The Tehiyah community is a large part of what makes this school such a marvelous place! Our wonderful families, teachers and administrators work together to create an environment that is warm and welcoming. But our community is made up of more than just the people who are at school each day. It includes doting grandparents, involved alumni, special friendsand the greater Jewish community - all of whom care deeply about Tehiyah Day School and work together to make this school strong.
In order to foster our community spirit, we have regular events and celebrations at which our entire community gathers for food, song, and fun. We also come together during harder times to help support families in times of need. Finally, we work together on Tikkun Olam (literally "repairing the world") projects that benefit the entire East Bay community, from planting trees at a watershed to helping feed the hungry at local soup kitchens.
The Tehiyah Parents Organization (TPO)
The Tehiyah Parents Organization (TPO) is comprised of all parents of the Tehiyah community. TPO's primary function is to promote and organize parent involvement in school activities and committees, to support community building, and sponsor fundraising which benefits school projects.
TPO is constantly changing and growing, and its programs depend on the time, energy and creativity of the Tehiyah parent community. Parents receive information about TPO programs through "Kol Tehiyah," which is sent out via email each week. TPO-sponsored programs and projects are listed below. Please contact each coordinator if you have any questions or which to discuss how you can contribute to TPO.
Tehiyah graduates leave with a solid understanding of the importance of Jewish values such as charity, honesty, respect, and responsibility as well as friendships and experiences that will last a lifetime. Tehiyah alumni go on to attend the finest high schools and universities in the Bay Area and beyond. Moreover, Tehiyah graduates leave with a burning energy to repair and mend their community and the world. Many work to comfort the ill, visit the bereaved, feed the hungry, protect the environment, and strive to positively affect laws and to bring peace to the world. And they keep in touch! Alums are on our board of directors and are teaching in our classrooms. They serve as an integral part of the Tehiyah community.
