      Fourth & Fifth Grade Student Presentation at Kew Gardens Community Center
      I am so proud and overwhelmed with emotions watching some of our 4th and 5th graders deliver such a moving and loving performance in the Kew Gardens Community Center. Morah Osnat did what she does best and brought out the heartfelt voices of the kids. As I was watching from the side with Mr. Kalman I stood proud knowing that SSSQ takes pride in teaching our kids heartfelt empathy. It is as vital for them to learn that compassion is as important as learning they're ABC's. Being there confirmed what I've always known - that SSSQ is my second home. I am so proud of all you kids for delivering such a heartfelt performance.

      Love one of your biggest fans ,Tovi Ostroviak

      Our Seventh grade students won first place in the Virtual Mathematics Competition, a program sponsored by the Israel Center for Excellence through Education (E2K) and Excellence 2000. Approximately 10 teams from Jewish Day Schools in the New York area and Israel participated in the “The Treasure of the Cave” mathematics activity on Wednesday, January 14, 2015.  Students worked in groups and used their skills in geometry, statistics and logic to find the best solutions to the problems posed, accumulating “treasure” points.   Using technology the teams were able to communicate their responses, interact with other schools and discuss their strategies for solving the problems. One student noted, “Team work helped us solve the problems quickly and efficiently”. Kol HaKavod to Mr. Mushiev and the E2K students who particpated in this activity.
