All students’ parents and guardians automatically become members of the PA. We try to make the genuine Jewish environment a reality with many opportunities to connect with each other and support our students and school. We look to each of you to share your time and talents with the HACDS community, both in helping with events, as well as attending activities and meetings. You'll be glad you did!

Here’s how you can get involved: 

  1. Read the Newsletter, published via email every Friday, to find out about upcoming PA events and volunteer opportunities.
  2. Volunteer! See below for brief descriptions of the PA events and activities. Click on the “VOLUNTEER HERE” button to send us an idea of your interests. You’ll be added to the WhatsApp for events you select, and the parent chairs of the group will reach out to you at the applicable time.
  3. Enjoy PA social events. The PA organizes class-specific events and adult social hours spread throughout the year. These are great opportunities to connect with others and learn more about what the students are doing.
  4. Come to the PA General Meetings. The PA works with school administrators to host informative meetings that help parents understand and influence the student experience.


The Hebrew Academy welcomes and appreciates volunteers. Volunteer support can make a huge difference for the students and the school. If you are interested in joining the PA and/or volunteering please contact the school secretary.


Here are some ideas for parent volunteers: These count toward fulfilling your family's service hours.

  • Room Parent Coordinator 
  • Token Teacher Appreciation (monthly treats)

  • Fundraiser Chairperson 
  • Book Fair Chairperson 
  • Silent Auction Sales Coordinator 
  • Shalach Manot Coordinator
  • Health Screening Coordinator
  • Uniform Exchange Coordinator
  • Library Assistant 

Be creative about your volunteerism and become an advocate for the school!
