PA Executive Board

Meet the PA Executive Board

Allison Jupiter, President

Hello, My name is Allison Jupiter and I am the proud mother of identical twins, Emma and Lyla Korson in Cluster A. I am excited to be the President of the Churchill Parents Association. Prior to becoming President, I was the Class Parent for 225 and I have served as a Class Parent in the girls’ former Pre-K school.

In addition to being President of the PA and being a mother, I am also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice near Grand Central. Since my job is about building meaningful relationships, I want to bring the same to the Churchill Community. I look forward to getting to know each one of you by creating a strong alliance amongst the families.

Also, in my spare time, you can often catch me ballroom dancing with my husband, Alex Korson, or taking broadway jazz lessons.

Alexis Godley, Secretary

Greetings! My name is Alexis Godley and I am the proud mom of a sweet second grader, Vivi El Hadj, and have served as a class parent since she was in kindergarten. I am thrilled to be joining the Churchill Parents Association in a greater capacity this year as I am passionate about strengthening its platform and look forward to growing deeper roots within the parent community.

I am a devoted real estate agent with The Meier Team at The Corcoran Group and have lived in New York City for 15 years. I adore the ocean and the outdoors, and spend many weekends upstate and out east, hitting the ski slopes in the winter and fishing with my husband, Robert, during the summer.

David Downey, High School Division Representative

Hello, my name is David Downey, your Parent Association representative for the High School. I am excited for the opportunity to give back to the Churchill community, that has helped our family for years. Suzanne, my wife, and I, are blessed with three wonderful kids; Jacquelyn 10th grade, Cyril 8th grade, and Genevieve 4th grade. Genevieve has been at Churchill since K, and Jacquelyn just started this year.

Like you all, we have seen the Churchill environment and way of teaching work wonders for Genevieve, and even Jacquelyn (in just a couple of weeks). I’m looking forward to meeting you all and having a wonderful school year.

Earlier this year, I celebrated my 11th year anniversary at RBC Capital Markets in Finance. I was previously at Merrill Lynch, and Morgan Stanley before. Crazy how fast time goes by!

In my spare time, I coach basketball for several teams (had about three hundred games over the last four years), and co-run Manhattan’s biggest CYO basketball program.

Jill Kaiser, Treasurer

Hi, My name is Jill Kaiser and I am the mom of Nolan Weiss in Cluster A.  I am excited to be part of the Churchill Parents’ Association this year. Nolan had a great first year at Churchill and my husband, Scott Weiss, and I have really enjoyed getting to know the parent and faculty community during that time. I am also mom to twin girls, Holly and Cora who are in Pre-K.

I work in strategy consulting for Deloitte and prior to that Accenture. In my free time, I enjoy doing pilates and spin class, taking in broadway shows, and rooting for the Buffalo Bills to have a respectable season. I look forward to getting to know each of you better this year and to help strengthen our Churchill community.

Scot Steinberg, Middle School Division Representative

Hi! I am Scot Steinberg and I am the father of Ben Steinberg in 7th grade. I am excited to be part of the Churchill Parents Assocation again. Prior to being the Middle School Representative, I served as a Community Liaison on the PA Board for the past 2 years. In this role, I secured the sponsors and food and in-kind donations for many PA events, organized the Jets/Nets/Yankees fundraisers, and created the Shop With A Purpose program.

In addition to my PA experience at Churchill, I have also served on the PS 9-Manhattan PA Board for 9 years as VP-Fundraising and Head of Sponsorships & Partnerships. I also am currently on the Fundraising Committee at Stuyvesant High School.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, including my wife Jill, as well as Ben and his siblings, Jacob and Susanna, on the Upper West Side.  

Melissa Friedman, Elementary School Division Representative

Hi! My name is Melissa Friedman and I am thrilled to be serving as this year’s PA Elementary School Representative. My husband Jesse and I have two sons, Eli and Zach.  Eli is in Cluster A and Zach is in Kindergarten at PS59. This is Eli’s third year at Churchill and we have had an incredible experience here. The school has nurtured Eli and allowed him to thrive. It has been absolutely wonderful to see his confidence grow.  It’s also been very meaningful to be surrounded by other parents and families that share similar challenges.
In past years, I have served as a Class Parent and on the Benefit Committee.  I look forward to this new role and having the opportunity to meet new families and help foster the sense of community that contributes to making Churchill such a special school. I am excited to create fun opportunities for parents and families to get together outside of school. Fun fact – I am training for the NYC Marathon in November!
