Our You.   
The Joseph and Florence Mandel Jewish Day School Parent Association (MPA) considers parents and guardians to be an integral part of the schools’ community. Parent participation undeniably enhances and maximizes the Mandel Jewish Day School experience for each child, while aiding them to achieve their highest potential. When enthusiastic parents, encouraging teachers, and treasured staff work together, we build a strong, vibrant community.

To reinforce the success and growth of the MPA, we invite all parents and guardians to volunteer their valuable time. We have a variety of exciting events, important committees, profitable fundraisers and fun community activities that rely on volunteerism in order to be a success. Input and participation is valued and encouraged, therefore parents are encouraged to attend open MPA meetings throughout the year.

We hope you will join us!
