The Hebrew Day School has received a substantial grant from the Norman and Esther Allan Foundation to support the implementation of a comprehensive new math curriculum at HDS. The Foundation, which has provided support for our music program for many years, will provide us with an additional $93,000 (spread over three years) to fund curriculum research, teacher training and mentoring, and acquisition of the technology needed to support the new program.
The new curriculum will enable us to provide greater consistency and continuity in mathematics education over the life cycle of each student’s time at HDS and will be an important part of our continuing efforts to assure that every child at HDS receives an excellent education. Our general studies teachers are enthusiastic about this development, and we are deeply appreciative, as always, of the energy and commitment they show in educating our children.
We are so grateful to the Allan Foundation for their continued support.
