Shalom EPJA Parents,

 

On behalf of the teachers and staff at the El Paso Jewish Academy, we extend a warm welcome to you and your children as they return for the 2017-2018 school year.  Everyone was very happy to see each other as we gathered in front of the school on August 21st.  That was also the day of the eclipse, so students and teachers participated in many activities designed by our science teacher, Donald Thompson. Be sure to see our facebook page with all the pictures.

 

The week of activities continued with our Open House on August 24th.  We have our excellent and experienced faculty back with us to include the addition of our Pre-K teacher, Barbara Stegmiller, and our Aide, Kaitlin Conner. Kara Jones has been promoted to Assistant Head of School.

 

On Thursday mornings, Rabbi Leon will be conducting Torah services for all the students. The Judaic teachers have reported that the students seemed to pick up right where they left off in their studies without the usual summer regression. That may be attributed to so many of the students attending summer Judaic camps where they practiced their skills. The general education teachers spend the first two weeks in review and assessment. As always, if you have any concerns please schedule a conference with your child’s teacher.

 

This first week of school will culminate with a pool party at Tennis West on August 25th.  We look forward to many more upcoming events for parents and students.

 

Best Regards,

 

Elizabeth Montes, Head of School
