RSPA President’s Message – June 2018
Our Religious School year has come to an end and we hope that all of our students and their families are enjoying their summer vacations. Although the end of the year field trip we had been planning was postponed (maybe next year), our students enjoyed a fun filled final day of Religious School on May 20 which also coincided with the holiday of Shavuot. After a school wide game based on Torah and the holiday our students were treated to ice cream courtesy of our Parents Association and donuts courtesy of Confirmation class teacher Britany Amster. Before concluding for the year we celebrated our annual Teacher Appreciation Day and our teachers and staff were presented with gifts purchased by our Religious School parents in honor of all of their hard work this year.
As some of you know, after 6 years in the position, this will be my final year as President of our Religious School Parents Association. It has been an honor to work with all of our great parents and a privilege to watch all of our children learn, grow and develop but it is time for me to turn leadership of our Parents Association over to some of the Religious School parents with children a bit younger than mine are now. I am delighted to announce to you that Cherie Rye will be taking over as President of our Religious School Parents Association for the 2018/19 school year. Many of you know Cherie as she and her family are long time Temple members; Cherie has been an integral part of our Parents Association for many years and is quite familiar with both our Religious School operations and our holiday celebrations; I can think of no one more qualified to take over as President and she is to be especially commended for doing so, despite the fact that her daughter Rebecca’s Bat Mitzvah is just week away (Mazel Tov!) [at the time of this writing]. Should you have questions about our Parents Association Cherie can be reached at:
I wish everyone a healthy, safe and happy summer and I’ll look forward to seeing all of you in the fall.
