Lower School Updates

The Lower School gathered this morning for a Rosh Hashanah assembly where the students sang, danced, and recited several blessings for the new year. Early Childhood and Lower School music teacher Naomi Cohen blew the shofar as the students called out the sounds.

Students in 5-710 sang Hayamim Chol'fim during music class as they prepare to celebrate Rosh HaShanah next week. The song translates to "The days are passing, the year is passing. But the melody always remains."

Students in grade 2 were tasked with several different engineering challenges. The lesson tasked the children to build structures with various materials, while working in groups and following classroom protocol.


The children were asked to build their design from observation and use various measuring tools and techniques to calculate their structure's height.
