Akiba Atmosphere Updates 5/22/20

Dear Parents and Staff,  As I write this I am still wiping away tears from this morning's graduate profile video. Each morning during announcements we have been sharing a video of our graduates speaking or sharing a message in their own way preceded by a teacher introduction. Each one has been special and emotional highlighting how unique each of our students are and how fortunate all of us as staff and teachers are to work with them each day. All the graduate videos from this week have been posted on the Akiba Atmosphere site and you can click here to watch. Make sure to have tissues handy.  We continue to have Dad Jokes at morning announcements much to the dismay of many. However, now students are having Dad Joke offs most mornings which have been inspiringly cringy and we love it! The Dad Joke gallery page on the site has been updated so if you need a smile or a groan click here and enjoy! This week we begin the fourth Chumash (book of the bible) of the Torah with Parshat Bamidbar. Click here to watch this week's Parsha story focused on G-ds love for us.  The preschool through 2nd grade were sent a survey today to gauge interest in an online summer program. Please click here to complete this survey about your interest by Wednesday, May 27.  Middle School was sent an important communication today about what the last two weeks of learning at Akiba Atmosphere will look like with some exciting and meaningful ways to end the school year. Please click here to read the communication if you missed it.  I hope you have a wonderful Shabbat, weekend and Memorial day. Sincerely,  Dr. Eliezer Jones                Head of School
