18 Adar 5777
Dear AJA Community,
Whoever coined the phrase, “no news is good news” was only partially right. There are times when news is GOOD! This is one of those times. Last week, I donned a hard hat over my kippah, and headed into the new Upper School construction site to take a glance. WOW. It is incredible how it is all coming together.
Therefore, I am thrilled to be the bearer of this GOOD NEWS…
“We are on time and we are on budget!”
The classrooms look like classrooms. The STEM lab framework is all in place. Construction is moving along at a rapid pace in the Learning Commons and Beit Midrash. Phase One/All Academic Components (classrooms, furniture, smart boards, etc.) of the new building, as well as the renovation to the current Lower School building will be ready for the 1st Day of School on , with the STEM labs and Beit Midrash being completed just a few weeks later. Wait until you see it all. Oh, you want to see the progress? Guess what? I have more good news...you can take a look here.
We look forward to seeing each of you in the new building at one or more of the many upcoming events and programs planned for the 2017-18 school year. We can’t wait to be ONE AJA, on one campus, under one roof in only 5 short months!
