Tending ponds and children

August 25, 2014

Our Kindergarten students have a big responsibility. They are guardians of the school’s pond,
and this week, they began learning how to nurture it. They enlisted the help of Middle Schoolers
who tested the pond’s water quality, identifying balanced Ph, clear turbidity, but too little oxygen. With that scientific knowledge, the kindergarteners removed algae that inhibits plant growth and hurts pond animals. 

Their goal? A balanced and beautiful ecosystem. In much the same way, Mirowitz teachers are nurturing your children, adding the nutrients that promote growth, and removing obstacles to success.

This past week, you began one of the most important relationships you will have, the partnership with your child’s teacher. A positive rapport with a teacher is one of most important nutrients to a child’s growth. It demonstrates to children that they can trust their teachers because you do, and that the important people in their lives are working together for their benefit.

As I’m certain you have noticed, the teachers at Mirowitz are spectacular! Perhaps they make it look easy, but I want you to know that what seems like magic is actually the result of long hours and profound dedication. They are committed to creating a balanced and beautiful experience for your children. But every nutrient they offer your child is even more effective with your partnership.

Please reach out to your child’s teacher when you have concerns, and share with them when you are delighted. Partner with them to add nutrients and to remove obstacles. The result will be something both balanced and beautiful. We are honored to be on this journey with you. Shabbat Shalom
