Settling Into The New School Year

October 19, 2018

Dear Antonietta,    

Considering that we have only had just two full weeks of school, I can happily report that we are fully immersed in our routines and eager to accomplish great things!

In the Middle School, the 8th grade enjoyed their trip to Washington DC, visiting museums and monuments and getting a sense of history and current events. Next week the 6th and 7th grade will visit Boston, reinforcing their growing knowledge of American history. Student elections were held as well, and everyone was very involved in their own electoral process, as evidenced by the many candidate posters gracing the hallways.

The High School also had elections, and the new Student Government is already initiating programs and engaging with their peers. Our beautiful "Tefila Lab" has begun, allowing students to choose minyanim based on their particular interests, including Art, Meditation, Discussion, and Traditional services. We appreciate David Glickman for his incredible dedication in making sure this initiative happens. All students attended the annual Club Fair, 9th graders began a Pre-AP Capstone Program, and seniors are into the deep dive of college applications. This week we also had the joy of welcoming back many of our College Freshmen, in for a visit from their Fall breaks and eager to tell us how their Schechter education is already paying off.

It feels good to settle in.

Shabbat Shalom.
