Recognition Night - May 28, 2013

June 13, 2013


All Meetings are at 7:00 pm at the District Administrative Offices,

135 WEst Crooked Hill Road, Pearl River, NY




Come and share information with parents and staff about programs that have been beneficial to your child. If you have questions please come and speak to other parents who may have been through a similar situation and can help lead you in the right direction.


Communicating and sharing information with each other will make a positive difference.

We have a few fundraising programs during the year. The purpose of these fundraising events is to provide speakers to help inform our parents about programs in our community and present scholarships to classified students that are nominated by the staff each year. We can't do this without the generousity of our parents.

Thank you.






It is NEVER to late to join!!!!


Special Education PTA membership is $10.00 per person.  Becoming a member of the Special Education PTA is important.  We hope to assist each other in becoming an educated, confident and comfortable participant in our children’s education.  We will work to bring the relationship between home and school closer so that parents and teachers may cooperate effectively in the education of our children.


Please send a check made payable to Pearl River SEPTA along with your name, email address and school

that your child or children attend in an enveloped addressed to PR SEPTA.

Thank you.





We need parents to volunteer their time to be parent members.  This is an important support system for us.  There are training classes offered by BOCES.  This is a great learning experience for yourself and important support for other parents.  If you would like to be a parent member, please contact Carolyn Moffa 620-3940.









New York State Parks - Access Pass

An Access Pass permits residents of New York State with permanent disabilities, as defined in the application, free use of the parks, historic sites, and recreational facilities operated by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (State Parks) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). The pass holder may have free use of facilities operated by State Parks and DEC for which there is normally a charge.

The Pass, however, is not valid at facilities within parks operated by private concerns under contract to the State, or for a waiver of fees such as those for seasonal marina dockage, for a group camp, for reservations of a picnic shelter, for performing arts programs, for consumables (i.e. firewood, electric, or gas), for campsite/cabin amenities, or for fees related to campsite/cabin reservations and registrations.

Individual Access Pass

To qualify for an Individual Access Pass, an applicant must be a resident of New York State, must provide proof of disability, in the form of certification from the appropriate agency or by a physician, as described on the application and must provide a recent photo that will be affixed to the Access Pass.







 A great benefit from the National Forestry & Wildlife Division.

You may or may not know about.

It is a free lifetime access pass for any person with a disability or for the caregivers of a person with a disability. It allows access to ALL national parks for free.

All that is required is a letter from the physician stating the disability and you take it to your local National Forestry & Wildlife Division to get the pass. Each pass will admit up to 4 adults and children under 16 are always free. This link answers all the questions:
