2023-2024 PTSA Initiatives at Daniel Warren

Each year, the PTSA works to raise money to benefit ALL Rye Neck students. Here's what we've been up to at DW!

Community Building Events

The Rye Neck PTSA prides itself on bringing the community together. At Daniel Warren, we kick off the school year with our annual Chalk the Walk, and keep the momentum going with events such as Family Activity Nights, Walk to School Week (timed with Earth Day), and free speakers for parents. We also partner with the Rye Neck International Committee to showcase the amazing cultural diversity in our district.

Engaging Assemblies & Speakers

Each year, the PTSA funds enrichment opportunities at Daniel Warren. This year, we've paid for visits from Animal Embassy, the Tanglewood Marionettes, Bash the Trash, the Chinese Cultural Center of New York, and a pop-up Planetarium from Mobile Ed.

Hands-On Enrichment Activities

In addition to our in-school STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) Enrichment, we host After School Clubs, Grade-specific Playdates and organized events such as:

  • Book Fair Activity Night 

  • Halloween Costume Exchange Playdate

  • Sports Equipment Exchange Playdate

  • Peace Garden events in the fall and spring 

Community-Based Donations and Drives

While all of the funds the PTSA raise go directly back to our students, we also strive to teach children about the importance of giving back. In 2023-24 we hosted:

Parent Volunteer Opportunities

The PTSA partners with the school administration to recruit Class Parents and organize in-class celebrations throughout the year. Parents are also invited to sign up to help children learn how to compost during lunch time. Fall and spring offer volunteer opportunities in the Daniel Warren Peace Garden two days a week. 

Parent Social Events

We host a series of annual social events to fundraise, as well as bring Rye Neck parents and families together.  This school year, we hosted:

  • Back to School Social on Greenhaven Beach

  • Casino Night

  • Winter Formal Fundraiser & Social


We also had Sign-Up parties: yoga, charcuterie, paddle, and more! Don't miss the Backyard Bash on June 8. Get your tickets here.
