    Students Reflect on Hopes for the Coming Year

    One of the most memorable Jewish experiences for our students every year is participating in the ritual of tashlich (a ritual casting off of symbolic sins using pieces of bread or seeds). In lieu of a regular tefillah service today, kindergarten through fifth grade students walked to the duck pond to participate in tashlich. While lower school students participated in tashlich, middle school students engaged in a new experiential tefillah rotation, delving into tefillah prayers through meditation, yoga, and art. Middle school students will participate in tashlich just before Yom Kippur. Read on for more details of both of these experiences... Today was a moving and memorable in preparation for the High Holiday Days for all of our students. MORE PHOTOS

    Second Graders Learning Ukelele as Introduction to String Family of Instruments

    This week, the second graders were introduced to a new piece of the music curriculum – learning to play the ukulele! The ukelele is the perfect introductory instrument to the string family to teach the second graders how to use their fingers and play the chords. A key component to the 3rd grade music curriculum is learning to play the guitar, so the ukulele provides a smaller medium for the second graders to learn string instruments and prepare for the guitar for next year. Eventually our second grade musicians will be able to sing and play at the same time, and they will be performing with their ukuleles at the music tefillah in the spring. What is the first song the class is learning? Yellow Submarine, originally performed by The Beatles.

    Apples—at the Core of Kindergarten Learning

    This week kindergarteners got a taste of the importance of apples across both the general and Jewish studies curricula. Seeing that apples and honey are on the tips of our tongues this time of year, the teachers are using apples as an overarching theme—one could say, a "common core"—to create engaging, meaningful learning experiences for the students. Using themes as a way to integrate math, science, language arts, social studies, and Jewish studies sparks student interest and motivates them to learn.

    Eighth Graders Experiment with Copper and Sulfur

    Eighth graders were hard at work in the science lab this week learning about reactants and products by conducting an experiment in which they heated copper and sulfur and observed the changes. This experiment tasked our students with calculating the change in mass of the reactant and the product, visualizing their data in a histogram, and drawing conclusions from their findings. What a sight it was in the lab when the reactants (copper and sulfur) were heated to create a yellow swirl of smoke in a test tube! MORE PHOTOS
