Dear Families,

We loved seeing so many of you joining us last night to catch up and share your experiences. In fact, we had so much fun that we decided to turn the virtual catch up into a weekly meeting. Please see the link to next week's "Catching up with the leadership team" below.

Many of you have shared positive and constructive feedback about how Remote School is going for you and your children. One clear message that we received was to put all of the Zoom links together for each grade on one document including specials, Tefillah and Kabbalat Shabbat. Earlier this week Marcy Kissane created calendar invitations with Zoom links but we would like to make the PDFs available as well:

We would also like to give you an opportunity to share feedback about Remote School through a survey. Please open the survey through THIS link. You can complete the survey more than once if you have children in more than one grade level in the school. 

Thank you all for your support during this time. Please take a moment every day to remember there is no right way to do this and you and your children are doing great! 

We realize that this is also a time, when families are spending a lot of time together and there bound to be some very memorable and funny moments. So, we are also excited to introduce GBDS's Funniest Home Videos competition.  Each week, we invite you to submit your home videos to and our GBDS team will evaluate  submissions  to bring you the GBDS's 'real-life' funny moments captured on video. We will announce the week's winners on Sunday and share the winning videos with you. 

Wishing you continued good health,
Lina, Sheila, Sarit and Susan
