The Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School Parent Association (PA) is dedicated to serving the needs of the school community, through a variety of education, communication, social events, services and hospitality activities; and to raise funds to support these activities. The PA places great importance on our interactions with the School Administration on issues that pertain to students, parents and faculty, providing an open forum for discussion regarding the wellbeing of our children.
The PA works to benefit you and your children! Please consider becoming a volunteer with the Parent Association by filling out and submitting the volunteer form that is found on the Beth Tfiloh website. The success of the PA is greatly enhanced by the participation of parent volunteers in the form of time, materials, skills, communication and commitment. By involving as many parents as possible, the PA will ensure that our School continues to be an enriching experience for all our children and their families.
Your PA dues of $18 are included in your regular Beth Tfiloh statement. A benefit of paying your dues is that all families will receive a printed student directory. Active participation offers many opportunities to make a lasting contribution to the students and to Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School, as well as getting to know fellow parents and members of the school community.

The Dreidel Shop provides children with an opportunity to choose meaningful Chanukah gifts for family members and close friends. By purchasing these gifts, you are raising funds to support the Beth Tfiloh Parent Association and also giving tzedakah to another local Jewish organization.
The Mishloach Manot project is the BT Parent Association’s major fundraiser of the year. Proceeds help provide so many of the programs and services that have become an integral part of the BT experience throughout each division, from parent socials and family programs to holiday gifts for faculty and staff and school spiritwear…the PA makes it all possible!
