Welcome back to school, Farber families! We hope you had a wonderful summer, and are excited about a new school year. We wanted to let you know about some exciting PTO events, some Hot Lunch changes, and to encourage you to volunteer this school year with the PTO to help us bring amazing programming to our Farber family. 


Welcome Back BBQ
The PTO Welcome Back BBQ will be held on Sunday, September 10, at 5pm at the school. Join us for some BBQ and family fun, as we reunite with old friends and welcome new additions to our Farber family! We are in need of some volunteers to help with setup, cleanup and grilling. Please contact us at farberpto@gmail.com if you can help out!

Volunteer Opportunities
The PTO is always looking for volunteers to help out throughout the year. Whether you have a lot of time, or a little bit of time, volunteering with the PTO is an amazing way to meet people and feel connected to the Farber community. 

You can sign up to volunteer HERE at or contact us at farberpto@gmail.com.

Rosh Hashanah Honey Fundraiser
Our first fundraiser of the school year is up and running! We are selling delicious honey for Rosh Hashanah, which is being locally sourced from Joel K. Letvin and the Oakland County Apiaries. Perfect for yourself or as a gift. Each 8oz jar of honey is $18 and all proceeds go to support PTO programming. This is a great opportunity to support the PTO! You can order HERE. 


Hot Lunch
Hot Lunch will be offered Monday-Wednesday, beginning September 5th for students in grades K-12. We will be partnering with Yeshiva Beth Yehuda and Jerusalem Pizza this year to help bring yummy, nutritional meals to our students. We are exploring a new platform for Hot Lunch sign up this year, so please make sure to read the directions on the first page when you sign up. The price for hot lunch is $7.50 per meal. Click HERE 
 to sign up for September Hot Lunch. If you work at Farber, please contact us for a discount code. Hot Lunch orders will close one week in advance, except for pizza orders which will close out the night before at 6pm. We will not be purchasing extra meals to be bought the day of.
 
If your child forgets his or her lunch, please call school in the morning and alternative arrangements can be made. 
 
Our Hot Lunch program would not be possible without our amazing and dedicated volunteers. We are looking for volunteers to help out Monday-Wednesday. You can volunteer once a week, once a year, or anything in between! Please click HERE to sign up for a time slot. This is an amazing opportunity for parents, especially those new to the Farber community, to put faces to the names their children are spending their day with! This is also a great opportunity for local grandparents to get involved with the school. 
 
Farber Spirit Wear
We are partnering again this year with Perfect Trading Company, a locally owned small business, to bring you stylish and fun Farber Spirit Wear. We have new offerings up on the site so please check it out HERE.
