It was a pleasure seeing so many of you on Wednesday evening at the "Art to Restart" show and the Middle School Arts and Science Night. The art show was a tzedakah program spearheaded by Karen's eighth grade advisory group. We displayed gorgeous Heschel Middle School artwork, including delectable ceramic desserts (sixth grade), faux metallic elongated human body sculptures (seventh grade), and painted self-portraits (eighth grade). Also on display were moving poems written by sixth and eighth graders as part of the school's creative writing program.

The Heschel community had cause for double celebration at the recent Benefit Dinner as more than 650 people gathered at Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers on May 21 to honor two couples, Vanessa and Roger Bennett and Margie and Robert Imershein, for their service to the school.

Last week the sixth graders had their overnight trip to Pennsylvania Dutch Country and Philadelphia and the seventh graders spent time in the Albany region. By all accounts, both trips were educational, enjoyable, and successful. Highlights of the sixth grade trip included a visit to the Herr's potato chip factory, and--new on our itinerary this year--a visit to the Shofusu Japanese House and Garden in Fairmount Park. Highlights of the seventh grade trip included a tour of the architecturally-rich Capitol Building, and a hike in Thacher State Park, overlooking Albany. Students and teachers alike returned from these trips with positive reports.
