South Orangetown Central School District

PTA | Red & White

The South Orangetown Central School District PTAs partner with parents, teachers, administrators and support staff to enrich students’ school experience and encourage life-long learning, as well as advocate for sound education policy on a national, state, local and district level.

Please note that these are not official district sites and are not managed or monitored by South Orangetown Central School District.

The TZ Red & White Booster Club is a sports booster club dedicated to raising funds to support all athletes for all sports teams at Tappan Zee High School and South Orangetown Middle School. In addition, the club works in conjunction with the Athletic Office to foster school spirit.

The Wednesday Update is e-blasted weekly when schools are in session to communicate information from the South Orangetown PTAs and TZ Red & White. Wednesday Update content is also posted here, on the PTA page of the district website. Nonprofit organizations may submit text-only blurbs regarding family-oriented, education-related content for posting on the e-Backpack page of the district website. Click here for submission guidelines.
