ABOUT PS 84 THE LILLIAN WEBER SCHOOL FOR THE ARTS
P.S. 84 is a Title I neighborhood elementary (K-5) school serving a diverse community, with two programs that host bilingual education in French and Spanish. The school spends much energy learning about other cultures, and in nature has a high awareness of what is happening around the world.
The PTA works closely with the administration of PS 84, parents, foundations, and organizations to help create an enriched elementary school experience. Since PS 84 is the only school in Manhattan to have both Spanish and French dual-language programs, the PTA has a breadth of cultural interests and influences to draw from. Fundraising goals have included supporting the arts and cultural diversity, supplementing science programs, re-opening the library, raising money for new gym equipment, and realizing teachers’ “wish lists” so that each class can pursue individualized projects.
