Message from Rabbi Krauss, Academy Principal
For the past several years, SAR Academy has focused on a different theme of the year. Students and faculty have engaged in learning together as we explored concepts such as Arvut and Kedusha. This year, our theme will be Kavod, הזכות לכבוד והחובה לכבד, with a particular focus on respect as a right and a responsibility. Our main goal is to emphasize the importance of kavod throughout our school community, including respect for teachers and students, property and overall environment. We will attempt, in age-appropriate ways, to inculcate these central ideas into our curriculum, special programs, music, art and our day-to-day language and choices.
We look forward to a year of growth for our students and for the greater SAR community as we partner in the education of our children. We hope to reinforce the mission of our school, its commitment to nurturing the individual strengths of each child and our connection to Medinat Yisrael and Am Yisrael as we focus and learn about Kavod together.
Rabbi Binyamin Krauss
