With Love from AHAVA – The SSDS Parents’ Association

Our parents are among our school’s most important resources. This army of volunteers carries “word of mouth” into the greater community to current prospective parents; donating their man- and woman-power, enthusiasm, and tireless dedication to school projects and programs that cannot be staffed by professional staff and faculty. AHAVA is our very own welcome-wagon, our diplomatic corps, cheerleading squad, and project managers all rolled up into one.

There are many ways to get involved throughout the school year; and there is something to fit everyone’s time, interests, & talents.
