Yavneh welcomes the involvement of entire families in the school community. Parents volunteer in the classroom, participate in holiday celebrations, provide input on school-wide issues, and raise money to strengthen and broaden school programs and to ensure that families from all economic backgrounds may receive the benefit of a Yavneh education.
The goals of the YPA are:
- To support an interactive relationship among parents, staff and the Board of Directors.
- To promote a sense of community and common interests among the families of Yavneh.
- To sponsor activities that will bring students, parents and faculty closer together.
Activities and Events
The YPA plans a variety of activities and events throughout the year to promote a sense of community. These include:
- Staff Appreciation Week
- End-of-Year Ice Cream Social
- Pizza in the Hut
- Book Fair
Parent participation is critical to the success of our school. Each family is required to earn 25 Parent Participation Credits (PPCs) during the school year. Some PPCs may be earned by working in your child's classroom, serving on the Board of Trustees or as a committee chairperson, becoming an officer of the YPA, or assisting in the school office. The majority of PPCs, however, are expected to be earned through direct assistance in fundraising efforts. To learn more about how to earn PPCs, please email the YPA at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jennifer Horton, Office Administrator, at email@example.com.
