Parent Association

ועד הורים

The Hannah Senesh Community Day School Parent Association is all of us. Hannah Senesh is made up of parents and guardians that show a strong commitment and investment in the school community, and the Parent Association welcomes your ideas, initiative, and involvement. Through friendraising, not fundraising, the PA works with the entire school community to provide programs, activities, events, and volunteer opportunities that strengthen our bond with each other and our school.

As a parent or guardian of a Senesh, you are automatically a member of the Parent Association. In being part of this group, you are welcome and encouraged to join in the activities that are sponsored by the PA. Whatever your talents and abilities, we have a place for you. Whether you can give an hour, twenty, or a hundred, your help is appreciated. Your children will know that their parents/guardians are helping out at their school - they love that!

Each grade at Senesh has two or three Class Parents who work on building community within their grade and also with the greater school population. This is  done in a variety of ways, from Shemesh - providing support (meals, playdate arranging, etc.) whenever one of our families has experienced a life changing event - to planning social events that include our children, as well as grown-up only nights out.
