Hi Fellow Parents,
I am so excited to welcome you to the 2022-2023 School Year. For those I haven’t met, my name is Ericka Thacker. This is my 13th year at Bernard Zell! I have three current BZ students and one alum (it goes FAST!) and can say with complete confidence that our school is one-of-a-kind.
I’m grateful to be in community with you and look forward to getting to know you this year. There are a variety of ways to get involved, from opening car doors for student in the morning, delivering challah, attending a Yad B'Yad event and so many more! Be sure to keep any eye out for information and details on how to sign up!
Please reach out to me at erickathacker@gmail.com at any time if you have questions or would like to get more involved. Wishing you and your family a wonderful school year.
Ericka Thacker, 
2022-23 PTC President
