Parent Education

Parent Education
While Rodeph Sholom School offers a superior education to our students, we also provide many opportunities for our parents to learn and grow within our community. Through programming that is integrated with our curriculum, special guest lectures, Division Head coffees, grade specific discussions and much more, RSS is excited to help educate our parents they grow with their children. There are many opportunities throughout the year for parents to learn more about the issues that are most important to them and their children.

Parent Lecture Series:

3-5 times during the year, the RSS Parents Association invites guest lecturers to discuss “hot topics” that are important to parents and the community. Recent lectures have dealt with online safety, self-esteem and bullying.

Once a year, the programming around a guest lecturer is integrated within the curriculum allowing students, faculty and parents to learn about a specific topic and how it relates to them. This integration helps facilitate communication within the entire RSS community.
 
Division Head Coffees:

Throughout the year, each Division Head invites parents from their Division for an early morning coffee and discussion. This coffee series allows the Division heads to discuss important moments throughout a student’s tenure at RSS: curriculum, classroom success, independence, high school placement, and much more.
All School Parents Association Meetings:

All School PA meetings give the Parents Association an opportunity to have a forum for issues that are most important to our families and community. From discussions about the importance of tzedakah and Tikkun Olam with Rabbi Levine, to what kind of food your student is eating the in cafeteria; the Parents Association All School Meeting is a great opportunity to see parents become actively involved at RSS.

Parents in Action (PIA):

Parents in Action is a non-profit, volunteer organization that serves parents in independent schools. Throughout the year, the PIA provides parenting education and information to help parents communicate better with their students and understand the issues students may encounter as they grow up.  Coordinated through the Parents Association, the PIA will hold events at RSS for specific grade levels.
