LOOKING AHEAD

Thank you all for your extremely valuable feedback regarding ASHAR’s virtual schooling.  While responses to individual questions will prove invaluable to both future virtual and real schooling, perhaps the most significant observable result of this exercise was the very strong level of parental participation. An engaged parent body bodes well for continued success, as we jointly chart our course for year’s-end, September and beyond.  

The coming weeks will feature assessments, modified report cards and meaningful end-of-year programs.  Most importantly, your children’s teachers will continue to engage and educate until the end.  Much of our recent learning has been virtual, but  the perseverance, resourcefulness and adaptability the process has engendered are real-life skills that will serve our children throughout their lives.

We are cautiously optimistic of a gradual return to normalcy, b’ezras Hashem, and will be scheduling a parent meeting to address plans for September; please watch your email for details.

Shabbat Shalom!

We look forward to seeing you then!  

We are also happy to let you know that the Waterford Reading and Math Program will extend over the summer.  We will keep it up and running for all our PreK and Kindergarten students. In addition, the i-Ready Reading and Math Program will also continue for our First Graders through July.

Have a wonderful and healthy Shabbos!
