The Power of Your Membership in Action

Features: Because of the J… 

  • Because of the J: Frank Martin (4/2/2021) - When schools closed due to COVID-19 last March, Frank faced three bored kids at home needing attention, and a team of employees depending on his business for their livelihoods. When ECS reopened last July it provided much-needed stress relief—and a path forward.
  • Because of the J: The Gandert Family (3/30/2021) - Working from home and managing two young girls was a challenge for the Gandert family. Now that ECS has reopened, they're grateful for the education, community, and normalcy their kids are enjoying - even in this difficult year.
  • A Pandemic Year (3/15/2021) - On March 15, 2020, the SJCC closed in response to COVID-19. To mark this odd and unexpected milestone, the SJCC is reflecting back at what the past year has been for our community and our hopes for the year(s) to come.
  • Inauguration Letters (1/21/2021) - This week in the Ms. Schuman's kindergarten class at the J's ECS, they learned about the inauguration and wrote notes to send to the White House. We had to share... enjoy.
  • High Holiday Celebrations (9/24/2020) - The J community came together in new ways to celebrate the High Holidays in 2020, here are some snap shots from us "gathering" in all new ways as we welcomed the new year.
  • ECS – Welcome Back! (9/14/2020) - The J's Early Childhood School began the 2020-21 school year on September 8, and we were sure happy to welcome back our students and their families! Here is a look through the lens of our first week back at school.
