Like with all fundraising in a public school, money raised in auctions/events like these, fund our classrooms and makes up for budget cuts. At PPAS, the PTA additionally provides funding for major performances and productions, the musical theater, drama, dance, vocal and all middle school performances, as well as many extra-curricular performances and events.


Your donations support our young artists and keep our Arts Partnerships going. - Waterwell, Rosie’s Theater kids, The Ailey School, &The National Chorale would not be the same without your help.
