A grand celebration at the Jewish Academy


Grandparents were VIP's at this year's Generation Celebration at Jewish Academy of Orlando

On Wednesday, Dec. 21, the last day before the students went on their Winter Break, almost 100 grandparents and special friends joined the students of the Jewish Academy of Orlando for Generation Celebration, an annual event, to share their amazing school with family and friends.

The program began with a wonderful breakfast, followed by a broadcast of the WJAO daily news. The students and their grandparents or special friends then participated in various activities throughout the school, including time in their homeroom, Innovation Lab, library, art room, photo booth and Judaic Studies classes. The program concluded with a special Chanukah assembly featuring songs by the students, the lighting of the Chanukiah (albeit a few days early) and a passionate call to action by Susan Greenberg, grandmother to Alec Sagotsky, a third-grade Jewish Academy student.

"At the Jewish Academy of Orlando, the students value their relationships with their grandparents and special friends," said Alan Rusonik, Head of School. "It was wonderful to watch the welcoming of everyone from near and far to share and truly celebrate the academic excellence and Jewish pride the students receive at the school."
