We are less than one week away from our first day of Religious School. Now is the time for details, details, and more details! Class lists, room reservations, first day programming, books and curriculum adjustments…so much last-minute stuff to do!
Last week, our fabulous staff met and talked about their plans for this year. A new (and very different) 3rd grade curriculum has arrived and we are delighted with it. Etgar teachers are putting the final touches on their 6th grade “Yom Rishon at Hag-worts” program for the first day. I have organized our new madrachim program and sent out invitations, hoping for a great response by our teen role models. All of our teachers are learning how to blog and to use the smartboards in the classrooms.
I hope that parents will also make some preparations: get in the habit of checking out our webpage often – our best communication is only effective if you take the time to read it! Beginning next week, I’ll be posting a newsletter every Thursday (I’ll send a reminder). Older newsletters will now also be available for viewing. Check our Facebook page for pictures and videos of your children in action! And, if you haven’t already gotten your registration forms filled out and sent back to me, please do so as soon as possible so that we have all necessary information about your child on the very first day of school. It is very important to us so that we can make your child as comfortable as possible right away.
I’m looking forward to seeing all of “my” children this coming week!
