Parents’ Association

At the core of the RHA community are the countless parents who work tirelessly to enhance our school through the Parents’ Association (PA).  Their work is widespread and it’s difficult to go a day without witnessing just one of their remarkable programs.  It is no overstatement to say that the PA is the heart and soul of our school.

The PA helps deepen Jewish holiday experiences by providing traditional foods and treats.  Indeed, it is the PA that prepares Mishloach Manot for Purim and provides Lulavim and Etrogim at Sukkot.  It is the PA that arranges for Shabbat Challahs to go home each Friday with our children and it is the PA that organizes the school lunch program – everything from pizza and hot dogs to sushi.  The PA helps support our libraries through an incredible Annual Book Fair.  It also arranges and oversees all of RHA’s extra-curricular activities – from yoga to martial arts, from cooking to guitar lessons, from hip-hop to public speaking and cartooning.

The Parents’ Association is an invaluable body at RHA.  It is the link between parents and administration.  It is the way in which parents can provide very real input to the school and effect the changes they want to see.  It is the way in which teachers, parents and staff work side by side to raise money for the equipment and programs that enrich our students' experience.

The PA is the way in which our parents bond, creating a richness of spirit and depth of commitment that infuses the very culture of our school.

Here is the list of activities and events that the PA organizes:

  • Lunch Program
  • Academy of Excellence Lunch and After School Programs
  • Acorn Cards
  • Calendar Advertising
  • Lulav and Etrog Sales
  • Rosh Hashanah Bake Sale
  • Book Fair
  • BINGO Night
  • Cookbook Sales
  • BBQ

What do they do with the money they raise? 

The PA generously donates back to RHA by funding the following:

  • Gym Shirts for New Students 
  • RHA Yearly Calendar  
  • Holiday Celebrations for RHA Staff and Students
  • Anti Bully Programs
  • Apples and Honey for Rosh Hashanah
  • Sufganiyah for Chanukah
  • Mishloach Manot for Purim
