Whether you and your family graduated from Hausner last year or left 20 years ago, we have created a place where you can connect, stay in touch, and always feel part of the Hausner community.
What defines our alumni?
Anyone who attended Mid-Peninsula Jewish Community Day School or Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School and left the school in good standing at any grade or upon graduation is considered to be an alumnus. The graduation year is the one in which a student’s class would have completed 8th grade, regardless of whether a student was enrolled for one year, nine years, or even attended prior to the launch of our middle school program in the fall of 1998.
What defines our parents of alumni (PALs)?
Simply put, it’s the parent of an alum as defined above.
What’s going on with our alumni?
What kinds of events do you plan for alumni throughout the year?
Alumni events, including Alumni Day and reunions, are planned over the course of the school year. Former students may also participate in Grandparents and Special Friends Day in May as the guest of one of our current students (contact our Development Office to pre-register).
How can I get in touch with other alumni or the alumni office?
The easiest way to connect is to join our Facebook and LinkedIn groups. If the alum you are searching for is not yet a member of either group, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and, if we have up-to-date contact information, we will send your information on to the alum or their parents.
