Calendar changes:


We create our school calendar in March in order to plan for the coming year. This results in having to change some dates as conflicts arise. Please note the following changes:

Now you can come for the World Wide Wrap service and brunch, sponsored by the Men's Club, with your children and stay for the meeting at 11:15. This meeting is for 5th grade parents and any 6th or 7th grade parents who have yet to attend a meeting. Staff will walk you through the procedures of assigning a date, use of the building, and all other questions you may have regarding having your child's Bar/Bat MItzvah at Beth Shalom.
