Gilner Religious School Back to School Information - ACTION REQUIRED

 

 

 

Dear Gilner Religious School Parents,

I hope you are doing well and enjoying some outdoor time with your families. Like everyone else, we have been looking at many different scenarios for the coming school year but the one thing I know for sure is that school will start on Sunday, August 23rd. We miss your children and one way or the other we want to see their smiling faces.

While the public school systems are still weighing their options for the fall we believe our best path forward at this point is to plan for mid-week virtual small group classes and hope for an in-person option for Sunday mornings. We do not want to put any additional pressure on you, knowing that school and work schedules will most likely be in flux through December.

The wonderful news is that we are going to have a strong focus this year on Hebrew Literacy. We are continuing to look at different scenarios for our Sunday morning classes, which as mentioned, will hopefully be in our classrooms with our teachers and your children’s friends. Regardless of how we meet, Sundays will focus on Jewish values, history, holidays, and Israel, while our mid-week online learning will focus on Hebrew reading, fluency, prayers, and for those capable of moving on, haftarah/Torah troupe and possibly conversational Hebrew.

Each student in grades second through seventh will meet in a small group of 2 or 3 students once or twice a week, for approximately 30 minutes each, with an instructor online. The times and days will vary and be determined in consultation with the teachers and families. I have already met with the teachers and begun the process of determining the level of each current student to place them in appropriate groups.

By making the decision now for our mid-week classes, we will be able to move forward with planning and curriculum development for Hebrew and it will give you some solid information that I know we are all craving. As soon as we are able, we will let you know what our plans are for the Sunday morning program.

We are not requiring a full registration packet to be completed, however please click on the links below and download the documents to let us know how you would like to be billed for the coming school year. They can be mailed to the synagogue at the address below. Early bird pricing will end on June 30th.
