Board of Education Report – September 2018

Our new school year started off with a wonderful teacher planning session held on August 19th. The Board of Education and teachers, together with our ISJL fellow, Mackenzie Haun, met at CSI to prepare a years’ worth of fun, educational material and activities for the 30 students who will be attending our Hebrew and Religious School. Thank you, Shelley Davidson, for preparing a delicious lunch for the attendees.

Sunday School began on August 26th and started with a meeting in the main sanctuary. Parents, teachers and students began the day with singing Havenu Shalom Aleichem, accompanied by accordion played by our talented musician/Rabbi Aaron. Students Jaden Adler, Jacob Cornelius, Lilah Hutten, Ethan Piassick and Sam Wilkinson spoke briefly of their experiences at camp this summer. Shaw Bulling-ton did a Brain Gym activity to help us get rid of the summer cobwebs and get us ready for a new year of learning.

Teaching Hebrew this year (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) will be Rabbi Aaron Rubinstein, Rabbi Aaron Sataloff and Jay Freedman.
Sunday School teachers for Kindergarten/1st grade are Jennifer Bernstein, Chrissy Crabtree and Emily Piassick. Teen aids are Amitai Ilan, Nichole Hill and Sophie Denisar (2nd generation – her mom, Jenna Kaplan Denisar started her CSI teaching career as a kindergarten aid.)
2nd and 4th grade teachers are Jenna Denisar and Lara Geller. 5th an 7th grade teachers are Pam Webster and Jay Freedman
We are looking forward to a wonderful year, full of exciting and educational events.

Jennifer Bernstein, Board of Education Chair.
