Annual Report<br />

At <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong><br />

<strong>Day</strong> School, we ignite<br />

our students’ Jewish<br />

<strong>souls</strong>, <strong>educate</strong> <strong>them</strong><br />

to their highest potential,<br />

<strong>and</strong> <strong>empower</strong> <strong>them</strong><br />

to use their knowledge,<br />

skills, <strong>and</strong> creativity to<br />

enrich our world.


<strong>Schechter</strong> Seventh Graders<br />

Contemplate Utopia<br />

Have you ever heard of Triastra,<br />

Calliacian, Nomestea, or Mythica<br />

Vibrantica? If not, you probably<br />

didn’t visit <strong>Schechter</strong>’s seventh grade<br />

language arts classes this year.<br />

Like Sir Thomas More in the 16th<br />

century, 7th grade students created<br />

utopias, or perfect societies. As part<br />

of the project, which serves as an<br />

introduction to the class reading of<br />

The Giver by Lois Lowry, students<br />

explored issues facing our society<br />

<strong>and</strong> devised a community that sought<br />

to eliminate these issues.<br />

Students drew on their knowledge<br />

of the rights of citizens <strong>and</strong> the<br />

operation of government, topics they<br />

had studied in social studies, to<br />

create a Citizen’s H<strong>and</strong>book.<br />

In addition, class members created<br />

a model or diagram as a visual<br />

representation of their ideas.<br />

Throughout the process of developing<br />

their utopias, students spent time in<br />

thoughtful discussion, weighing ideas<br />

to reach consensus in their groups.<br />

They also discussed the rationale for<br />

taxes, debated the function of<br />

money in an economy, evaluated<br />

the role of competition in a society,<br />

<strong>and</strong> analyzed Greek <strong>and</strong> Latin<br />

root words to determine names for<br />

their utopias.<br />

Best of all, students enjoyed the<br />

process. Isn’t that utopia?<br />

Our Core Values<br />

Exemplary/Dugma �����<br />

<strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong> School is committed to providing an education that weaves<br />

the best of General Studies <strong>and</strong> Judaic Studies in an integrated program that is the<br />

benchmark against which Jewish day school programs are measured.<br />

In the Image of God/Btzelem Elohim ����'� ����<br />

<strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong> School values the uniqueness <strong>and</strong> worth of every individual.<br />

Our school emphasizes respect, dignity, inclusiveness, <strong>and</strong> compassion. We nurture the<br />

health, safety, <strong>and</strong> well-being of every member of our community.<br />

Journey/Masa ���<br />

<strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong> School welcomes <strong>and</strong> partners with parents to encourage<br />

<strong>and</strong> support their children <strong>and</strong> families throughout their <strong>Schechter</strong> journey. We also<br />

promote a love of learning in our students, <strong>and</strong> create opportunities for children,<br />

parents, families, educators, <strong>and</strong> volunteers to engage in life-long learning <strong>and</strong> growth.<br />

Israel/Yisrael �����<br />

Through Hebrew language education <strong>and</strong> immersion in Israeli culture, <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong><br />

<strong>Day</strong> School personalizes for its students the American Jewish connection to Israel,<br />

instilling a passionate, lasting commitment to, <strong>and</strong> a sense of responsibility for, the<br />

State of Israel.<br />

Celebration/Simcha ����<br />

A Jewish life is a joyous life. <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong> School provides a joyful learning<br />

environment for children, families, <strong>and</strong> educators. Jewish holidays <strong>and</strong> life cycle events<br />

are an opportunity for everyone to come together to celebrate <strong>and</strong> experience the<br />

richness of Jewish life.<br />

Responsibility/Achrayut ������<br />

As Jews, we are all responsible for one another. This sense of responsibility begins<br />

with, <strong>and</strong> extends beyond, our <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong> School community <strong>and</strong> includes<br />

giving tzedakah <strong>and</strong> improving our world.<br />

Community/Kehillah �����<br />

<strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong> School is a community of students, families, educators, donors,<br />

<strong>and</strong> volunteer leaders who support each other through times of joy <strong>and</strong> sorrow, forging<br />

life-long bonds of friendship based on a shared commitment to each other <strong>and</strong> to Jewish<br />

life <strong>and</strong> learning.<br />

<strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong> School is committed to the philosophy <strong>and</strong> practices of the<br />

Conservative Movement, which also serve as a guide in our approach to religious observance<br />

<strong>and</strong> teaching. We welcome students <strong>and</strong> families from every spectrum of Jewish life.<br />

Dear Friends:<br />

Values. Community. Excellence.<br />

These are the guiding principles that have shaped <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong> School since we opened our doors to our first<br />

27 students nearly 50 years ago. And these are the guiding principles that will continue to shape our School in the years<br />

ahead. This past year, planning for a strong <strong>and</strong> secure future was the overarching goal of our Board <strong>and</strong> School leadership.<br />

We underst<strong>and</strong> that for many people, perhaps for all of us, the 2010-2011 school year will be remembered as the<br />

year we announced our plan to consolidate our Northbrook <strong>and</strong> Skokie campuses. Data from our Sustainability 2040<br />

initiative indicated that both campuses were underutilized <strong>and</strong> consolidation was the only way to ensure our future.<br />

This announcement came with a great deal of emotion. 9301 Gross Point Road is more than a building – it has been<br />

a second home filled with memories of learning <strong>and</strong> friendship. However, our community demonstrated its incredible<br />

strength as everyone united to build a new <strong>and</strong> stronger future together.<br />

We believe that through this consolidation we will maximize our space <strong>and</strong> resources, <strong>and</strong> begin to fully realize our vision<br />

of a financially healthy, academically excellent, warm, <strong>and</strong> diverse Jewish day school housed in an exceptional facility.<br />

We are grateful for the tremendous support from the entire community, <strong>and</strong> for the continued trust of our <strong>Schechter</strong> families.<br />

“Looking ahead, we envision a financially healthy,<br />

academically excellent, warm <strong>and</strong> diverse Jewish day school<br />

housed in an exceptional facility.”<br />

Throughout the transition process, our School leadership, faculty <strong>and</strong> staff, Parent Organizations, <strong>and</strong> Board have worked<br />

tirelessly to ensure that our students continue to flourish. In addition, during the summer months, our educational <strong>and</strong><br />

administrative leadership teams have worked non-stop with our building <strong>and</strong> maintenance staff to determine the optimal<br />

use of space to create a warm, nurturing, <strong>and</strong> stimulating learning environment that supports our Pre-K – 2nd grade<br />

community in Skokie <strong>and</strong> our K-8th grade community in Northbrook.<br />

This year marks our School’s 50th anniversary. It is a monumental achievement for any business or institution to make it<br />

to its Jubilee year, <strong>and</strong> kal v’homer (how much more so) a Jewish day school. While it is natural to look back at all that<br />

has been accomplished to make <strong>Schechter</strong> an enduring institution in the Chicago Jewish community, we hope you will also<br />

look ahead to dream of all that we could accomplish in our next 50 years with your continued support.<br />

Anyone connected to <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> knows that <strong>Schechter</strong> is much more than a school; it is a place that transforms the<br />

lives of both children <strong>and</strong> families. We believe that nothing compares to a <strong>Schechter</strong> education, <strong>and</strong> we will work vigilantly<br />

to demonstrate that <strong>Schechter</strong> is the best investment parents can make for their family, <strong>and</strong> that <strong>Schechter</strong> merits the<br />

strongest support from our Chicago Jewish community <strong>and</strong> beyond.<br />

On the pages that follow we present highlights from the 2010-2011/5771 school year, a financial report, enrollment<br />

statistics, <strong>and</strong> our Honor Roll of Donors. On behalf of everyone at <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong> School, we want to express our<br />

deepest appreciation for your continued support <strong>and</strong> commitment to our School, our students, <strong>and</strong> our families.<br />

Together, may we all go from strength to strength.<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> Prepares Us<br />

For The Future<br />

We leave <strong>Schechter</strong> prepared to climb<br />

any mountain. Our General Studies <strong>and</strong><br />

Judaic Studies have prepared us for any<br />

future, academically <strong>and</strong> socially. We<br />

were taught not just to find answers but<br />

also to ask questions; we have learned<br />

how to use multiple lenses to examine<br />

social <strong>and</strong> religious issues. For our<br />

social justice unit in language arts, we<br />

integrated Judaism <strong>and</strong> General Studies<br />

by identifying how characters in various<br />

books followed principles that we have<br />

in our Torah. In math class, we do more<br />

than just prepare for high school; we<br />

challenge ourselves. We go into high<br />

school with confidence that we have<br />

what it takes to succeed.<br />

The real test of a school is how its students<br />

fare in different, more challenging<br />

environments. We leave here with a<br />

monolithic climb ahead, <strong>and</strong> there will<br />

be many more challenges throughout<br />

our lives. Because of our education at<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>and</strong> the maps that we leave<br />

here with, those climbs seem a little less<br />

daunting, a little more attainable.<br />

As we all go off to high school we will<br />

branch out <strong>and</strong> grow apart. But throughout<br />

our lives, we will still feel the sense<br />

of family <strong>and</strong> kinship that we do now.<br />

Our similarities unite us as a family,<br />

as our differences strengthen us as<br />

individuals. Truly, we have come so far.<br />

Highlights of the 2010-2011/5771 School Year<br />

Hundreds of energetic <strong>and</strong> enthusiastic<br />

children entered our Northbrook <strong>and</strong><br />

Skokie campuses last August from<br />

more than 30 communities throughout<br />

the Chicago area. Throughout the<br />

school year, our dynamic faculty was<br />

dedicated to helping each <strong>and</strong> every<br />

child reach his or her full potential.<br />

Our students left school in June with new<br />

skills <strong>and</strong> a greater underst<strong>and</strong>ing of<br />

who they are as Americans <strong>and</strong> Jews.<br />

We introduced a new mission<br />

statement <strong>and</strong> core values that resulted<br />

from the work of our Strategic Visioning<br />

Task Force last year. Our students <strong>and</strong><br />

our Kehillah – our community – are at<br />

the heart of our mission (see annual<br />

report cover) <strong>and</strong> core values (inside<br />

front cover).<br />

We exp<strong>and</strong>ed to a Pre-K – 8th grade<br />

Jewish day school with the opening of<br />

our new Marvell D. <strong>and</strong> Stanley J. z"l<br />

Ginsburg Pre-K program for three- <strong>and</strong><br />

four-year-olds at our Skokie Campus.<br />

This program has succeeded beyond<br />

our expectations, <strong>and</strong> we began the<br />

2011-2012 school year with a second<br />

classroom <strong>and</strong> an enrollment that has<br />

grown from 9 to 24.<br />

We are thrilled to report that our<br />

commitment to excellence in all curricular<br />

areas has paid off substantially. Our<br />

General Studies curriculum is both<br />

research- <strong>and</strong> inquiry-based, <strong>and</strong><br />

encourages students to become critical<br />

thinkers <strong>and</strong> confident learners. Our<br />

new middle school science curriculum<br />

is at the forefront of science education<br />

in the United States. Our commitment<br />

to meeting the needs of diverse<br />

learners continues to grow.<br />

Beginning in the youngest grades,<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> students were exposed to the<br />

latest technology to enrich their learning<br />

experience in both General <strong>and</strong> Judaic<br />

Studies. We equipped more classrooms<br />

with SMART Boards <strong>and</strong> students used<br />

state-of-the-art computer labs <strong>and</strong><br />

mobile labs.<br />

In our Judaic Studies curriculum, we<br />

set the stage to exp<strong>and</strong> our integration<br />

of the successful St<strong>and</strong>ards <strong>and</strong><br />

Benchmarks program for teaching<br />

Chumash into third grade. Applying<br />

st<strong>and</strong>ards-based learning in Jewish<br />

Studies is part of our commitment to<br />

excellence. We continue to look for<br />

additional ways to integrate our General<br />

<strong>and</strong> Judaic Studies curricula so that<br />

our students benefit from the opportunity<br />

to think in multi-dimensional ways <strong>and</strong><br />

make connections across a variety of<br />

disciplines <strong>and</strong> perspectives.<br />

We honored Beth <strong>and</strong> Jeff Kopin at<br />

our Annual Dinner, held at the Art<br />

Institute of Chicago. The event brought<br />

more than 500 members of our<br />

community together, kicking off our<br />

Annual Campaign. We are grateful to<br />

the Kopins for their commitment to<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>and</strong> for naming our new<br />

Pre-K program in memory of Beth’s<br />

father <strong>and</strong> in honor of her mother.<br />

There is no greater testament to the<br />

value of a <strong>Schechter</strong> education than to<br />

see our <strong>Schechter</strong> graduates return<br />

as <strong>Schechter</strong> parents. This year, our<br />

student body included 75 children of<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> alumni <strong>and</strong> several students<br />

with two alumni parents! At our 8th<br />

grade commencement ceremony, 13<br />

graduates received their diplomas<br />

from a parent who had attended<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong>. This act of Midor L’dor is in<br />

keeping with our commitment to pass<br />

on our Jewish traditions. We look<br />

forward to welcoming more children<br />

of alumni in the years ahead.<br />

We received a grant from the iCenter<br />

to pilot a special project at our<br />

Skokie Campus this year called Mas’ei<br />

Mishpachot, Family Journeys. This<br />

initiative is designed to reach out <strong>and</strong><br />

support the parents of our youngest<br />

students in Pre-K, kindergarten, <strong>and</strong><br />

first grade to open the door for<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> families to Jewish education<br />

<strong>and</strong> observance.


Deborah Stern Harris, Sager Middle<br />

School Technology Coordinator, was<br />

selected as the Grinspoon-Steinhardt<br />

Award winner from the Metropolitan<br />

Chicago area. The award is given to<br />

a local educator who continues to<br />

make a lasting impact on the lives of<br />

Jewish children, <strong>and</strong> who demonstrates<br />

excellence in Jewish education. Mrs.<br />

Harris was nominated for the award<br />

for her outst<strong>and</strong>ing efforts in the field<br />

of technology. Debbie joins <strong>Schechter</strong><br />

Grinspoon-Steinhardt award winners<br />

Irene Sufrin, Zipporah Perlmutter,<br />

<strong>and</strong> Pnina Orbach.<br />

Throughout the year <strong>and</strong> during the<br />

summer, our faculty <strong>and</strong> staff participated<br />

in numerous opportunities for professional<br />

development. Curricular areas included<br />

math, science, language arts, Hebrew,<br />

history, Talmud, Bible, Halacha,<br />

Jewish law, song-leading <strong>and</strong> Tefillah,<br />

communications, video, technology, <strong>and</strong><br />

more. In addition, 14 members of<br />

our faculty in the <strong>Schechter</strong> cohort of the<br />

Spertus Master’s of Jewish Professional<br />

Studies Program attended two intensive<br />

seminars on the role that Jewish aesthetics<br />

plays in our culture <strong>and</strong> the use of<br />

technology in education. We are proud<br />

that our faculty <strong>and</strong> staff continue to<br />

look for ways to bring their knowledge<br />

<strong>and</strong> skills into the classroom to support<br />

our School <strong>and</strong> our students.<br />

We completed a major reorganization<br />

<strong>and</strong> restructuring that began five years<br />

ago <strong>and</strong> resulted in a reduction of<br />

personnel costs of just under $2 million.<br />

We also examined our expenses on a<br />

line-by-line basis <strong>and</strong> renegotiated our<br />

vendor relationships for an additional<br />

savings of over $550,000 annually.<br />

Through the support of our community,<br />

we provided approximately $2.9 million<br />

of tuition assistance to nearly 50 percent<br />

of <strong>Schechter</strong> families.<br />

Last year we trained a new cadre of<br />

parent ambassadors who assisted with<br />

tours <strong>and</strong> outreach to prospective<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> families. Recruitment activities<br />

included the return of the traditional<br />

Open House at the homes of current<br />

parents <strong>and</strong> in our school buildings.<br />

We sponsored Family Fun Events for<br />

current <strong>and</strong> prospective families <strong>and</strong><br />

Art Enrichment workshops for three- to<br />

five-year-olds. We look forward to<br />

exp<strong>and</strong>ing our outreach efforts <strong>and</strong><br />

parent involvement in the coming year.<br />

We exp<strong>and</strong>ed our community relations<br />

efforts by reaching out to our Alumni<br />

with a new Alumni Facebook page, a<br />

LinkedIn program, <strong>and</strong> several reunions.<br />

We also held a successful Torathon<br />

featuring Rabbi Sharon Braus, welcomed<br />

gr<strong>and</strong>parents <strong>and</strong> special friends at<br />

Yom Orchim in Northbrook <strong>and</strong> Skokie,<br />

<strong>and</strong> held Sichot <strong>Schechter</strong> community<br />

education programs.<br />

We increased efforts to build awareness<br />

<strong>and</strong> interest in <strong>Schechter</strong> through publicity<br />

<strong>and</strong> advertising, produced weekly<br />

electronic Shabbat Bulletins to bring<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> to life for our community,<br />

exp<strong>and</strong>ed our use of video, <strong>and</strong> posted<br />

videos frequently on our <strong>Schechter</strong><br />

YouTube channel. We also initiated<br />

efforts to launch a new <strong>and</strong> improved<br />

website – www.schechter.org – check it<br />

out if you haven’t done so already.<br />

Throughout the school year – in our<br />

classrooms, computer labs, library, <strong>and</strong><br />

learning center; in our music rooms <strong>and</strong><br />

art studios; on our basketball courts <strong>and</strong><br />

playing fields; on the stage, in the<br />

community, <strong>and</strong> more – you could see<br />

our School's commitment to academic<br />

excellence, Jewish life <strong>and</strong> values, <strong>and</strong><br />

educating the whole child come to life.<br />

In the words of <strong>Schechter</strong> Past President<br />

Izzy Weinzweig, “Something remarkable<br />

happens every day at <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong>.”<br />

Come in <strong>and</strong> see for yourself!<br />

Why I Love <strong>Schechter</strong><br />

“In three words, <strong>Schechter</strong> is<br />

community, learning, <strong>and</strong> Judaism.<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> is the type of community<br />

that promotes friendship, leadership,<br />

learning, fun, <strong>and</strong>, most of all, the<br />

love of being Jewish. Each day when<br />

I walk into school, I am greeted.<br />

Whether it's a security guard, a parent,<br />

a teacher, <strong>and</strong> sometimes even a<br />

student, I know that I’m starting my<br />

day in a community way.”<br />

– Spencer S., Grade 6<br />

“The friendships that I have developed<br />

individually <strong>and</strong> as an entire grade<br />

have created bonds that are everlasting.<br />

Together we have shared life events –<br />

receiving our first siddur, reading<br />

Torah, births, deaths, becoming a<br />

Bar/Bat Mitzvah, <strong>and</strong> many others.<br />

The love <strong>and</strong> support of my classmates<br />

has helped to mold me into the<br />

person I am today. <strong>Schechter</strong> is like a<br />

second home to me. All the memories<br />

I have made <strong>and</strong> the lessons I have<br />

learned here will stick with me forever.”<br />

– Annee W., Grade 7<br />

“When I think of <strong>Schechter</strong>, I think of<br />

my home, a place I feel comfortable<br />

<strong>and</strong> secure, a place where I feel<br />

accepted <strong>and</strong> understood, a place<br />

where I feel <strong>educate</strong>d, <strong>and</strong> a place<br />

where I feel loved. Nothing can<br />

compare to the feeling that <strong>Schechter</strong><br />

provides.”<br />

– Rayna G., Grade 8<br />

The preceding excerpts were taken from the<br />

winning 6th, 7th, <strong>and</strong> 8th grade essays from<br />

our “Why I Love <strong>Schechter</strong>” essay contest,<br />

held prior to our Annual Dinner. The winners,<br />

Spencer, Annee, <strong>and</strong> Rayna, are pictured<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> is a Safe <strong>and</strong><br />

Respectful Community<br />

Our community at <strong>Schechter</strong> is<br />

created by our connection to each other<br />

<strong>and</strong> to Judaism. At <strong>Schechter</strong>, we do<br />

not have all the same viewpoints<br />

or opinions about how to live life,<br />

practice Judaism, or affiliate politically.<br />

But community is not about sharing<br />

the exact same perspective as<br />

everyone else. Community is about<br />

having a safe environment in which<br />

everyone is able to share his or<br />

her own ideas without the fear that<br />

they will be judged or ridiculed.<br />

In many classes at <strong>Schechter</strong> we<br />

have open discussions about a wide<br />

range of topics, from politics to<br />

Judaism. During these discussions<br />

our teachers encourage us to speak<br />

up <strong>and</strong> share opinions, but they<br />

also moderate <strong>and</strong> facilitate these<br />

discussions to make sure that no one<br />

is ever put down. In this community,<br />

we have learned that our respect for<br />

one another, <strong>and</strong> our connections<br />

to one another, are the most important<br />

values.<br />

With these life lessons in mind, we<br />

know that no matter where we, as<br />

graduates, pursue our interests in the<br />

future, we can feel confident that<br />

we will always have a home within<br />

any Jewish community.<br />

Only at <strong>Schechter</strong><br />

Only at <strong>Schechter</strong> do General Studies<br />

<strong>and</strong> Judaic Studies come together as one.<br />

Some people say it’s like two worlds<br />

where there is no contact between the<br />

two worlds. I’m telling you – there is<br />

a connection! We are part of the<br />

American culture, but at the same time,<br />

we keep our Jewish identity. We have<br />

learned from two worlds which appear<br />

to us as one. It was all a part of our<br />

daily schedule. We learned to be good<br />

citizens <strong>and</strong> also proud Jews. This only<br />

happens at <strong>Schechter</strong>....<br />

The trip to Israel connects <strong>and</strong> finishes<br />

what we have learned at <strong>Schechter</strong>.<br />

We were in Israel <strong>and</strong> saw all that<br />

we have learned these past nine years.<br />

We saw the cities, we experienced the<br />

culture, we spoke Hebrew, <strong>and</strong> we<br />

prayed near the Kotel. At the beginning<br />

of the ceremony we sang the song<br />

from the book of Isaiah, chapter 66,<br />

“Sisu et Yerushalayim, gilu bah”<br />

(Rejoice for Jerusalem, be happy for it).<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> is the place where we can be<br />

happy <strong>and</strong> proud Jews. Like Jerusalem,<br />

the city that is connected to all, <strong>Solomon</strong><br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> is the place that connects the<br />

past, the present <strong>and</strong> the future – what<br />

we’ve learned, who we are, <strong>and</strong> who<br />

we will be. And this happens only at<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong>!<br />

A Very Special Thank You To Our<br />

Parent Organizations<br />

During the past year, <strong>Schechter</strong> parents volunteered thous<strong>and</strong>s of hours of<br />

service to our Sager, Skokie, <strong>and</strong> Sager Middle schools through our incredible<br />

Parent Organizations (POs). They prepared <strong>and</strong> served special lunches <strong>and</strong><br />

holiday meals, packed holiday treats, taught art awareness in the classroom,<br />

organized tzedakah projects, provided support <strong>and</strong> thanks to <strong>Schechter</strong> faculty<br />

<strong>and</strong> staff, attended field trips, <strong>and</strong> much more.<br />

<strong>Schechter</strong> families celebrated<br />

many chagim as a community<br />

with activities led by our POs<br />

including sukkah decorating,<br />

Hanukkah <strong>and</strong> Shabbat<br />

celebrations, preparing for<br />

Passover sedarim, <strong>and</strong><br />

special assemblies <strong>and</strong><br />

grade-level celebrations.<br />

Our POs also raised thous<strong>and</strong>s of dollars to support <strong>Schechter</strong> through fundraising<br />

activities including Mishloach Manot greetings, yearbooks, books at our book fairs,<br />

after-school classes, <strong>Schechter</strong>wear, <strong>and</strong> more.<br />

Through all of these efforts, our POs helped to make <strong>Schechter</strong> a warm,<br />

nurturing, <strong>and</strong> stimulating learning environment for our students.<br />

A very special thank you to our PO Presidents <strong>and</strong> others for their tremendous<br />

support as we worked to consolidate our Skokie <strong>and</strong> Northbrook campuses.<br />

Your outreach efforts helped to promote a strong <strong>and</strong> united sense of community<br />

among our children <strong>and</strong> families.<br />

Art awareness in the classroom is just one of the<br />

many programs organized by our POs to enrich the<br />

educational experience of our students.<br />

Area of Greatest Need*<br />

* Many donors underst<strong>and</strong> that there are costs associated<br />

with a <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong> School education that are<br />

hard to categorize. The Area of Greatest Need Fund allows<br />

us to use these funds in areas where there is the greatest<br />

need. We appreciate the trust that donors place in us to use<br />

this money wisely to best serve our students <strong>and</strong> families.<br />

The Annual Giving Family of Funds supports faculty <strong>and</strong><br />

students through the School’s operating budget. Should<br />

designated contributions exceed a Fund’s budgeted limit,<br />

the school directs the use of such funds to the Area of<br />

Greatest Need.<br />

For detailed descriptions of each of these funds,<br />

please visit our website at www.schechter.org.<br />

Additional Ways to Give<br />

Tributes<br />

Tribute gifts are a thoughtful way to celebrate a simcha,<br />

honor or memorialize a friend or family member.<br />

We acknowledge all gifts of $18 or more with a letter<br />

to the recipient.<br />

Tree of Life<br />

Our Trees of Life are beautiful works of art that are displayed<br />

at both campuses. Purchasing a gold, silver or copper leaf is<br />

a very meaningful way to honor or remember a friend or<br />

loved one.<br />

Matching Gifts<br />

Many employers have a Matching Gift Program that enables<br />

you to double the impact of your gift to <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong><br />

<strong>Day</strong> School. Please check with your employer.<br />

Endowment <strong>and</strong> Planned Giving<br />

Endowment gifts help secure the future of <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong><br />

<strong>Day</strong> School in perpetuity. They can be unrestricted or directed<br />

to support a specific program or project. Each year income<br />

from <strong>them</strong> provides scholarship assistance, programming,<br />

or curriculum enhancements.<br />

By making an endowment gift you help strengthen <strong>Schechter</strong><br />

while fulfilling your philanthropic interests <strong>and</strong> values.<br />

An endowment can also offer a unique opportunity to<br />

remember a loved one by naming a program in his/her<br />

honor or memory.<br />

Endowment vehicles include:<br />

Outright Gifts<br />

Charitable Bequests<br />

Charitable Gift Annuities<br />

Retirement Plan Assets, Life Insurance<br />

For detailed descriptions of each of these Endowment<br />

vehicles, please visit our website at www.schechter.org.<br />

The <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong> School Endowment Foundation<br />

was created in partnership with the Jewish Federation of<br />

Metropolitan Chicago’s <strong>Day</strong> School Endowment program,<br />

which was established to ensure that <strong>Solomon</strong> <strong>Schechter</strong> <strong>Day</strong><br />

School <strong>and</strong> our sister day schools have the necessary<br />

resources to meet community needs. All commitments to the<br />

<strong>Day</strong> School Endowment Foundation are recognized as<br />

commitments to the Jewish Federation’s Centennial Campaign.<br />

Volunteer <strong>and</strong> Make a Difference!<br />

We are grateful to our many volunteers who share their<br />

time, talent, <strong>and</strong> expertise in <strong>and</strong> out of the classroom.<br />

For information on volunteer opportunities, please contact<br />
