From Rabbi David

I spent the beginning of this week thinking intently about mission, vision and values: What are we doing; where are we going and what is important to us along the way.

It's easy to get lost in the day-to-day (I do this far too often). These big picture questions: What are we doing; where are we going and what is important to us along the way - are really vital to keep in the front of our minds.

For Gan Sinai, what we do is provide Jewish, child-centered, play-based, family-focused early childhood education in a nature-rich environment. Where are we going? We want to be a families first choice. What is important to us along the way? Most of you have heard me say this a million times: I want every child to know that they are safe and that they are loved.

As we grow as a school community, it's important to always remember these values and always ask ourselves: Is what I'm doing as a teacher, administrator or parent honoring these values and moving us closer to our vision. That is our sacred work.
