K311 Buddy Program
Friday, February 12, 2016
This year, the Heschel School tried something new to bridge the Early Childhood and Middle School classes. Throughout the course of the year, the Kindergarten classes have been fortunate to be paired up with the seventh grade students. Every few weeks, this group of middle school students comes to the third floor to visit their buddies, read to them, talk together, and play games. When they were first introduced to each other, the children collaborated on murals, which we used to decorate our hallways. During Hanukkah, the children played dreidle games together, excitedly calling out what letter appeared when their sevivon landed. When the Middle School put on their performance of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the kindergartners sat together with their buddies. The children were delighted to see people they recognized performing in the show as well.

"A person," the Torah teaches, "is like a tree of the field / ki ha'adam hu eitz hasadeh." (Deut. 20:19) How so? This week's Torah reading BeShalach and the poem "Yew-Trees" by William Wordsworth have led me to a new understanding of this verse, which is a timely topic in honor of Tu B'Shvat on Monday.
