A Message from the Head of School
Summer makes me nostalgic for camp - I spent almost every summer from the ages of 10 to 21 at a Jewish summer camp. Whether it was a day camp at the JCC or a sleep away camp, I loved the song sessions. As many can attest, I don’t have a particularly good singing voice. However, singing always made me feel connected and a part of something bigger than myself.

We’re passed the halfway point of summer - well into the more relaxed rhythm but starting to think about what August will bring. Some students are at camps. Some families are enjoying travel after over a year of being at home. There’s a change in the rhythm of the lives of our staff and faculty as well. Administrative staff work somewhat reduced hours and take some time off for respite. Teachers are also enjoying much needed time off, although most keep more than a toe in the educational water, participating in professional learning opportunities, reading professional literature, and beginning to plan lessons for the start of the year.
