Parent Kesher (Connection)
The Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy Parent Kesher (Hebrew for "connection") is made up of the parents of our students. Parent Kesher is the kindergarten through 8th grade organization that supports the school and creates the critical connection between parents, teachers, staff, and our children.
Every Meyer Academy parent is a member of Parent Kesher; membership is automatic upon a child's enrollment. The Parent Kesher is a committee of the Board of Trustees and is chaired by an appointed Chairperson.
Throughout each academic year, Parent Kesher plans and sponsors events which are meant to promote the purposes and goals of the school. While parent participation in any Parent Kesher sponsored activity/event is voluntary, we strongly encourage parents to become involved as these efforts enrich the lives of all members of the Meyer community.
The purpose and goals of the Parent Kesher and Parent Kesher events are:
- To enhance the educational experience for our students and to help generate a feeling of community among the parents, students and faculty of Meyer Academy.
- To work in cooperation with the Administration and Faculty to provide programs and activities for the parents on issues relevant to the health, education, and welfare of the students - as well as special activities for our families both on and off campus.
- To provide a volunteer work force to assist the school, as needed and with prior approval of the Administration.
Involved parents provide invaluable support for the school and help promote Meyer’s distinctive community spirit. Participation can take the form of becoming a member of a Parent Kesher committee, chairing a committee, volunteering prior to - or during - an event, attending events, and/or volunteering to assist the Administration.
