Landmark News Week of 9/18

Weekly News Updates concerning Landmark HS

Hello, It was wonderful to spend our first full week together. Friday marked the start of two significant events, Rosh Hashanah and Hispanic Heritage Month. These occasions align beautifully with our core school values: "Best Self, Better Community, Better World." Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, marks a time of reflection, renewal, and hope. It encourages us to strive to be our "best self." It is a period for setting intentions, seeking forgiveness, and coming together as a community. To our community members who observe Rosh Hashanah, may this year bring you and your loved ones health and fulfillment! Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, follows Rosh Hashanah and provides an opportunity for introspection, repentance, and reconciliation. It reminds us of the importance of forgiveness and second chances, and how we can contribute to a "better community." Our school will be closed on Monday, September 25 for Yom Kippur. We wish those who observe Yom Kippur a meaningful day. September 15th marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month. We appreciate our Latinx students and families, sharing cultural heritage, traditions and experiences that contribute so deeply to a better community. The efforts of our students studying the Spanish language and accompanying culture, from the intro level to heritage and Advanced Placement Spanish, are working for better selves, as well as a richer community and more connected world. I look forward to celebrating and learning together this month and all year! If you have any suggestions for how we can better support these celebrations and cultural awareness while upholding our school values, please feel free to reach out to me or any staff member. Looking forward to a wonderful year! Susanna Announcements Yondr Pouch Program Launch This Monday September 18 is the start of our Yondr pouch program.
