Alan B. Slifka Middle School Update
Friday, May 22, 2015
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.

Alan B. Slifka Middle School Update

The eighth grade returned from the Israel trip early Tuesday morning, and to borrow an Israeli expression, the students were "ayefim, ach merutzim" (tired, yet happy). It was an amazing experience that will, no doubt, have a long-term impact on our students, their connection to Israel, their bonds with each other, and their developing adult Jewish identities.

Seventh graders continued reading and discussing the story "Uri" in Hebrew class--enriching their Hebrew vocabulary while discussing the various teenage social situations that emerge in the book.
