Passover Celebration 2020 (on Zoom!)

April 9, 2020 | Thomas Postema

Although social distancing during the COVID-19 crisis means that we cannot be physically together for the Passover Celebration, we can still celebrate. With special thanks to the 8th graders that helped with the story, the current 3rd graders who danced to Horse and Rider (when they were in 2nd grade!), alumna Addie ’17 for helping with singing, and the PROS for the Blessing Song.

(And next year, the celebration and our meal together will be even sweeter!)

Thomas Postema

Head of School

Mr. Postema was the Head of School from Fall 2011 to Spring 2021, when he retired.

An educator for over 35 years, Mr. Postema taught math and was a school administrator at international schools in Japan and South Korea, as well as schools in the USA (New Jersey and Alaska). He taught at Mustard Seed from 1989-1991 when Mr. Cuervo and Mr. Johnson were MSS students!

As Head of School, Mr. Postema successfully led the school through the NJAIS accreditation process and the Together for Tomorrow endowment campaign, which raised over $3M to benefit MSS students. Mr. Postema loves to tell the Mustard Seed story and continues to be passionate about the mission even in his retirement.
