Ms. Ben-Harari's sixth grade Chumash class has been studying Parashat Yitro and the monumental task Moshe had in judging all the Israelites. Yitro, Moshe's father-in-law, suggested that he appoint judges to help him advise the people. This became the foundation of the judicial system. Yesterday, we were very fortunate to have Mrs. Shulman visit the class and discuss the court system and how it parallels the system of judges Moshe established. We extend a special thanks to Mrs. Shulman for taking the time to come and speak with us.
Parents enjoyed today's First Grade Model Seder immensely! Kol HaKavod on a wonderful job!
The students had a blast this past Thursday at SSSQ in celebration of the Purim holiday.
Last week our Shorashim, Pre-K and Kindergarten students learned many car safety tips when a representative from AAA came to visit our school.
Eighth grade students visited the Margaret Tietz Nursing Home yesterday to celebrate Chanukah with the residents. Below are some thoughts from our students:
Two weeks ago we had an exciting visit from Google. Google is currently piloting a software for Augmented Reality in school. Augmented Reality or AR is a technology which allows objects be placed in the classroom which can only be seen through a device. Google visited and transformed our Science Room and our Computer Lab into expeditions for our students. Students used activities that were developed to connect to what they are currently learning about in their classes. It was a great experience for all our students.
This past week, our 6th grade class had an incredible experience during a four day adventure at Teva.
