Message from Mr. Sherman
I hope this note finds you doing well and enjoying your summer. Parent Orientation has been scheduled for Wednesday, September 2nd from 7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. We will begin in the Sanctuary and move to the classrooms. If you know of anyone who is not affiliated with a synagogue and is looking for a spiritual home, please let them know that we are around and would love to speak with them. We have three services coming up that will be especially family oriented: (1) Friday, Aug. 7th: 6:30 p.m.-7:10 p.m. in the courtyard (weather permitting, otherwise in the Sanctuary); (2) Friday, Aug. 14th: 6:00 p.m. at Gillson Park in Wilmette (bring your own dairy/vegetarian dinner and a dessert to share) and (3) Sat. Aug. 22nd: 9:30 a.m. Intergenerational Torah Reading, followed by kiddush and swimming at the Rabbi and Dan’s home.
The first two days of Am Yisrael SJS classes for Gimel through Zayin are Wed. Sept. 9th and Wed. Sept. 16th. We have no SJS on Sun. Sept. 13th (Erev Rosh Hashanah). The first day of SJS for Junior Gan through 12th Grade is Sunday, Sept. 20th. If you miss one of my emails, you can always look to find my messages to the Am Yisrael SJS families on my blog.
Finally, please note that I am in the midst of meeting with all of our teachers and planning out an amazing year at SJS. It helps us tremendously to know which students are going to be enrolled in each of our classes in advance so that we not only order the proper number of materials, but structure our lessons according to how many students are in each class. Please contact us in the office if you need us to re-send registration materials.
