About us

Katonah-Lewisboro Special Education PTA (SEPTA) is a district-wide Parent Teacher Association organized for the specific purpose of providing information and support to parents of children with special needs, including children involved in resource room help, speech and other special services as well as children with severe allergies and extended absences.

 

We are also a welcoming community of parents who support each other in this journey we share in raising a child with special needs.

 

What do we do?

  • We host monthly Parent Coffees in a residential home. 
  • We organize the Rising Stars sports program for children with special needs through the Lewisboro Town Park and John Jay Futbol Club.  
  • We run an annual elementary aged award winning workshop “Differences Day” for all 2nd and 5th graders in Katonah Lewisboro District.
  • We host SEPTA meetings at JJMS Library with speakers and topics of interest to our community.
  • We host fun community events like our “Field Day” 
  • We keep our members informed of related events hosted outside our School District.
  • We have a private Facebook group (“Katonah Lewisboro SEPTA Moms”) solely for parents of children with special needs in our District i.e. no practitioners or solicitors.
  • We are your voice to the District and our Board Members, with whom we meet regularly through Parent Council meetings and one-on-one meetings with our Director of Special Services, Connie Hayes.
  • We work with the Office of Special Services to bring valuable programs to our schools like SPARC after-school programs and summer camp.
