Nurturing children and families
through Jewish values...one day at a time
Reecting on this school year, I am proud to share that
it was one lled with wonderful growth and learning for
our children. Our outstanding professional sta once
again devoted themselves to engaging their students in
meaningful, hands on experiences.
We had a year in which many families joined our Preschool
family and also our extended Park family by attending
various synagogue events and becoming members. We are
so proud of our Preschool with its excellent program, and
renown reputation in the community.
As I look forward to next Fall, I am excited to continue our
work alongside Marilyn Zaas, to ensure the continuity of
our Preschool. We remain committed to conveying Jewish
values, and the best educational practices in our warm and
Thank you to all of our sta, volunteers, clergy, Park Board,
Park sta, Preschool families and our precious students for
making us what we are!
Yours for Children,
As I look forward to summer camp and the 2019/20 school
year I have mixed feelings. I will miss spending the day in
my classroom with students after teaching 10 years of 3 year
olds here at Park Synagogue.
However, I look forward to the new challenges ahead of me
as the Director of the Park Preschool. I am especially happy
to serve in this role of supporting our students, teachers and
parents throughout our journey as educators and learners
all together. We have an amazing, nurturing preschool with
kind, loving, and creative teachers. I’m so proud to be a part
of this group.
We have worked hard together to earn 4 stars with the Step
Up to Quality program. This was accomplished without
losing site of the importance of play, Tikkun Olam (taking
care of our world), and the sense of Kehillah (community)
I’m anxious to greet my old friends and meet our new
families as well. Stay tuned for updates on preschool
happenings throughout the year.
