Dear Students and Families,
We've had an outstanding start to our school year. Summer PREP, faculty orientation, the Community Picnic, Senior Overnight (see photo above), all-school Kinnus/Gathering, the first days of school, KPA's Community Shabbat, the beginning of grade-level Seminars, our first KabShab, first session of Heart Work, our New Parent Orientation, and TOMORROW, our first of this year's Kikar Coffee Conversations!
Kikar Coffee Conversations takes place the first Friday of each month from 8:15-9:30am. This time is an opportunity to connect and converse with other parents and Kehillah staff.
This Friday's coffee welcomes Dr. Roy Danovitch, Associate Head of School, who will share his Just Communities model for building community through student voice and the democratic process. We will also be joined by Jamie Reichman, who is helping us prepare for our accreditation work by exploring the question, What makes Kehillah choosable?
No need to RSVP, just show up ready to sip and schmooze. Hope to see you there!
I'll leave you with the most common words we've heard from students, faculty, parents, and Board members as we kick off this 2023-24 school year:
