Religious School Fall 2022 Registration

Thank you to those of you who took advantage of our Early Bird Registration in the early spring. Remember, membership and tuition bills are billed separately. Please be sure to take care of dues and Religious School fees prior to the beginning of the school year.
 
The deadline for Early Bird Registration was Tuesday, May 31st, therefore, the Registration Fee is now $200 per student. For any questions or for assistance in registering your students, please do not hesitate to contact me at Educationdir@katucson.org   
 
We are excited to be able to offer a Summer Tutoring Booster for our Hebrew School students. Starting next week, our 3rd-6th Grade students will be able to meet with one-on-one tutors to tie up loose ends from the previous year, and/or to build confidence for their up-coming year by working ahead to strengthen their Hebrew skills. It is our recommendation that all Hebrew School students sign up for at least one of the two sessions. It will help prevent summer “brain-drain” and will boost the confidence level our students will have in the fall. Materials and resources matching individual needs will be included for home practice.
 
This Hebrew tutoring program is offered to our families at no cost thanks to a generous donation. However, as we still need to pay our tutors for their teaching time, it is important that attendance is consistent and homework assignments are completed in order to make the most out of this fantastic opportunity.  
 
These support lessons are offered on Zoom at two separate sessions, June 6th – June 24th, and again on July 18th - August 5th. Both sessions are 3 weeks each and are held Monday through Friday.
 
We know that summer schedule varies from family to family. Parents are encouraged to sign up their students for two slots per week (for a total of 6 lessons per session). However, even one session per week will allow for a steady practice. The time slots are 30 minutes each. There may be individuals who prefer in person sessions, possibly with a few other students, when applicable. Let me know if you are interested in an in-person sessions instead and we will work it out together.
 
Below please find the two sign-up links with the available time slots.
 
We hope that you will take advantage of this fantastic offering and sign your student up for one or both sessions as needed.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
