Middle School Update
Friday, March 20, 2015
A true highlight of our week in the Middle School was the Heschel High performance of "Fiddler on the Roof" on Wednesday morning. This full-length production was dazzling. We laughed, we cried, we clapped, we cheered! The faculty especially enjoyed seeing our former Middle School students in starring roles, and many of our students enjoyed seeing older siblings on the stage. It was a "wonder of wonders" and we can all toast "L'chaim" to the cast and crew!

Other highlights of our celebration included our staff parody of "It's a Hard Knock Life," and a Purim costume contest. In addition to these fun-oriented activities, we paused for a serious moment to listen to our social action club's informative presentation about the genocide in Darfur.
