Parent Kesher

Home / School Life / Parent Kesher

My kids are privileged to be part of such a caring school, that offers a secure, happy and quality Jewish learning environment.  Hausner provides every child with a well-defined path as well as the tools to prepare them for a successful future. Hausner is more than just a school, it is about being part of a community of parents and kids that look out for one another. Hausner has become our family.



Parent Kesher (Hebrew for “connection”) is the kindergarten through 8th grade organization that supports the school and creates the critical connection between parents, teachers, staff, and our children. We are at the heart of the parent-teacher system of cooperation.
