We have had a very full and busy second week of school. Our fall sports teams kicked into gear (pun intended) with practices on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Eager athletes could be seen donning their uniforms a bit too early in the day, so as not to miss even a minute of practice! Students were briefed about our upcoming musical production, the Junior Broadway version of "Annie"--which we will perform on January 21st. Auditions are coming up on October 1st and 2nd. Students also spent additional periods in their advisory groups, sharing their feelings about this summer's conflict in Israel/Gaza, and commemorating the attacks of September 11, 2001.

We have completed our second week in the lower school, and the children have settled in beautifully to their new grades and classes.
It is exciting to watch children arrive in the morning, eager to greet friends and teachers and begin their day. Seeing students so engaged in their learning is heartening, and the teachers all report that they are thoroughly enjoying their new classes.

It is my enormous pleasure and privilege to welcome you to a new school year at The Abraham Joshua Heschel School! Everyone here at Heschel is thrilled for our students to return and for our classrooms to buzz once again with the excitement of learning and exploration.
I hope that, today or some time soon, you will enter our school through the 30 West End Avenue entrance and take a minute to appreciate the words of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel that are on the wall, written in magnificent, colorful letters made by our students: "Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement.... Get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Begin each day with a grateful heart."
