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:
Welcome new families to our school, share upcoming events and facilitate their transition to HA. Initiatives have included a Welcome Breakfast, distribution of Rosh Hashana baskets, Chanukah gifts and Mishloach Manot to new families.
Supervise and assist our children during lunchtime on a day of your choice.
Organize and run fundraising initiatives that help to ensure Hebrew Academy’s long term financial sustainability, including our Annual Campaign and Hebrew Academy Raffle.
Oversee students’ health and well-being and advise on such issues as nutrition, menus, cafeteria procedures, lice-checks and allergy protocols.
Safety and Security Committee
Work with administrators on issues relating to the security of HA family members both in and out of the building. Areas of concentration include the safety of the building and surrounding grounds, as well as security protocols during school outings.
Evaluate and oversees major repairs, renovations and construction in the school, ensuring that we receive the best possible pricing and service.
Alumni Relations Committee
Help us to maintain a deep connection with our valued alumni. Update our alumni contacts and news, and inform alumni of upcoming initiatives and events.
Ensure that the school is being as environmentally-friendly as possible vis-à-vis recycling, composting and using biodegradable materials, and educate students and staff on the benefits of being “green” and protecting our planet.
