The Shlenker Parents Association (SPA) is a volunteer group of parents, teachers, and administrators working together to create a better school and educational experience for our children.
The mission of the Shlenker Parents Association (SPA) is to advance the partnership between the Early Childhood and Elementary parents, teachers, and administrators. The SPA'S volunteer-driven operations aim to augment the education of every child, promote Shlenker's programs and special events, and foster the spirit of our school community members.
The Shlenker Parents Association supports the school in a multitude of ways. SPA sponsors several activities and programs that benefit and enrich classroom learning as well as coordinate family and community events. SPA offers an assortment of fundraising programs throughout the school year so that SPA can contribute valuable dollars to The Shlenker School’s annual budget. Last year, SPA contributed over $35,000 to the School. The SPA also facilitates and coordinates the Annual Book Fair to raise money for the School library.
