This year’s closing ceremonies were bitter sweet. While we acknowledged our students for their year of learning and our teachers for their year of teaching and dedication, we also said goodbye to Gail Schmitt after ten years as our Religious School Director. Gail is retiring from her position as Religious School Director so that she can have more time with her growing family. While we will miss her warmth, patience and laughter, we wish her well on the next chapter. Luckily we will still be able to see her from time to time as she stays on as the Director of Adat Shalom Preschool.
