Beth Yeshurun Day School Pre-K learns about the importance of MLK Day underneath a skylight in Mrs. Bonnie Suchart and Mrs. Melanie Sherman’s classroom. 

Beth Yeshurun Day School was affected by Hurricane Harvey and, since then, students were welcomed with open arms by other campuses; first-fifth graders were accommodated on The Emery/Weiner School’s campus and age 15 months through Kindergarten were moved over to the Congregation Beth Israel and The Shlenker School’s campus.

This Tuesday, the students and teachers were thrilled to return to their home at 4525 Beechnut. The morning went off without a hitch but suddenly, a transformer blew.

“As the saying goes: Man plans; G-d laughs,” said Erica Goldberg, Marketing Director & Advancement Associate. The entire campus was in the dark. But the day went on and the smiles didn’t fade. Luckily, it was a sunny day and many of the classrooms have skylights and windows so classes went on as planned. “Together, our community has made our homecoming possible,” said Goldberg.
