On November 9th, our magical little school on the hill was overrun by flames in the Woolsey Fire. We suffered terrible structural damage, and our community is left to rebuild. Our school is a special place- a small community that has always valued the whole child, where families gather and form lifelong friendships, and where every student always knows they are loved.
The devastation our community feels right now is overwhelming. Ilan Ramon Day School has never been about buildings. Our families never chose our school because we had the fanciest facilities. We know that our heart and soul is still strong- that brick and mortar is not what has ever been the most important thing to our community. Yet still, our children need brick and mortar. We need a quick turnaround of cash in order to ensure that our kids can come to school uninterrupted, in a facility that is safe and welcoming.
We are already so grateful to our village of families, to our community at large, and to the broader cities that surround us for all of their love and support. We hope you’ll consider helping us rebuild.
Our Community gathered together for Havdallah to begin the process of healing and rebuilding.
