Parents’ Association

Welcome to the Netivot HaTorah family! Coming to a new school can be very challenging. You not only find yourself in the midst of strange faces, a new building, and having to get used to the faculty and administration, you may feel lost struggling to figure out "how" Netivot works. Over the summer you are provided with policies and procedures in the school handbook. The handbook can be very intimidating and overwhelming. In this publication we hope to provide you with an easy reference booklet on some of the most commonly asked questions by new parents.

You will learn:

  • About the Parents’ Association and what we do
  • About the Parent’s Association Calendar and lunch program
  • How you can get involved and make a difference

We hope that you will find this booklet a useful guide to help you through the year.

To the Parent’s of Netivot,

There is nothing more satisfying than seeing our children happy and grinning from ear to ear. You can help us achieve this by volunteering your time at our school. Not only will your children reap the benefits of your volunteer efforts it is a great way to meet people and make new friends.
At the Parents’ Association, we really feel that when you give of your time and energy, you should enjoy it and feel good about it. Any volunteer time that you can give is valued, whether it be a couple of hours or a larger amount of time. There truly is a role for everyone, so find something that suits your interest and your schedule. It is a great way for you to promote your child’s learning environment and have some fun at the same time.
The value of volunteering can’t be measured with words. Our children’s’ smile is remuneration for our efforts. We encourage each and every one of you to dedicate some of your time to your children by supporting the efforts of the Netivot HaTorah Parent’s Association.

The Netivot HaTorah Calendar is the best way to stay in touch with everything that is happening at the school.
It is a must for daily life at Netivot.

You will find:

  • Candle lighting times
  • special school days
  • early dismissals

The school calendar can be purchased on its own but for your best value, place either a personal or business ad.
When you place your ad you will receive:

  • a calendar for the next school year

  • CareMiles for the cost of your ad

The school calendar is published in May for the following school year.
Ads can be placed after Winter Break.
