Dear Parents and Friends of Shlenker,


I am delighted to welcome you and your children to Shlenker this year.  I know that you have made an important decision to send your children to private school, and we are so happy to have each and every precious child with us.  I hope you will find, as most of our parents did last year when they returned our Parent Survey, that Shlenker will be a great value to your family.  As a community, we learn together, pray together, celebrate together, and support each other.  For many families, the connections they make at Shlenker last a lifetime.  At Shlenker, Jewish values are taught throughout the day and within all subjects.  Middot, Jewish virtues, are the principles we consider to be of central importance such as how we act, what we stand for, and who are.  Middot challenge us to raise the level of our interactions with each other, with ourselves, and with God.  The expectations found in this world create the expectations we have at Shlenker for our students, teachers, and parents.


I hope you have already noticed some of the new and exciting improvements to our campus.  All students are enjoying our magnificent new gym where Early Childhood and Elementary students have the opportunity to be active in a safe and beautiful setting thanks to a very special Shlenker family.  Our youngest students have a lovely and secure outdoor environment with a Butterfly Garden emerging with new plants outside the Early Childhood classrooms!  Thanks to our SPA, we have 38 new computers in the classrooms and newly covered furniture in the atrium and Teachers’ Lunchroom.  SPA belongs to all parents, and we appreciate having all parents as members!  Finally, the BackYard continues to develop.  Soon we will have a bridge connecting the playground to our lovely natural reserve for all to enjoy.


Our Friday Final has changed.  You will still find calendar details and basic information; however, it will be much shorter.  Monthly, you will find a lead article from one of our administrators.  Much of the information you use on a daily basis will soon be located on our new Shlenker App, which we will roll out soon.


In closing, I wish each of you and your families a healthy and happy Rosh Hashanah and that we will all be inscribed in the Book of Life.


Best Wishes, 
Ricki Komiss
Head of School
