PARENT ENCOURAGEMENT PROGRAM
The Parent Encouragement Program (PEP), Inc. is a non-profit educational organization for parents, teachers and others who want to deal constructively with children and teens. PEP is dedicated to the building and strengthening of healthy, harmonious adult-child relationships in the home or classroom. All PEP services (classes, workshops, talks, library) present a practical, proven approach to childrearing based upon the Adlerian philosophy of mutual respect, shared responsibility, developing competence, and winning cooperation.

We show appreciation to our staff by welcoming our staff back to school, providing delicious chanukkah baskets to the staff, and celebrate them with a week of staff appreciation including a delicious luncheon.
HAIRCUTS FOR TZEDAKAH
Every year we have a hair cutting event to donate to tzedakah.
Don’t cut your hair! Save it for Lag B’omer and the Zichron Menachem haircutting event!
PTO Program Chair: Nancy Mehlman at email@example.com.
Truck Day is an exciting event for Preschool and Lower School students that provides an opportunity for the students to experience various "trucks" up front. Each driver provides informative information about the "trucks" duties and often they get to experience hands on!
