Weekly Update 5-2-16

What a year we just completed!! For my fellow numbers folks—we just wrapped 24 weekly sessions, 1 snow day, 2 guest speakers, 1 Jewish film, 1 moving play, 1 amazing trip to Philadelphia, >1600 slices of pizza, and countless Oreo cookies. And when you apply the appropriate algebraic formula, that all adds up to 1 Terrific Year of Jewish Learning!! And you don’t have to take my word for it: results of the surveys we ask our students to complete at the end of each semester for each course support my math: for the semester just completed, the overall satisfaction/rating score was 4.52 on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being most satisfied. So even if you’re just getting the typical, “it was fine,” response when you ask about HSJS, the numbers don’t lie: your kids are excited about our classes, faculty, and the Jewish learning experience we provide.

So now it’s your turn to let us know how you think we’re doing. Please take 10 minutes to fill out our annual parent survey—your responses help us make sure we’re staying on track. Since it’s Derby Week, please either fill it out RIGHT NOW, or set a reminder to do it next Monday when the festivities are behind us. The survey will stay open until May 16. Here’s the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/hsjs2016

Finally, watch for semester wrap-up emails about the classes your child took and for registration links for next year—and that link will be open to EVERYONE since we’ll be accepting 11th and 12th graders so we can stay on par with our fellow community Hebrew Highs across the country.

It’s been a privilege working with all of your children this year!
