PS #5 PTA Campaign:
Tell the Board of Education:
Approve the 2020/21 Schools Budget - Invest in Jersey City's Kids

The PTA Advocacy Team at Dr. Michael Conti PS #5 School created this "Call to Action" email campaign ahead of the final vote for the 2020/21 schools budget season that we can share with the Board of Education and Superintendent Walker. I am sharing on CivicParent to help spread the word & the advocacy.

You can use the automated email below, which will send the note (which you are free to customize). If you don't want to send to all of those individuals at once, simply copy/paste the note below into your email. All the BOE officials' contact information is provided below for your reference.

Advocate in the manner you feel most comfortable!
