A New Era of Excellence Rooted in Tradition

Tikkun Olam Day

Family Day of Service

Tikkun olam, the principle that we must each do our part to make the world a better place, is part of what our students live and learn at school every day. This is one reason why we unite on November 11 for a family day of service in and around the Capital District.

We begin by marching in Albany's Veterans Day Parade, wearing our school shirts and carrying our school banner. Please plan on joining us at the corner of Central Avenue and Partridge Street at 10:30 AM. Please note that the streets will be closed at the time of our meeting and parking may be scarce. We march east on Central Avenue to Washington Avenue and then down to Hawk Street, located just east of the NYS Capitol. The reviewing stand is situated on the steps of the old NYS Education Building.

After the parade, please join us at 1:30 PM at one of our four Community Service sites around the Albany area.

Are you interested in volunteering as a parent captain for one of our Community Service sites? Please let email hidden; JavaScript is required know.


Join us as we continue working on Ruth's Garden, our new School Garden and Outdoor Classroom.
