Greetings IRDS Families,
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Ilan Ramon Day School I would like to officially welcome all New Families and welcome back all of our Returning Families to what I know will be a fabulous school year.
For those of you who may not know The Board of Directors serves as the Governing Arm of the school. The Board focuses on the financial wellbeing, governance, and strategic vision for Ilan Ramon. The Board is made up of a combination of current parents, alumni parents, grandparents, and community members.
Our school was founded 25 years ago by a group of individuals who had a vision. This year we will have the chance to express our gratitude to the founding families and celebrate our successes, and our vision for the future together at our GALA.
We will celebrate…
– 25 years of educating Jewish Children IRDS style
– 25 years of a unique and special community
– 25 years of kids calling IRDS their 2ndhome and extended family
– 25 years of Siddur Ceremonies, Mitzvah Projects and Holiday Celebrations with a heart and soul.
25 years of MAGIC!!!
I watched my eldest daughter graduate last year and this year I will watch my second daughter complete her years at Ilan Ramon. This is what I know….. IRDS 5thgrade graduates are not just ready academically for Middle School, but are ready for life. They have been taught to be leaders, they have been taught to speak up for themselves, they have been taught to speak in front of others, but most importantly they have been shown what a community is all about. They learn what it means to be a part of a community and in today’s world where people are so busy, I believe this is A TRUE GIFT that each and everyone of us are giving to our kids.
Let’s honor our first 25 years with a commitment for another 25 years. I thank you all in advance for your support, dedication and involvement in our School and with this year’s GALA. I know that with everyone’s help we will ensure our future for decades to come.
I am so excited for this upcoming year, our Amazing Administration and Staff have so many wonderful things planned. Wishing each and every one of you and your kids a year filled with great learning experiences, growth, and joy.
Cheers to a tremendous 2018/19 School Year!!!
President, Ilan Ramon Board of Directors
