Board of Directors President's Desk
By Melanie Resncik
When I look back on the years my children spent at the Charlotte Jewish Preschool, I am so thankful for their love of learning, kindness towards all, foundation of Judaism, and the community in which this all developed. The Charlotte Jewish Preschool is a very special place, and although my children’s time here is over, I am very glad mine is not.
I am proud of the work the Board of Directors is doing to fulfill our strategic initiatives for the continued success of our community school. Our group of lay leaders have a wonderful passion for our school as well as a depth of knowledge that will help us reach and maintain our goals to support, retain and invest in effective staff and board members, promote a culture of community, engage in intentional, mission-driven growth planning, and increase financial strength and stability so CJP is here for families for years to come. My hope is that each family who attends CJP is filled with the same joy from watching their children develop a love or learning, a love of being Jewish, but mostly a love of themselves and others.
