Dear Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the Parents’ Association (PA), I would like to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! As a brief introduction of myself, I am Lily Rahbari’s mom, class of 2032.  My family has been part of the Rutgers Preparatory School (RPS) community since Pre-Kindergarten (PK).  This is my first year as the PA president and I am humbled, honored and looking forward to contributing to the RPS community. 
To begin, as a parent or guardian of a RPS student, you are automatically a member of the PA. The PA offers and promotes social interaction and networking among RPS families, as well as several opportunities to enhance our children’s experiences through enrichment and extracurricular activities. Collectively, we strive to help families feel connected to the RPS community.

The PA Board includes a Treasurer, a Secretary, Vice Presidents (VP) for each school division (i.e., Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School) and a Grade Representative for each individual grade. Last year, the PA Board introduced “co-VP” positions for each division and a “co-Secretary” position.  The descriptions for these roles are found on the ArgoNet PA Resource page.  Please consider volunteering.  There are openings for Grade Representatives and you can view them via this link.  I’m happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding the PA.

All parents and guardians are welcomed and encouraged to attend our five (5) scheduled PA meetings held throughout the school year. The PA meetings will be held virtually via Zoom and on campus in the Holliday Conference room, 8-9am with beverages and snacks.  The meeting dates are on ArgoNet under Resource Boards - RPS Parents’ Association, on the ArgoNet calendar and listed here for convenience, September 19, 2023; November 7, 2023; January 9, 2024; March 5, 2024; May 7, 2024.  

On behalf of the PA Board, we look forward to meeting you during our PA meetings, organized activities and more informally, on campus.  Please feel free to reach out to me or any other PA Board member at any time!  Your input and engagement are critical to the success of our mission. 
Wishing you all a wonderful school year!

Best regards,

Jackie Rahbari, SHRM-SCP
