On Thursday, June 13, Shema Kolainu-Hear Our Voices held our 2013 graduation for all of the students. From arts-and-crafts to watching class slideshows and everything in between, each classroom had a special schedule of activities lined up for both the students and their families.
Graduation took place from 11:30 am-12:30 pm for the pre-school and SEIT classes, and 12:45 pm- 1:45 pm for the school age classes. Each class had a pizza party along with the activities the teachers prepared.
Having a graduation day for our students, even if they were coming back next year, was important to the faculty at Shema Kolainu. All of our students work so hard during the year, and we wanted to make each child feel special and accomplished. Suri Gruen, Program Director at Shema Kolainu-Hear Our Voices, reflects,
“We were really excited with the positive feedback we received from parents regarding this year’s end of the year celebration! We look forward to continuing this tradition where parents get to interact with their children in their classroom environment.”
Everyone involved – students, parents, teachers – are in agreement that the 2013 graduation at Shema Kolainu- Hear Our Voices was a huge success!
