Lower School Updates

Grade 2 students spent this week celebrating A Tale of Two Cities to showcase their year long learning about New York City and Jerusalem. Students shared a special Tefillah with their parents before singing medlies in both Hebrew and English! Poems, artwork, and work in both General and Judaic Studies decorated each classroom. Students shared dioramas of their researched New York City landmark in addition to their written work, landmark prints that were on display throughout the 6th floor halfway, and New York City buildings they created in Tech Lab. QR codes were placed on each child’s New York City building where parents were transported into a digital version of their child’s building. The feeling of being in Jerusalem was alive in each classroom, as notes the students wrote and placed in their classroom kotel were on display.
