Middle School Moments

Grade 6 Celebrates Yom Sababa

Grade 6 finished off the week with the celebration of Rosh Hodesh Adar I. In honor of the day the students enjoyed its second Yom Sababa (awesome day). The day began with a parent Tefillah, followed by a PK-6 buddy activity playing carnival games in the gym. A highlight of the day was a selection of student-led classes and workshops on a variety of topics, such as crystal-making, candy sushi, mazes and puzzles, Israeli hip hop, and boxing. Two thirds of the sixth graders served as “student-teachers” for these classes!

Grade 6 Explores Ancient Egypt at the Met

Grade 6 students visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art to look at the ancient Egyptian artifact collection. They were able to view the Book of the Dead, mummies, and the tombs and temples of actual ancient Egyptians.

Grade 8 Celebrates Tu B'Shevat with Grade 1 Buddies
