Parents are our Partners – Parent Participation

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
  • Holiday Celebrations
  • Yearbook
  • Sukkot Family Celebration
  • Book Fair
  • Camping Trip

Family Education

At Yavneh, we are committed to educating families in Jewish thought and practice. The Yavneh Parent Association (YPA) and the school administration create community-building activities with Jewish content, as well as adult learning opportunities.

Room Parents

Room parents support teachers with special activities and events and providing school-wide information to other parents in the class. Room parents serve as liaisons between the teachers and the other parents.
