A LETTER TO THE COMMUNITY from the Head of School and the President of the Board of Trustees

Dear Levine Community, With confidence and jubilation, we can pronounce what we know is in all of your hearts as well – Levine Academy has emerged as a leading independent school and is gaining traction in its national reputation. Why is this? It is because of you – our core constituency of families and supporters. Your commitment to Jewish education, your spirited participation in our gatherings for Shabbat, in our many celebrations, and in our Levine Fund and Gala, and your input and feedback on how we can grow stronger. All of your dreams, your engagement, and your investment make our school’s mission come alive, and keeps all of us at school – the faculty, the leadership team, the board – working toward betterment and aiming for the highest quality education possible, each and every year. And this was a year of many achievements for Levine. Our robotics team took both first and third place at a national competition; our girls basketball team won the league championship; our school’s faculty garnered top recognition for its work with the ADL on anti-bias training – and these plaudits are merely a sliver of our achievements this past year. The top award? Our number one accomplishment? That belongs to the work that each and every teacher, specialist, counselor and coach puts into helping your children grow and learn every day: the teaching we do to elevate academic skills, the time we spend to promote social-emotional wellness, the traditions we cherish which instill Jewish values, and the encouragement we give to grow tomorrow’s leaders. Take a close look at the images and accomplishments that are on every page of this issue of The Flame. There is reason to be proud of what you are helping Levine accomplish, and you are to be thanked, profusely, for contributing to the ongoing success of our school’s community and to the strengthening of our school’s mission.

With sincerest gratitude,

TOM ELIEFF Head of School

MARC GROSSFELD President, Board of Trustees
