Previous to the first day of school there is orientation for every grade. Parents and children are invited to Lehrman to see their classroom, put away materials, and meet their new teachers.
New Family Brunch
Our Parent Teacher Club hosts a meet, greet, and eat for all of our new families. This is a nice time to meet other parents new to Lehrman as well as an opportunity to speak with the school’s PTC chairs and the administration.
Lehrman hosts a book fair each year which we call ReadaPalooza. Students and their parents have the opportunity to purchase new books with a percentage of sales going to support the school. Celebrity guests, parent book readings and other activities highlight the week.
Back to School Night
Parents are invited to visit classrooms one eveing in the fall in order to see each of their child’s teachers and classrooms.
Although a parent or teacher can request a conference at any time throughout the year there are set days (K-5) and weeks (ECD) for conferences. Parents can sign up for a conference time to reflect on their child’s growth, review their work, and ask any questions.
Parents of students in K through 5th grade are encouraged to join us at Lehrman, as well as to visit teachers in the coming years’ classes to see what is in store for their children. Schedule is available online at LehrmanSchool.org/OH!
Grandparents/ Special Persons Day
All students at Lehrman are encouraged to bring someone special to school when we open our doors and our hearts for a day of activities and fun, as well as a delicious lunch.
For an entire week Lehrman is transformed into a museum of art. Every student has a piece of artwork displayed and students bring families and friends to see their masterpieces.
3rd through 5th graders are eligible to join Musical Theater as an after school activity. Children try out for roles, help with set and prop creations, assist with costume design, and have regular rehearsals. Past productions have included Annie, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Grease and Fiddler on the Roof.
3rd through 5th graders go on Lehrman’s annual Shabbat retreat to the Circle F Dude Ranch. The activity-filled three-day trip includes a talent show, horseback riding, and rock climbing; it culminates in a group Shabbat experience that is not to be forgotten.
Pre-K Moving Up Ceremony
Pre-K students have an end of the year celebration when Lehrman says goodbye to them as Early Childhood students and welcomes them into Kindergarten. Parents, families, and friends are invited to this end of the year ceremony.
Fifth Grade Graduation
Lehrman 5th graders have a special graduation ceremony before leaving our school to go to Middle School. All parents, families, and friends, are invited to this event.
