Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler recently toured Maimonides Jewish Day School, meeting with the faculty, staff, and administration. He applauded them for their vision in education.
Maimonides Jewish Day School is the first private Jewish school in the Pacific Northwest to achieve dual Judaic and General studies accreditation. Our kids know their stuff, and they treat their knowledge and their peers with kindness and respect.
But don’t take our word for it. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler recently toured our school, met our faculty, staff, and administration, and spent a lot of time with our students, in their classrooms and on the playground.
“I really appreciate the focus on values, and on being nice to each other, and treating other people with respect,” Mayor Wheeler observed.
After viewing a lesson about humorous poems called limericks, Mayor Wheeler was moved to say, “In a world where the values you teach of kindness, courtesy, and respect are so lacking, it’s really important we start with the kids, and I appreciate your focus here. You’re doing such a great job. You have a lot to be proud of.”
At the end of Mayor Wheeler’s visit, he told our students, “Your parents have chosen wisely by having you be here. This is a good investment for your future; this is a good investment for the community.”
Maimonides made a lasting impression on our mayor. You can make a lasting impression on Maimonides by investing in our values, our education, your kids, and their future!
