It is hard to believe that just last week we were preparing for our Thanksgiving feasts and our wonderful M’dor L’dor event, and tonight we are already lighting Hanukkah candles! I guess this really goes with our theme of celebrating what’s right, because we are certainly celebrating at Stephen S. Wise Temple Elementary School.
Last week was truly magical as our students shared their learning and love with their special guests. By walking through the classrooms and listening to the exciting activities, meaningful stories, and songs and presentations I got a picture of why we do this important day. As I shared with the grandparents and guests last week, we teach all of the content at school, and the families and generations give that content meaning. I want to thank all of the parent volunteers, teachers and staff for providing us with this outstanding experience.
Today I had the pleasure of singing the blessings over the candles in many of our classrooms and with the Temple staff. Each room had its own magical light, and together they filled our school with a great feeling. I know that you will now have that light in your homes, and I want to wish you a happy holiday with time to express your gratitude to one another.
