Kayitz @ Kulanu
Summer Update #1
Dear Families,
It's hard to believe that just over a month ago, we gathered for Zimriyah, a virtual celebration of our year of learning and growing. Please enjoy this first Kayitz@Kulanu Update! ( kayitz means “summer” in Hebrew)

Mazel tov to the many families who celebrated their children becoming a bar or bat mitzvah! 

Teacher Training: Over the past month, our teachers and I met for teacher training sessions including joining national webinars. Teachers discussed how best to: keep kids active and connected, make space for social emotional learning, teach with new on-line materials for Hebrew reading, improve our tech-teaching skills using Flipgrid, Zoom breakout rooms, Kahoot and much more! We are getting ready for the fall and preparing even as there is so much unknown

Registration: We are excited that on-line registration will soon be available! This launch is a little later than usual as we are building this system for the first-time. Special thanks to Scott Binger for creating this new on-line process and to Joanne Wagner. Thanks for your patience!

Planning and Discussion about Next Year:
