The goal of the PTA-sponsored Fun Run & Walk is to raise funds for much-needed school equipment — while teaching our kids the importance of fitness, leadership, and character. Unlike a traditional, individually competitive race, the HT Fun Run & Walk is a fun, team-building, physical fitness challenge and fundraiser for grade PN-8, complete with cheering, giveaways, and snacks.
The Fun Run & Walk usually takes place during the spring on school grounds. Our talented teachers and staff create a custom track on the field behind the school for our students to enjoy. Each grade is a team and teams who raise the most money, display the best sportsmanship, come up with the most creative cheers, and more will win exciting prizes. This interactive event takes place annually and we hope to see you there!
We believe strongly in promoting supportive, and informative learning opportunities for parents to build on our parent community with ongoing series of educational programming aimed at helping build happy and healthy families. We encourage you to participate in one or more of these important programs and join us in shaping the Partnership’s growth.

We are proud of our school’s dedication to Chesed promoting one of our favorite events of the year – The Emuna Shir Weiss z”l PTA Family Chesed Day dedicated in the memory of Miriam Isenberg z”l. This event is a perfect opportunity to get involved a volunteer or as a family, set an example for our children and have a direct impact on the lives of those in need in our community.
Because of our amazing PTA family of volunteers and with the help of our students we have been able to accomplish:
– Cookie trays and thank you notes/posters for the Skokie First Responders
– Sort and bag almost 50 bags of clothing for the Chicago Chesed Fund
– Make 8 no-sew blankets for the children of Chai Lifeline
– Decorate and pack over 150 mishloach manot for the families of Chai Lifeline
– Decorate and pack 20 activity bags for My Kids
– Enlisted 2 potential bone marrow donors
– Wrote 66 cards for lone soldiers in the IDF
– Sorted and boxed approximately 40 toiletries for The Ark
– Prepared 25 Purim centerpieces for the dining tables at Park Plaza
– Raised money for matanot l’evyonim
A highlight of returning to school in the fall is our PTA Back to School Fair. While taking care of back to school business, students love to participate in our entertainment while catching up with friends. Parents can volunteer to head a myriad of activities at this event from paperwork, organizing and many others. This is a great time to get involved right at the start of our year and begin to earn your give-get credit while meeting new families and friends.
Our school promotes literacy and reading through our PTA Scholastic Book Fair. Students love to shop for their choices and parents can then purchase books and gifts for their children at conferences that also raises much needed funds for our school. The fair is a great opportunity to get involved as there are a lot of volunteers required to make this bi-annual event fundraiser a success. From staffing the cash register, to setup and cleanup, please look out for dates and be sure to join us!
