Talmud Torah Parents

2019-2020 Parent Volunteer Roles

In the upcoming school year, all Talmud Torah families will be expected to fulfill one primary volunteer role for the year. There are a lot of options featuring a wide range of time commitments and skill-sets. You will likely be asked to assist on other things throughout the year, but this is your primary commitment. If each enrolled family takes one task, we will have all these needs covered.
