Dear Families and Friends,
It has been a crazy semester but here we are, almost at the finish line! I want to take a minute to express my gratitude for the many blessings I have in my life.
To the talented and hard-working employees of HBHA, thank you.
To the brilliant and energetic members of the Board of Trustees, thank you.
To the committed and passionate families of HBHA, thank you.
To the supporters of HBHA, thank you.
And to the leadership at the Jewish Community Foundation, the Jewish Federation, The J KC, the Menorah Heritage Foundation, and the synagogues of Kansas City, thank you.
And finally, to the resilient, hardworking, and flexible students of HBHA, thank you.
HBHA exists because of the community, and for the benefit of the community. And it takes all of our support to make such a community operate. I am grateful to be a part of this school and community.
We recognize that this summer is likely going to be different than any other summer. Plans are being canceled or changed. Camps are being delayed or canceled altogether. While we have been hyper-focused on reaching the end of the academic year, we are looking in ways to keep our kids connected over summer. While these plans are in their infancy, we want to encourage you to make your own plans to keep in touch. One easy way to keep in touch is to join our Parent Forum Facebook page. We want to encourage everyone to get involved in building and sustaining your children’s social connections over the summer.
Next week is a big week with our:
- Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremony on Monday, May 18,
- Kindergarten Graduation on May 21, and
- 5th and 8th Grade Continuation Ceremonies on May 22.
I wish to congratulate all of our students and families on completing a truly challenging and unusual year!
With excitement and anticipation,
HBHA Head of School
