On Monday night, the JLC leadership team had the pleasure of taking a test run with (just a taste of) our new school materials. We staged a photo shoot with a handful of our adorable JLC students, and the room was abuzz with excitement. We believe that when provided with meaningful materials and caring facilitators, children can be trusted to explore, invent, create, and learn. That’s why we are invested in providing our community with a child-centered learning environment and a thoughtfully-crafted school space.
This year, our classrooms will be divided into two age groups, grades K-2 and grades 3-6. Since we gladly welcome students into religious school at different stages of insight and exposure to Jewish life, we are confident that the mixed-age groups will help promote successful learning in all of our core curriculum areas, including Hebrew, t’filah (prayers), Israel, Shabbat and holidays. Additionally, the school-wide programming for all ages will allow students and families to participate in synagogue life as a community.
The JLC leadership team has one passion: providing the best that we can for our students. We are excited to build, in a new way, on the experiences, programs, and sense of community that Shomrei has already provided for its students and families. We can’t wait to see what we can learn together.
Stay tuned for more info about what the coming year has in store!
