Alert

No Late Start for MS and US - Wednesday, February 1

In view of the lost instructional day Monday, the Middle and Upper Schools will run block schedules through the end of the week (C, D, E, and F rotations). This calendar change means that, except in the Lower School, we will NOT run a late-start Wednesday schedule on February 1. Lower School will still have a late start. Middle and Upper School classes will begin promptly at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, February 1.

Diversity of Faith

A Deep Dive into Monotheistic Faiths

On Tuesday, MICDS parents came together as part of our Community Interfaith Series. They gathered to continue learning about the diversity of faith in our School community. Specifically, they discussed three widely-practiced, monotheistic faiths: Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

Speakers from each of those faiths included:

  • Reverend Terrie Deloge, Associate Pastor of Gateway:61 Church – Christianity
  • Rabbi Elizabeth Hersh, Senior Rabbi at Temple Emanuel – Judaism
  • Imam Kacem Djilali Imam of Masjid Dar Aljalal in Hazelwood – Islam

The Reverend, Rabbi and Imam each respectively shared the tenets of their faith. Parents were then able to share with others about some of their own beliefs and ways of prayer. Small table discussions created a warm, welcoming atmosphere for parents to learn about the diversity of faiths in their school.

Save the date! The next Community Interfaith Series event will focus on Hinduism and Buddhism on March 6, 2019. Upper School students are welcome to attend.
