Every January, I’m astounded by the way our students dive in to higher level thinking right after a vacation. They simply don’t miss a beat!
In Torah study, Rutie and Kai led elementary school students in a discussion that emphasized the significance of word choice in our sacred texts. (See #3 on page 2 here.) Fourth graders launched into their study of government with an anarchy simulation in the woods. Middle schoolers looked at illustrations of the Boston Massacre and debated who was at fault. Students honed basketball skills in the gym and learned to project their voices in drama. Writers began opinion papers. Lessons were taught about energy, about multiplying fractions, about prayer, about computer programming. All that in a week!
At Mirowitz we are driven to be the best school we can be. We want your children to have a meaningful childhood. We want to provide them with a superior education, a moral compass and a strong identity.
To do all of that, we engage in self-reflection and continuous improvement as part of our rhythm. That’s why your feedback is so important to us. We are grateful that 99 parents completed our parent satisfaction survey. Did you have a chance to complete yours? If not, please respond to the reminder email we will send this weekend.
Join me for one of our parent coffees on either Wednesday, January 22 at 5 p.m. or Friday, January 24 at 8:30 a.m. (Offering two gatherings was a survey recommendation, by the way!) We will share survey results and other plans for the coming year.
I look forward to seeing you at the Chanukah Extravaganukah (finally) this Sunday at 4:45 p.m.
Here’s to a 2020 of excellence and sweetness!
