Religious School News (October 2015)

Welcome to all of our new and returning students and families! Our classrooms are full of enthusiastic students and teachers! Singing, prayer, Hebrew and laughter
emanate from our classrooms, hallways and sanctuary. Opportunity abounds for new and renewed friendships.

This year, the Israeli Teen Emissaries are scheduled to visit our school each month, on either a Sunday or Wednesday. They will spend time bringing Israel into our classrooms. Their first visit to our school will be on Wednesday evening, October 7 with the 5th grade students.

The annual Mitnick Educators Conference will be held on Sunday, November 1 at the Emanuel Synagogue in West Hartford. The focus of the conference this year is “Learning Centered Teaching”. School will be closed that day so that our teachers and teen assistants can attend and enhance their teaching with ideas presented at the conference.

Please note that November 1 is the end of Daylight Savings Time. Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour!

L’hitraot (see you soon),
