Heschel High School Responds To Tragedy In France
Thursday, January 15, 2015
On Tuesday afternoon, the entire student body and faculty in the high school gathered to mourn the lives lost in Paris last week. We read aloud the names of the four Jewish men who were murdered in the kosher market before Shabbat. Celine Clerfeuille, the World Language Department Head and French citizen, read aloud the names of the writers, artists, and staff at Charlie Hebdo who were killed.

It is also a chance for both parents and teachers to get to know each other better, and to put a face to a name.

Winter in Nursery 209
Thursday, December 11, 2014
The signs of winter are here. The weather is becoming colder, the winds are blowing and the trees look bare. Each day, the children come in wearing hats and gloves, showing they are conscious of the cold winter weather. In Nursery 309, we use these changes as an opportunity to discuss the seasons and learn about the world around us. On a cold day, we placed a container of water outside, and we saw it freeze and turn into ice. The children often inquire about this container - "We want to see our water," they request. As they play, children learn science concepts such as the properties of water and ice.
