Parents Council

Group of adults

Our partners. Our community.

The Ramaz School thrives because of devoted parents who work tirelessly toward enriching our children’s educational experience. The result is a vibrant and active community.

The Parents Council fosters the “student and parent experience” in all four divisions of our school. Parent representatives act as liaisons between parents and administration on school programming, help celebrate the Jewish holidays that punctuate our school year, and raise funds for important events. Whether gathering volunteers to bake for teacher appreciation gifts and showing our gratitude to our incredible faculty and staff; displaying school spirit through branded RamazWear; creating enjoyable chesed  activities for Lower and Middle School students; or organizing a social gatherings for parent to connect, Ramaz Parents Council continues to explore new avenues to foster kinship and menschlichkeit.

Every Ramaz parent is encouraged to become an active member of Parents Council.
