Family Involvement

Join the Parent-Teacher Organization

Our Parent Teacher Organizations (PTO) serve as a crucial link between our preschoolers, teachers, administrators, and families. The PTOs help promote a sense of community within our schools, and their invovlement contributes to the nurturing and safe environment in which our children can thrive both academically and socially. PTOs provide programming and resources that enhance and enrich the secular and Jewish education of our children. Their consistent communication helps create a warmth and level of involvement that contributes to the special culture of our schools.


Spend Time in the School

There are numerous ways to be involved in your child's preschool experience:

  • Volunteer in your child's classroom as a mystery reader, to help cook for a holiday party, or to assist with a classroom display
  • Invite a special person to attend VIP Day
  • Join us for weekly Shabbat Sing

"Our experience at the school is so special and meaningful to us and we have always had a sense of coming home to family every time we have walked in the door."
- Jen (proud MJCCA preschool parent)

Other Ways to be Involved

The MJCCA preschools rely heavily on a strong volunteer base. The Early Childhood Services Committee offers parents an opportunity to provide significant input in our preschool programs. In addition, there are several ECS sub-committees that work on specific school activities and events. Please contact your school if you would like to be involved in these lay leadership opportunities.

The MJCCA’s Inclusion Program strives to provide the necessary accommodations and flexibility for youth who require additional support so they may access the transformative opportunities available at the MJCCA. Our Inclusion Team collaborates with parents, educators, and staff to determine if successful program placement is possible. These youth and their families are then supported by our Inclusion Team through program accommodations and may also receive individualized assistance. Click here for more information.
