Hineini – here we are at another exciting start to a wonderful school year. Our week began last Sunday with our Back to Wise event, where students and families got to meet one another and their new teachers. The energy was fantastic, and a great kick-off to begin our year. The next day our students began their learning, and at the same time the parents were involved in their own education with our outstanding keynote speaker, Bette Alkazian. So many of you remarked that you enjoyed her presentation, and we are hoping to have future parent events with her. Each day this week has added a new dimension of excitement - especially welcoming our kindergarten students. Our days begin with the blowing of the Shofar for Elul every morning at 7:50 a.m. by our own Tyler Yedidsion, and then we are elevated to do the important work of learning and play. I am so glad we are all back together and look forward to sharing all of our blessings throughout the year.
