Dear Parents:

My name is Shannon Benovitz, and I am the chair of AJ’s Parent Association. My daughter, Melanie, will be going into the 3s and my son, Jayson, is a graduate of the preschool. We are a group of parents who are dedicated to improving our school through organizing fun events for our families, supporting our teachers and staff, sponsoring service projects that benefit the community at large, and raising supplemental funds to improve our school. Some of our fundraisers include, trivia night, a book fair with Carmichael Kids, challah bread sales, and the children’s Art-to-Remember projects. New this year will be a Parent’s Casino Night Out in March (this will replace Pasta Supper for the first time ever).

This past year, the money we raised went towards upgrades for our new toddler classroom. We also put funds towards several classroom upgrades, as well. The money the Parent Association raises always goes directly toward improving your child’s experience at AJ. We are always looking for more volunteers and new ideas to improve the school. This is a very small time commitment, with the Parent Association meeting only six -seven times throughout the school year and including free childcare. There are also various volunteer opportunities throughout the year. This is a great way to meet other parents in the school community.

If you are interested in getting involved, please contact me, or join us for our first meeting of the year. If you have not already done so please fill out the volunteer form that came in your back to school packets or it can be found online on the preschool website. Our first meeting will be held Wednesday, September 4 at 6:30 pm in the small auditorium of the synagogue. Light appetizers will be served and childcare is always offered. Please RSVP by Friday, August 30, so I can anticipate a number for dinner and if you will be needing childcare. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing returning families, as well as meeting some new faces.
