Dear friends

This is among the most magical times of the year. We are coming out of the joy of Purim and headed full steam toward the spring holidays that occupy this part of the Jewish calendar. For those of us who run Jewish day schools, however, the true magic of this period is that we are in the process of filling up our school with returning and new Jewish families. Here at the Ottawa Jewish Community School, this is a time filled with immense gratitude. We have gratitude for the families who continue to choose OJCS as their school of choice – and we are hopeful that our trend of five consecutive years of increased enrollment will continue into a sixth. We are grateful to our teachers whose passion, talent, and care remain the most critical variable to our success.
