We ended announcements with a special prayer for our Government, led by Rabbi Berger. Miss Meyer and Miss Shainker made a slide presentation jam packed with facts, photos and videos detailing the importance of a Presidential inauguration, which was sent to teachers to show in their classrooms at their own pace. This led to meaningful discussions in every grade. We can’t leave out the fact that lunch included a special treat–red, white and blue cupcakes! The day ended with an all-school live zoom presentation with video footage of Vice President Kamala Harris taking her oath of office, President Joe Biden taking his oath of office, excerpts of Amanda Gorman’s beautiful poem, Lady Gaga’s National Anthem, Jennifer Lopez’s version of This Land is Your Land, and finally, a clip of President Biden’s dog Major’s “INDOGURATION” as the white House’s first rescue dog! Kudos to Mrs. Newman and her committee for planning a really impactful, memorable and fun day to welcome our new President and his administration!
