2020-2021 Year in Review

We began the fall of 2020-2021 school year in the same way we’d ended the 2019-2020 year, remotely.

No one knew how long we would continue in that way so as a community we found ways to make the most of a zoom room.

Our resourceful administration and inventive teachers developed charming and creative ways to keep students engaged. Our students, being adaptable, embraced the new avenues for connectivity with enthusiasm, if we were trapped at home than at least the family pets, costumes, recipes, would be looked at with renewed interest to see how they could become more than just background, could they be a part of this project or activity? Probably!

The benefits of glimpsing into each other’s homes became apparent. We looped grandparents in to bake-offs by reaching across the country or world, virtually. Maybe the pandemic prompted that reach more so than in more typical times. When things began to shift, there may have even been some caution at play, how would going back to “normal” actually be?

In the gallery below you can get a glimpse of how the year evolved, from a remote but optimistic start to wrapping with a sense of excitement and appreciation for each other. Even in a time of social distance where it may have been not so normal we thrived together.

We are continually in awe of the resilient nature of our community. We are so lucky to have such an incredible collection of students, parents, staff and faculty that make this school able to provide an experience that embodies transformative education (regardless of location), enriched by Jewish values, dedicated to giving our students extraordinary futures.


Class of 2021 in their own words...
