As parents, we serve as role models for our children. Volunteering at Hebrew Academy is the best way to show our children that we care about their school, their education and our community. There are a number of ways you can volunteer:
The Shalom Committee is devoted to welcoming new families to our school, sharing upcoming events and facilitating families’ transition to a new environment. Initiatives have included a Welcome Breakfast, distribution of Rosh Hashana baskets, Chanukah gifts and Mishloach Manot to new families. Our dedicated team of parents and staff are available to answer any question or concern you may have as a new parent. We thank you for choosing Hebrew Academy and welcome you to our family!
Come assist and supervise our children during lunchtime! Please advise us which day of the week is preferable for you to volunteer.
Plan and assist with fundraising initiatives that help to ensure Hebrew Academy’s long term financial sustainability, including our Annual Campaign Hebrew Academy Raffle.
The Heath Committee is responsible for students’ health and well-being. The Committee advises on nutrition, menus and procedures in our cafeteria, lice-checks and allergy protocols.
Safety and Security Committee
The Safety and Security Committee works with administrators on issues relating to the physical safety and security of our students, staff and others, both inside and outside the building. Areas of concentration include the safety of the building and surrounding grounds, as well as safety protocols during school outings.
The House Committee evaluates and oversees major repairs, renovations and construction in the school, ensuring that we receive the best possible pricing and service.
Alumni Relations Committee
The Relations Alumni Committee connects HA alumni with each other and the school. Help us to update our alumni contacts and news in anticipation of Hebrew Academy’s golden anniversary in 2017-2018! Please send all updates to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Green Committee endeavours to ensure that the school is being as environmentally-friendly as possible vis-à-vis recycling, composting, using biodegradable materials throughout the school as well as educating our students on the benefits of being “green” and protecting our planet.
