Dear Current and Future Madrichim,
Shalom! All of us at Beth Shalom are so excited that you’ve chosen to be a madricha/madrich for the 2018-2019 school year. Thank you for spending your Sunday mornings assisting our teachers and being mentors and role models to our younger students! You are an invaluable part of our religious school community.
While many aspects of our Madrichim Program will remain the same in the coming year, some of its structure will be changing.
The biggest change for this year is we will be changing the pay structure for our program. Instead of higher pay for seniority, we will be changing to three pay tiers that reflect your type of work as a madrich/madricha.
The highest tier ($9/hour) will be for madrichim in Hebrew classrooms; the second tier ($8.50) for madrichim in all other classrooms as well as office positions; and the third ($8.15) for a new group that we are calling Mitzvah Corps!
The Mitzvah Corps group will be outside of classrooms, but will still have a leadership role in our religious school community. The group will help lead various projects related to the religious school community (such as holiday programs and all school events), as well as connecting the religious school with other Temple clubs and organizations. The Mitzvah Corps may also do social action projects and other projects off site.
8th-10th graders can choose one of these tiers for first session, and they will have Judaics electives second session. 11th and 12th graders, a “Hebrew madrichim” selection means you will be in a Hebrew class first session, and a Judaics class second session. Additionally, only 11th and 12th graders can be office madrichim (this may include roles such as photography, videography and administrative tasks).
Please fill out the form below to express your interest in joining/returning to the Madrichim Program as well as your tier preferences. You will fill out more information, including the madrichim contract, during orientation on August 26th, and be placed before the start of religious school.
Thank you and we are so excited for a wonderful year!!
