Twenty years ago, we engaged in our first New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS) accreditation process. Accreditation by NYSAIS, which occurs every ten years, provides the school, its community, and NYSAIS itself with the assurance that member schools are maintaining a high standard of educational excellence and are true to their mission. I am excited that this fall we are beginning our next NYSAIS accreditation process. I am particularly excited to embark on a year-long, self-study process that, ultimately, leads to the creation of a comprehensive self-study document that NYSAIS will use as a central component of our evaluation.

We have had a great (and very full) week of school. This week, sixth graders continued their study of the bones and muscles of the human body in science class. Seventh graders delved into a new humanities unit: the study of Shakespeare's Tweflth Night. Eighth graders presented projects on the Constitutional amendments.

Last week on Friday the High School's Student Government Association held a panel with a range of students and faculty members as participants. The panel was part of a program that the Association had created for the Shabbaton. The Association felt that pluralism is a topic that is often referred to at Heschel but never thoroughly explored. Therefore, they decided to shape the Shabbaton theme session programs around exploring pluralism as it exists here in the Heschel community.

We were honored to have Liz Neumark and Whitney Reuling lead our fall caregiver workshop Creating Healthy Snacks with Our Children. Liz is a former Heschel parent and the Founder and CEO of Great Performances catering. In 2006, Liz started Katchkie Farm an organic farm in Columbia County, which is the home of the Sylvia Center, named after Liz's daughter. At the farm, school groups from throughout New York are welcome to plant, cook and learn about eating healthful foods.
