Summer break is on the horizon

High-performing members of the Art Institute will be inducted into the National Art Honor Society. Ninth-grade students may be eligible for the Principals’ Honor Roll, and some students qualify for the Chesed (community service) Honor Society if they have gone above and beyond the chesed requirements. HAFTR requires students to have a minimum of 25 chesed hours per year; however, the majority of students go well above this requirement. HAFTR students consider it a great honor to help others. Upon opening the letter that informs us that we have been accepted to an honor society, a great feeling of awe and excitement flushes across our faces. Our hard work paid off!

Although we are excited to be done with school, there are many aspects we will miss over the summer. The first few days (maybe even the first two weeks) we are more than happy to have a break from the rigorous coursework of high school. However, after that, we begin to get eager to get back to school. We miss learning, we miss our teachers, and we simply miss the HAFTR environment. We cannot wait to return to school in the fall — even though most of us won’t admit it out loud.
