SAR High School Parent Teacher Council (PTC)
Parent involvement is encouraged and welcomed at SAR HS. One way in which parents can get involved is through the SAR HS PTC which works in conjunction with the SAR Academy PTC to enhance the SAR community.
One of PTC’s most successful events is our Parent Social Night, which is held every year in the Fall.
It is an evening where parents have the opportunity to meet other parents and socialize with the administration in an informal setting. PTC also runs Chanukah Gelt and Mishloach Manot programs for our dedicated staff. Other ways in which parents can get involved is through our very well attended Book Club, which is run by our talented English faculty. Parents, grandparents, alumnae and community members are all welcome. All parents are invited to be part of our learning community. Our Judaic Studies classes for adults always generate a great turnout and are run by our outstanding Judaic Studies faculty.
This year PTC launched our very own line of SAR Spiritwear Clothing so that members of the SAR community can wear their support of SAR wherever they go! In addition, every year, as a small token of our appreciation, the SAR HS PTC hosts an end of the year luncheon for our wonderful faculty.
We urge all parents to get involved and to participate in SAR HS PTC.
Parent Liasion Committee
One of SAR High School’s most important objectives is to have regular, open and honest line of communication between the parent body and the administration. The SAR High School Liaison Committee exists to encourage and facilitate these communications between the parent body and the administration. The committee is comprised of administration members as well as parents from each grade, with an eye on representing the different communities from which the school draws. Parents serve a two-year term.
The goal of the Committee is to serve as a forum/focus group in which issues of concern to the administration and the parent body, as a whole, can be identified and discussed. The Committee discusses a wide array of issues that affect the students and the school in the academic, religious and social spheres. The committee meets approximately every six weeks during the school year.
Approximately two weeks prior to each meeting, emails are sent to parents asking them to contact the liaison committee members with concerns and/or comments that they might want the committee to address. The meeting agenda is then set jointly by the parents and the administration based on this feedback, and other issues the administration would like to discuss.
