Cambridge Educational Services SAT and ACT Prep

Parents profoundly affect future generations. They need to guarantee that children are exposed to rigorous academics and are consistently practicing academic skills. It is easy for students overwhelmed with activities, sports, and clubs to lose focus on current learning and future educational goals. In addition, they need to remind children that a student’s GPA and ACT® test or SAT® test scores still serve as the main criteria for college admissions.

NYS PTA members can access SAT or ACT preparation and services at a discounted rate!

Stop the Bleed

Stop the Bleed is a nationwide campaign to empower individuals to act quickly and save lives. No matter how rapid the arrival of professional emergency responders, bystanders will always be first on the scene. A person who is bleeding can die from blood loss in under 5 minutes. This campaign will put knowledge gained by first responders and our military into the hands of the public to help save lives. With all that has unfortunately happened throughout our nation, as well as the uncertainty of when and where another situation could occur, preparedness is key. 

This initiative aims to raise public awareness about how to stop bleeding and also expand personal and public access to Stop Bleeding Kits. Kits can be found at www.stopbleedingkits.org.  A portion of the proceeds from each kit sold will be donated back to the New York State PTA. To receive a 10% discount off any kit ordered, use code nypta10.
