Yasher Koach on a wonderful welcome back (indoor!) BBQ and first day of JLC! The students were overwhelmingly positive about the change in the building and program (Wow! was a common response upon seeing the new furniture/rooms!) The rooms looked great, the teachers were warm and wonderful, and the students had amazing energy. I am thrilled for the year to come. Assistant Education Directors, Lily Lucey and Aylah Winter were both wonderful in their interactions with students and parents, and I think everyone is responding to having such a capable team in place.
Upstairs, our kitchen crew worked in an amazingly swift fashion to move the BBQ to inside as a storm approached, and the families responded to their efforts. Bellies were fed, schmoozing occurred, and groups all mingled together. The room was bustling with new and familiar faces, and I couldn’t be prouder. Thanks, Allison, for your recruiting efforts! Many new Preschool families attended too! It was great to see them so comfortable already trying out new experiences at Shomrei.
