The Jewish Community Day School of Rhode Island is excited to join together again after Passover break. The faculty and staff continue to work in partnership with parents and caregivers to provide meaningful, thoughtful and joyful learning opportunities for the students during this period of virtual learning.
In addition to academics, JCDSRI maintains a strong focus on the social-emotional development of the students. Each child at JCDSRI received a special package in the mail with a new shirt to remind them that we are always together as school community even when we need to be apart to keep our families, friends, communities and ourselves safe and healthy.
In the package, they received a familiar form, called a Hakarat Hatov (Recognizing the Good) form. They were asked to complete the form for someone in their lives who they would like to acknowledge for kindness, respect, responsibility and/or community.
Students have been submitting beautiful videos recognizing the good that is going on around them because they understand that even when we are apart, we still must join together to bring light and kindness into the world.
