Last Year's Generations Day

Last Friday, over 300 grandparents and special friends gathered at Rashi to share an afternoon highlighted by a delightful luncheon, meaningful classroom visits, and two joyful Kabbalat Shabbat services.

After a brief reception in our Sukkat Shalom, guests enjoyed a delicious luncheon downstairs in the Gymnasium-turned-Chadar Ochel where Head of School Mallory Rome delivered a warm welcome.

During the luncheon, co-chairs Jackie Finard-Hughes and Andie Finard spoke about how integrated intergenerational experiences are core to Rashi and how their family has benefitted from our values-based education.

"[Our kids] have learned the value of respect; how to show respect to others, understand that each person deserves to be treated with dignity and that we all have a responsibility to protect our world."

Following lunch, our guests joined students in their classrooms to witness our school in action. Grandparents and special friends sat in on math lessons, art class, discussions of literature and issues of social studies, and explored engineering challenges in science lessons. 

And, as we do on every Friday afternoon, students and their visitors enjoyed a slice of challah and attended Kabbalat Shabbat services to wrap up the week.
