Schechter Parent Association: Connecting the Family and School Communities

Committed to building a strong and supportive community for all Schechter families, the Parent Association (PA) hosts an ongoing schedule of activities, volunteer opportunities and parent education programs.

From the annual back-to-school social to Shabbat Share meals to Teacher Appreciation Week and more, the PA bridges students’ school and home communities with fun and meaningful activities. A few examples include:

  • Shabbat Share, where families share a Shabbat meal together, hosted in a community member’s home
  • Purim Baskets enrich student learning by supporting extra curricular activities and events such as attending performances at The Bushnell or hosting an author in residence
