2019-20 Congregational School Registration

Dear Families,

We are looking forward to the 2019-2020/5780 school year!

Please fill out the form below in order to enroll. Registration is for both new and returning learners. You will receive a day placement confirmation email in June. We do our best to place each child on his/her first choice day.

Class Schedule for 2019-2020 School Year 


All classes are two hours, except Kindergarten (Gan), which is 1.5 hours.

Grades K to 3 are offered with either a 3:30 pm or  a 4:00 pm start time.


Grades 4, 5, and 6 are offered at 4:00 pm, with tutoring options either before or after class.

Grades 4, 5 and 6 participate in our required small-group tutoring program. Both tutoring and class time have content-rich curricula. The timing for class and tutoring have two options:

•  3:25 pm tutoring session, followed by class starting at 4:00 pm and ending at 6:00 pm

•  4:00 pm class, followed by tutoring that begins at 6:05 pm and ends at 6:35 pm.

It is possible to arrange for a child to have tutoring on a day other than his or her class day.

Shabbat programming for Grades 3 to 6 is for students on almost every Saturday morning from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Shabbat programming for Kindergarten to Grade 2 is for students and their families on one Saturday morning a month from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.


All incoming 7th graders received a separate communication about registration. We expect that all children having their bnei mitzvah at PAS will be enrolled and will participate in Congregational School through the end of their 7th grade year. 


We look forward to another wonderful year of Jewish education and experiences with your family!

Special Needs Classes & One-on-one shadows (Matan)                                                    
Based on enrollment, we run a self-contained class with a low teacher-to-student ratio and inclusive classrooms. We will work with your family to accommodate your child’s individual needs. The information you provide us will help us create the best learning environment for your child’s success. Please contact Jennifer Stern Granowitz at jgranowitz@pasyn.org to discuss in more detail.

We strive to create balanced classrooms that support all learners with appropriate learning environments. Your thoughtful response to the following request is truly appreciated. Please tell us about your child’s learning style and any special learning needs.

Do you have any written documentation that may be beneficial for us to have in order to work more successfully with your child?  This could include an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), 504, or a teacher's report.  If so, please send or email a copy to Jennifer Stern Granowitz at jgranowitz@pasyn.org.

Child Emergency and Allergy Information
Please let us know if your child has food allergies, and if there are any specific details that we should know.

Child Arrival/ Dismissal Information:
It is our policy that all parents/caregivers/drivers who are picking up a child early must come into the building and sign out the child at the Security Desk in the lobby.

Please note: if it is indicated here that your child is dropped off by bus in front of PAS, our staff makes sure to check that the bus arrives with your child.  Please inform us on days when your child will not be arriving by bus. Thank you. 

Friend Request Information:
When creating classes, we take into account your child's friend requests, along with gender balance and classroom dynamics. Please note that we do not intentionally keep students from the same schools together or intentionally split them up, but rather refer to the requests and classroom dynamics when creating classes.
