Registration Letter from Rabbi Linzer

Dear Beth El Religious School Parents,

As this academic year comes to a close, we want to share our profound gratitude to all of you for supporting us through an incredibly successful year. Due to the circumstances, we once again made substantial changes to the structure of our program. At the beginning of the year, we transformed our parking lot into a vibrant, outdoor learning space; utilizing the entirety of our campus and maintaining reduced class sizes. Once the weather got colder, we moved indoors for the remainder of the year and found the children quickly acclimated to our classrooms and routine. Leaving virtual learning behind, our fourth through sixth graders returned to two days a week in-person learning.  

We made substantial changes to the structure of our mid-week Hebrew programs, offering small-group Hebrew instruction in lieu of larger classes. In these smaller learning environments, we saw students progress effectively toward becoming confident Hebrew readers. Daily enrichments were added in order to break the classes into smaller units and our students welcomed the social time of Krav Maga and gaga. Finally, we were particularly pleased to welcome more than 60 madrichim (teen teachers) who helped make our program successful.  

In all, we consider the past year an amazing success given the environmental factors we faced, such as a high volume of teacher shortages due to illness. Thank you for acting as our partners in ensuring the safety and academic progress of our students and for prioritizing Jewish education for your children and entrusting them with us. 

Even as we wrap up the past year, we are looking ahead with renewed promise. We are excited to return to offering busing for our weekday programs and Monday night pizza dinner for 7-12th graders, along with field trips that took place only virtually this year. 

As always, we are offering discounted early bird registration pricing until July 15th for the 2022-2023 academic year.

Sincerely,
Rabbi Maura Linzer

Memo from the desk of Gennifer Kelly, Executive Director regarding financial matters

We work very hard to ensure transparency and communicate all of our billing information. To that end, please take a moment to read through these important points:

In order to register your child(ren) for next year, your account needs to be “in good standing” (meaning without an outstanding balance). You can review your account and make payments in ShulCloud.  

Temple membership is required in order to attend Religious School as membership dues supplement the cost of our school upwards of 30%. Temple membership information will be sent in June and dues will appear on your July statement.

Temple membership, Religious School tuition and other fees for 2022-23 do not need to be made until July 1, at which time we will send you a statement and you will have the ability to set up a payment plan using your account in ShulCloud.  

For those families with an upcoming bar or bat mitzvah, full account balances need to be paid at least 90 days in advance of the simcha.

If at any time you have questions about financial matters, please do not hesitate to reach out to me, Gennifer Kelly (GKelly@bethelnw.org).
