One of my favorite responsibilities as Assistant Head of School is to serve as Adviser to the Student Council. This group of thoughtful and active Middle School leaders impresses me every week. The Student Council began their work right after they were elected in early November. In their first month of service they organized a very fun Pajama Day, requested assistance from PTO to provide a special snack prior to going to the Symphony, began to organize special activities and a Mitzvah project for our 75th day of school (December 19) and are organizing the School Store and Chanukah Bazaar. With each project, they are carefully thinking about how they can best serve the other students and their school. As Margaret Mead stated, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” This group of Student Council members is well on their way to making a big impact!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has already so generously donated to our school during our Fall Campaign and Giving Tuesday. Our students regularly learn about the importance and impact of
; thank you for showing them how important they and their education is through your contribution to the school.
