About Us


1 September 2018

Hello! On behalf of the entire PTSA Executive Board, we would like to wish you and your children the best as we begin this new school year together. We also hope you’ll join us in congratulating Ms. Corinne Keane on becoming our new Principal and welcome Mr. Michael Jantzen as the Assistant Principal at P.J. Gelinas Junior High School! 

The PTSA is here to serve the needs of our students, staff and families throughout the year. We hope you will join us at our monthly meetings, which alternate between mornings and evenings. You will hear about upcoming events, presentations and activities for the children. You’ll also have an opportunity to speak directly with the Principals and become an active advocate for your child. This year’s Tuesday meetings will be as follows:

9/18 at 9:30am including the 7th Grade Parent Breakfast

10/2 at 7pm

11/13 at 9:30am

1/8 at 9:30am

2/5 at 7pm

3/5 at 9:30am

4/2 at 7pm

5/7 at 9:30am

At the secondary level, fundraising for the PTSA is done primarily through membership. Our goal is 100% membership from both Families and Staff in 2018-19. We hope you will join us by filling out the form under the Membership Tab or at https://gelinasptsa.com/membership and sending it along with a $20 check made out to “PJ Gelinas JHS PTSA.” You can send it in by backpack to the Main Office or by mail to Gelinas JHS, PTSA, 25 Mud Road, Setauket, NY 11733.

By joining, you will be added to the email distribution list so we can keep you up to date on what’s happening at school even when you miss a meeting. As a member, you will also have an opportunity to volunteer at events like Rec Night and at the School Store.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of us with questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing you soon, and wish you and your family good health, happiness and success this year.

  With Warm Regards,
