We had a great Purim Week filled with activities. This would not have been possible without the efforts of our teachers, staff and administration. In addition, Jeanine Mashihi, Tovi Ostroviak and the entire PTA board were instrumental in planning events and putting together our mishloach manot. Special thanks to Meni Mor for all of his assistance as well. In a year like this it truly takes a team effort to succeed, and this is the latest example.

Our annual joint Purim Celebration with Malkut and PJ Library has moved to Zoom this year. This event is free.
We are enthusiastically awaiting and preparing for the upcoming academic year. While this year may look different than years past, we have worked tirelessly to create an environment that will feel very Schechter-like. Our plan will ensure the safety of our students and faculty, while also continuing our history of quality education and creating a safe and fun learning environment. Please read the attached document, Schechter Queens Re-Opening Plan 2020,which includes many of our policies and protocols for the upcoming year. We look forward to welcoming you on September 8th.
Mrs. Hale's students were assigned a project to create a car that would demonstrate Newton's laws of motion when rolled down a track. The students researched what car they can make and selected a piece of wood, which they filed and sanded, and later added wheels that are screwed in with nails. The results were fantastic and today students had an opportunity to race the cars they made. They were proud of their cars, had fun during the activity, and learned an important lesson about the laws of motion. Kol Hakavod to our students and Mrs. Hale on a fabulous activity.
