Moriah Middle School Is Back to School

After a long quiet summer in the Moriah building, last week, students and parents came to locker set-up night and for many parents it was their first time being in the building in over a year. Some seventh grade parents had never been in the middle school corridors before. It felt so right for everyone to be standing in one place together again. The students of course were just excited to see one another as they organized their school supplies and prepared for the start of school.

Moriah Middle School students are the lucky beneficiaries of a wise, committed, and deeply caring faculty who spent a tremendous amount of time and energy preparing for this fall and are ready to teach each and every individual. The teachers are thrilled to be back in their own classrooms, their home away from home, developing relationships with their students and teaching subjects they feel so passionately about.

On Wednesday morning school was back in full force! All the grades were on one floor, no longer bound by pods. The hallways were noisy and crowded—the way they should be! By 8:00 am students were davening with a minyan and together we heard the shofar of Elul sounding, a reminder that Yom Tov is just around the corner.

Each grade had its own orientations (and 6th grade had three!). Sixth graders were guided in how to read a schedule, where to go for each class and given their very own Chromebooks for the first time. Bright yellow posters in each class and hallway reminded the student body of the Moriah Middle School Foundations: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Perseverance, and Consideration. By the second day of school, everything was running like clockwork, as if no one had never left.

Moriah is so excited to welcome their new Middle School faculty members: Mrs. Sarah Heller, Middle School Judaic Studies Assistant Principal, as well as Rabbi Aaron Berman and Rabbi Mendel Lewitin.

Despite the stormy weather on Wednesday night, Moriah had a smooth start to the 2021-2022 school year. Moriah Middle School students and staff look forward to enjoying the Yom Tovim and then continuing with a productive, rigorous, and enjoyable school year! -Mrs. Tzipporah Boim, Associate Principal, Middle School
