Communication

Am Yisrael Events Weekly Emails:

Our Executive Director Nancy Holab Nevins sends a weekly email entitled “Am Yisrael Events” which is written for the congregation as a whole. Once you have set up a username and password for our synagogue’s www.amyisrael.org website through Nancy Holab Nevins, our Executive Director nhnevins@amyisrael.org, you will be able to access all of the information contained on our website.

 

Am Yisrael SJS Limmud/ Education Updates:

Mr. Sherman sends out a weekly Am Yisrael SJS Limmud/Education Update throughout the academic year. Some highlights of the Limmud updates incliude learning what is going on weekly in our classes, upcoming SJS reminders, learnings on the weekly Torah portion and suggestions for how you can get more involved within our SJS and congregational community. Limmud/Education Updates are also a good source of information for prospective families.

IEP Meetings:

It is our goal to meet the educational, social and emotional needs of each and every SJS student. This process is made infinitely easier when families confidentially share their student’s individualized educational plans from their public/private schools. Once we have this information we are able to meet with families and come up with the best possible learning plan at Am Yisrael SJS.

 

Parent, Teacher & Student Conferences:

We hold parent, teacher and student conferences on an as needed basis throughout the year. Open lines of communication are essential to the success of our SJS students and their Jewish educational progress, especially when it comes to building skills such as Hebrew reading. We strongly encourage students to attend Parent, Teacher and Student Conferences. We also hold formal Parent, Teacher and Student Conferences on Wed, Jan 16, 2019 from 3:45 p.m.-7:35 p.m. for all AlephBet (1st/2ndGrade) through Zayin (7thGrade) students.

Progress Reports/Recordings:

Am Yisrael SJS sends home a voice recording by classroom teachers for each student at the end of the academic year as well as for those who are unable to attend the mid-year Parent, Teacher and Student Conferences. The purpose is to give our students’ parents a sense of how their children are learning the materials that are presented and what if any skill-sets and content areas need improvement and/or extra reinforcements.

Social Media:

We have set up class Facebook pages that require invitations. This is an additional means for communication, however never the only form of communication. Please connect with Mr. Sherman on Facebook to get involved with the class pages.
