We are back in session with virtual learning this week after what I hope was for all, a restful and happy
Pesach. With our virtual learning platform we were able to offer some programming for the children over the break and chances for them to stay engaged and socialize with school friends.
We began Tuesday morning with a
Yom HaShoah presentation and discussion. The children and teachers stood for the siren to pay tribute to those who were killed in the Holocaust and we focused the ensuing discussion on heroism; what did that mean then, who were those heroes, who are our heroes today and how do we recognize them. I would like to take a moment to recognize current heroes in our Silver Academy community – our teachers! I have been meeting with our teachers this week to discuss plans to educate the children through the remainder of our school year and I am amazed at their plans and how they are looking ahead – educating and caring for our students in such a warm, professional manner. I am so grateful for our school heroes.
I want to invite all of you to join us this afternoon at 2:45 for our
Rosh Chodesh and
Kabbalat Shabbat program where Morah Tamara will be leading us through drawing and coloring an Israeli flag in honor of
Yom Ha’Atzmaut. Please see the flyer below with information on how to join.
I hope all of you are staying healthy and well and I want you all to know that we remain dedicated to our mission – educating Jewish children and continuing to nurture and develop their love of learning and pride in their Jewish heritage.
