Family Teacher Organization

Upcoming Events:

  • Friday, October 22 | 2:30 - 3 p.m.

    We are celebrating The Shabbat Project, a day for Jews around the world to celebrate together, by hosting an all school, family Shabbat Sing! 

    We are excited to be a part of it! Check out the website and you can see what Jewish communities will be doing to celebrate together around the world!  https://www.theshabbosproject.org/en/home

    On Friday, October 22 from 2:30 - 3 p.m. we will gather together on the circle drive behind the school for Shabbat Sing. We will also share a moment of public celebration for students who became B’Mitz since the pandemic began in March of 2020.

    Following, students will go back inside and get ready for dismissal while grown-ups schmooze outside.
