory

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. Register to be included in your school's directory


Interested in volunteering in Niskayuna schools?

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 join us!
To volunteer in a school, contact a school principal.
