SAR’s 50th Jubilee Celebration!

Our 50th Anniversary Celebration on January 12, 2019, was an unforgettable evening as our presenters told the story of the confluence of events, conversations, and people that brought SAR to this point. The word that continues to be shared is "pride", a pride of belonging, a pride of mission, and a pride of our community's identity as we honor our past and envision our future.

Throughout the program our principals, founders, and alumni beautifully conveyed how the values that are central to the educational philosophy of the school, are carefully crafted into the SAR culture and curriculum. A philosophy that incorporates Torah values of humility, compassion, simcha, and approaches each child as a Tzelem Elokim--and inspires each student to be his/her best self. Our community was energized, with a clear directive of the responsibility we each have to our children and future generations to uphold these values.

To capture all of that magic again, please find links to the evening's content:

— The Founders' Tribute video and the SAR Experience video

— A photo gallery of the hundreds of people who make our community great!

— Our online 50th Anniversary Dinner journal*

— Rabbi Irving "Yitz" Greenberg's inspiring message to our community

We extend a tremendous hakarat hatov to all the members of our community for your compassion and active participation. Because of you, SAR is able to provide an outstanding education to every student.

Most of all, thank you to our entire volunteer team, and faculty and staff, who worked to make this campaign and evening a success.
