Third Annual Caregiver Breakfast
RSS and the Parents Association welcomed over 60 caregivers for the Third Annual Caregiver Breakfast on December 13, 2016.
On Tuesday, December 13th, over 60 caregivers joined the PA and RSS administrators in the Eisner Auditorium at 83rd Street for an intimate breakfast. Led by Dr. Jerrold I. Katz, Head of School, the event welcomed our students’ caregivers as a part of the RSS community and encouraged attendees to share a few details about themselves and about the children they care for.
In total, the assembled caregivers have spent over 270 years caring for over 120 RSS students. These astonishing figures were reinforced by the love that these caregivers extolled, some who have been with the same family for over 15 years, for the children and their parents.
Caregivers are an integral part of daily life for many RSS families. They are the faces that teachers, administrators and other RSS parents see every day during drop-off and pick-up, and they play an important role in our community. Rodeph Sholom School and the Parents Association take great pride in hosting this annual breakfast as a way to give back and thank caregivers for their dedication.
The RSS Parents Association also had a few special treats for the caregivers, including a raffle with prizes like a gift certificate for a manicure and pedicure and tickets to a Yankees game. The event concluded with a special birthday celebration for two caregivers and cupcakes for all in attendance and a group photo. The event was a wonderful way for the caregivers to celebrate both themselves and the RSS community.
