Parent Teacher Council (PTC)

Parent Teacher Council

Associated Hebrew Schools’ Parent Teacher Council (PTC) is run by dedicated school families who are committed to enhancing programs to the benefit of our students. In support of this important goal, the PTC proudly delivers amazing programs and activities.

PTC Fundraising Programs

In support of these initiatives, the PTC runs many amazing fundraising programs throughout the school year. It is with the support of our incredibly engaged families that these programs are such a success:

List of 9 items.

  • Calendar

    Every year we work with the AHS administration to release the Associated Hebrew Schools Calendar. Not only is this a fantastic fundraiser for our school, it is also a great resource for AHS families but the community abroad. We feature businesses, restaurants, bakeries, and professional services in and around our community in addition to including the full Jewish calendar of weekly Shabbat and Havdalah times, holidays, fast days, etc. If you are interested in advertising with us, please contact us throughout the year at ptccalendar@ahschools.com.
