Lower School Collaborates to Create 2019-20 School-Year Rules
Lower School Principal Dr. Susan Holzman, Director of Teaching and Learning Dr. Elana Weissman and Judaic Studies Coordinator Mrs. Hennie Laifer demonstrated the Lower School's rules for the 2019-20 school year.
The rules were developed through collaborative discussions in each class about the students hopes and dreams for this school year, and the rules needed to make those hopes and dreams come true. Each class submitted their rules to Dr. Holzman, Dr. Weissman and Mrs. Laifer, who synthesized those submissions and distilled the three big ideas that emerged:
1. We care about everyone in our community and treat them with kindness and respect.
2. We are grateful for our world and our things so we take care of them.
