2016-2017 Summer

Summer 2016

Dear Parents and Students,

Summer is the busiest time of the year here!  Activities and curriculum are updated over the summer to make the engagement of Jewish education even more successful. We are so excited to introduce a great fall schedule here at Beth David. The phone never stops ringing with questions from new parents, teachers, madrichim, and even students! Our faculty members are awesome and dedicated. The faculty has been planning for the first day of school and can’t wait to get started.

To briefly highlight the schedule:

1.       The Religious School will meet on three Shabbat mornings during the 2016-17 school year!  Students and parents will be able to experience Shabbat, including attending a Service and ending the day with a luncheon.  What fun!  The dates are noted below and on the website. The first Shabbat school will be on November 5, 2016.  When we attend a Saturday (Shabbat) session, there will be no Sunday session that weekend.

2.       Community Shabbat dates during the year are:  11/5,   1/7,    5/13

3.       The Seventh Grade Students will meet on Sunday mornings (10:30-12:30)  and Tuesday afternoon (4:00-6:00)   Individualized tutoring will be scheduled when necessary on Tuesday.

4.       For 2016-17- for Grade 3 ,4, 5 students have the option to attend mid-week session  at Shipley on Wednesday from 4-6 pm by PRE-REGISTRATION with me. (FIRST-COME FIRST-SERVE) basis only.

This “emailing” is your only access to the most updated school information. Please retain this email for future reference during the year.  You will be able to print out a very user friendly calendar that is one of the attachments in this email.

Check the Beth David Congregation calendar at www.bdavid.orgfor all calendar information.  For each event, just click for more information.  There are just a few important attachments for you to read and, if necessary, print, fill out and return to the school office.  Everything you find in the email will be posted on the website under Education and Summer Mailing. You can find the Congregation and the Religious School Mission Statements, and the Ten Goals of Reform Jewish Education on the website for you to read over the summer.

See you on the first day for Grades K-10 -Sunday September 11 at 9:30 am!
