What a difference a year makes!

SKA’s faculty and staff orientation, held on Tuesday, September 1, was unlike any other year’s. School desks surrounded by special plastic barriers and spaced out chairs filled the auditorium, while photos were plastered on shirts of mask wearers for identification.  The warmth and camaraderie of the SKA administrators, teachers and staff, however, remained the same. “I’m smiling” was a constant refrain throughout the day.

After a stirring welcome from SKA principals Mrs. Elisheva Kaminetsky and Mrs. Bluma Drebin, discussions on the theme of orientation centered around preparing for the fall semester and the future, with special emphasis on social and emotional learning –  for faculty and students alike.  Connecting with our students, even with physical barriers in place, is a top priority for SKA, and much thought was given to how to reach our girls in every class. 

Thanks go to associate principal Ms. Elana Flaumenhaft and school social worker Mrs. Yael Fischman for their input into this vital area.  A special note of thanks goes to SKA administrative coordinator Mrs. Shira Englander and SKA nurse Mrs. Joan Sherman for their endless support and assistance in making the school ready for this academic year.

We are so excited to welcome SKA students – and the largest freshman class ever – to our building!
