PT Council, the umbrella organization over all seven Scarsdale PTA units, informs and advises the Scarsdale PTAs as they fulfill their mission of promoting the welfare of Scarsdale students.  It is a separate entity with its own elected officers and committees and/or committee chairs who coordinate and facilitate communication among the chairs of the respective committees within each PTA unit.

    The 2017-18 PT Council Executive Committee comprises four officers (all former PTA presidents) and the current PTA presidents at each of the seven schools:

    Diane Baylor, PT Council President
    Amber Yusuf, PT Council Vice President
    Isabel Finegold, PT Council Secretary
    Dana Matsushita, PT Council Treasurer

    Beth Zadek, SHS PTA President
    Olga Eligulashvili, SMS PTA President
    Samantha Carter and Sara Farnsworth, Edgewood PTA Co-Presidents
    Aidan Cassidy, Fox Meadow PTA President
    Megan Simon, Greenacres PTA President
    Gina Waldman, Heathcote PTA President
    Suzie Hahn Pascutti, Quaker Ridge PTA President.

    PT Council sponsors a variety of enrichment programs, speaker panels, and activities for students and their families, in addition to several events that are open to the entire Scarsdale community.  PT Council Executive Committee members also meet monthly with the Scarsdale Schools Superintendent, send representatives to Scarsdale Board of Education meetings, attend facilities, bond, and budget forums, serve on District compact, safety, and sustainability committees, and liaise with multiple community-based organizations. Members also meet with members of the District’s central office and the Scarsdale Teachers Association to foster initiatives and facilitate constructive conversations between parents and teachers.
