PTA


Dear Parents,

On behalf of Cheder we would like to invite you to join the Parent Teacher Association. We are a diverse group of parents, teachers and staff members excited about the future of the kids at your School. Join us and help make a difference in their lives—including the one’s closest to your heart!

The goal of the PTA is to support the school, encourage parent involvement, support teachers and organize family events. The students reap the benefits by the involvement and support of all the adults involved.

Joining the PTA makes this job a little easier. We provide an excellent opportunity for parents to meet one another, get comfortable with the school and its staff, and support each other’s common goals. Plus, we have a lot of fun in the process!

We also appreciate participation, support, donated materials or monetary donations from any Community members. Please contact the school office if you would like to help the school. Thank you.

Your PTA needs your unique talents, whether it’s volunteering a few hours a month or a few hours a year, serving on the Board, attending meetings or sharing your ideas on the website …

Come join us!

PTA membership dues are $30.00 per family annually.

Kindly make your check payable to Cheder Lubavitch PTA.Your support is greatly appreciated. Let's make it a great year together!

What Every Parent Should Know

Researchers have been studying the effects parent attitudes and actions have on their children's academic  success for more than 30 years. The results have been consistent. Anne Henderson and Nancy Berla summed it up in their book A New Generation of Evidence: The Family Is Critical to Student Achievement, which reviewed the existing research: "When parents are involved in their children's education at home, they do better in school. And when parents are involved in school, children go farther in school and the schools they go to are better."

Major Benefits

Research shows that when parents are involved in their children's education, the children are more likely to:

  • earn better grades.
  • score higher on tests.
  • pass their classes.
  • attend school regularly.
  • have better social skills.
  • show improved behavior.
  • be more positive in their attitude toward school.
  • complete homework assignments.
  • graduate and continue their education.

A Significant Difference

One study found that students from families with above-average parent involvement were 30 percent more successful in school than those with below-average involvement. Success was measured by GPA; test scores in math, science, reading, and social studies; promotion and retention rates; and teacher ratings.

Parent involvement is a powerful tool.
