Dear Friends of Shlenker,
It is with much pride that I share this article with you. Meredith Diskin, Anne Diskin’s daughter, was a student at Shlenker through fifth grade, graduating in 2001. It is a story that could be told over and over at The Shlenker School, a story of frustration, concern, support, hard work, and success of a child. It is a story of one teacher of many in Meredith’s educational career who helped her become who she is today, a doctoral student in Marine Biology!
This article was published in the first Prizmah magazine, HaYidion. Prizmah is the new organization representing all Jewish Day Schools, and Shlenker was asked to provide an article for this first issue! It is a momentous occasion for us to be represented here. Congratulations to Meredith, her mom Anne, Judy Zainfeld, and the many teachers coming after Judy who gave Meredith the opportunity to go for her dream!
If you are a Shlenker graduate or know of a Shlenker graduate making news, we'd love to hear from you!
