The kickoff of a new academic year for Hebrew Academy of Tidewater and the Strelitz Early Childhood Center preschool took place on Monday, Aug. 25. Filled with excitement and hope for the learning and growth that’s in store, students were welcomed back to school along with more than 30 new HAT and Strelitz families.

Students, parents, faculty and administration shared hugs, exclamations and endless smiles, overshadowing any lament to the end of summer vacation.

“Once again it’s a start of a new chapter,” says Rabbi Mordechai Wecker, head of school, “which will be marked by hard work and great fun, all aimed at ensuring that each student is challenged and progresses to the best of his or her abilities. We look forward to seeing what remarkable accomplishments they have waiting for us this year!”

Rabbi Wecker adds a special “thanks to our entire HAT and Strelitz faculty for their detailed and thorough preparations, including participation in staff development workshops and also for their labor of love in organizing the classrooms. We also thank our parents for entrusting us with your children. Our partnership with you is what makes ‘our’ children flourish.”

Hebrew Academy of Tidewater is a constituent agency of United Jewish Federation of Tidewater
