2018-2019 STaRS Registration
Dear Parents,

Our STaRS committee voted on tuition rates for the 2018-2019 school year, and I am excited to share the news!

There will be no raise to K-7th tuition next school year. This is a one-time tuition hold, recognizing that the North Bay will be going through a recovery and rebuilding process that will affect everyone in some way. The following year we will return to a normal increase to keep apace of inflation. Tuition rates are:

K-3rd grades $850
4th-6th grades $1150
7th grade $730.

Our school’s top priorities are to keep our community together and to emerge from this process even stronger than before. This will require our unity, hope, and support. Although we are fortunate our campus was spared, it is important to recognize that we are incurring costs and foreseeing a potential reduction in revenue in the aftermath.

You have read in the Voice and Chai-Lites about all the ways our synagogue has opened our doors to help others. We have allocated staffing resources to provide additional support to all families. We want to provide our staff with raises, knowing there will be increases to their own cost of living. Right now, we are doing more with less, so that everyone can recover and rebuild.

Now more than ever, your generosity is needed for our school to realize our mission of opening a door to learning for every student and fostering a love of Jewish tradition and community with the hope that every child will be a lifelong participant in Jewish communal life. For those who are able, I invite you to pay the true tuition cost of our STaRS program, $1500 per grade. Let’s demonstrate to our fellow parents and congregants how much we value all that STaRS does and represents. It is truly a blessing to be part of this remarkable community.

With gratitude,

Rabbi Stephanie Kramer
