Message from the Principal
Rosh Hashanah, which means “Head of the Year” in Hebrew, is the Jewish New Year. It is one of the most important days on the Jewish calendar. One of the Jewish High Holidays, it marks the beginning of a ten-day time period called Yamim Nora’im or the Days of Awe. This ten-day stretch ends with Yom Kippur, the second High Holiday and the most important day in the Jewish year. Rosh Hashanah marks new beginnings and sets the tone for the year to come.
Based on the first three weeks of school, I know that Yavneh has set the tone for an amazing year. One can feel the energy in the hallways. Students are excited about their new STEAM project; in Hebrew and Jewish Studies classes, students learn the Rosh Hashanah blessing and the holiday customs; in Music, you can hear students playing different instruments with much passion; and big buddies are playing with their young buddies on the playground.
It is a great beginning to a year that will be full of growth and learning. A year of taking on new challenges and enjoying what we already have.
Wishing you and yours a year as sweet as honey. May it be filled with learning, laughter, and happiness.
