Hello Parents, Our annual Tu B’Av dance was a big hit.  Thank you to all of the families for coming and joining us on Thursday night.  Ms. Maureen kept us on our toes with her musical expertise as DJ/MC while the rest of the JCC staff kept the night moving along perfectly with food, crafts, face painting, picture taking, and my favorite cupcakes.  It was the perfect way to end our summer. It is a challenge to write the last letter of the year for so many reasons.  For some, this was our last summer together; your youngest is moving on to Kindergarten. For others it represents a time of change, different classrooms, different friends, different families and different experiences.  For me it is a time to say good bye and those are not always so easy.  Over the years we have formed friendships, built communities and have begun to rely on each other and the comfort of our routines.  It is hard to let go of that comfort.  Please know however, each experience that we have gone through together, whether they were parents crying at drop off, sticky fingers, runny noses, toothless smiles, hugs, first time friendships (for children and parents), sandy shoes, or messy clothes, each marks an important moment in our lives.  All these moments together build memories that will last forever and helps form the foundation of your child’s amazing life. It comforts me to know that good-byes are just a doorway to other opportunities.  It has been a great summer and we will miss you all!
