Parent-Teacher Organization

At the Beth Shalom Early Learning Center, parents, as well as grandparents, caregivers, and synagogue members, play a vital role in shaping the ELC community. Parents are welcome to be involved as much or as little as they choose, and in a variety of ways — in the classroom, on field trips, through fundraisers, and at social family and parent events. The mission of the PTO is:

  • To build community
  • To appreciate teachers
  • To fundraise
Building Community

Through social events for families and grown ups, the PTO strives to help parents build friendships and a support network. Smiling faces in the lobby, introducing ourselves on the elevator and in the halls, and whole classroom playdates coordinated by the Room Parent, make the ELC a warm and caring community.

Appreciating Teachers

The loving educators at the ELC work tirelessly to provide a safe, nurturing environment in which our children can play, grow, and learn. One hundred percent of PTO dues go toward teacher appreciation efforts, including:

  • Winter holiday gifts
  • Rosh Hashanah gift bags
  • Purim gift baskets
  • Teacher Appreciation Week activities
Fundraising

The ELC is lucky to have a great deal of new equipment technology in the classrooms. To complement this, the PTO works to raise money for bonus materials.
