Dear North Shore Hebrew Academy Community,

 Welcome (Back) to School!

 It is with honor and great pleasure that I greet you as the new General Studies Principal of North Shore Hebrew Academy.  I have enjoyed getting to know the NSHA team over the past several months and look forward to meeting all of our students and parents in the coming days.

I have had the privilege to serve as an educator for 25 years.  Every September I experience the sense of excitement and opportunity that comes with the start of the school year.  This year, especially, there is much that I hope to accomplish.  As the instructional leader of our Academy, I eagerly welcome the task of continuing to foster the excitement and love of learning in our students that I have witnessed firsthand.  We will do so through providing a stimulating and enriching curriculum, fostering individual personalized attention and utilizing innovative teaching methodologies and technologies.  It will be a year filled with hard work but I am certain that the results will demonstrate the outstanding abilities of our faculty and students.

As you know, the school theme this year is (איזהו חכם? הלומד מכל אדם (אבות ד’:אי – “Who is wise?  One who learns from everyone.”  This mishnah resonates especially strongly with me as I embark on this new journey.  I look forward to speaking with each of you individually in the coming weeks and learning about you, your children and your families.  

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me by phone at (516) 487-8687 or by email at osigal@nsha.org should you have any questions or concerns.  In the meantime, welcome to the 2016-2017 school year.

Sincerely,

Mr. Ofier Sigal

General Studies Principal
