    Kindergarten and Eighth Grade Buddies Enjoy Interactive Model Seder

    In celebration of Passover, kindergarteners participated in a model Seder hosted and led by their eighth grade buddies. Working in small groups, the eighth graders created skits, poems, and songs to retell the story of Passover in a lively, interactive way. The kindergarteners then performed their own play of the story of Passover. The model Seder followed the traditional order of the Seder, in which the students dipped parsley in salt water, ate charoset on matzah, and sang the "Ma Nishtana" (The Four Questions). A special thank you to the 8th grade families for providing the food for this model Seder! MORE PHOTOS

    Second Graders Host Medieval Banquet

    To culminate their cultural and historical study of Medieval times and castles, second graders hosted parents and guests for a Medieval banquet. The event began with Queen Ruth (second grade teacher Ruth Rosenthal) knighting or 'lady-ing' each member of the class; each second grader then told the audience one fact he or she learned about Medieval times. "I learned cannons weigh about 20,000 pounds," said Michael O. Students then performed a reader's theater, reading the story Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal: A Worldwide Cinderella by Paul Fleishmann, which includes lines from the story of Cinderella as told from different parts of the world, a topic the second graders studied in class. Finally, second graders put on a show for their guests. Performances included a sword fighting demonstration, magic tricks, hula hooping, and dancing and singing. The event concluded with castle-related treats for all. The ladies and knights of second grade did a wonderful job of getting into character and educating their guests about the history and culture Medieval times. MORE PHOTOS

    Middle School Art Students Hone Skills, Transform Images

    The seventh and eighth grade art elective allows students to choose what type of art they'd like to hone: contemporary collage or drawing. Contemporary collage teaches students how to "transform images and create meaning," says art teacher Lisa Levy. Students look through magazines, cutting out images that have meaning to them. They are then challenged to create something new with the collection of images. In a digital world, collage is a way to physically touch and create something outside of the day-to-day digital life. And collaging also involves recycling, making this a green project! Students who choose drawing are adding a self-portrait to their 7-year portfolio for this academic year. The self-potrait is an annual project beginning in first grade and demonstrates student growth from first to eighth grade. Through this portfolio project, the seventh and eighth graders are able to refine their drawing skills. MORE PHOTOS

    BHDS Celebrates Passover

    Students in Judaic studies classes have been studying about and preparing to observe the Pesach holiday, which begins this year with the first seder on Friday evening. Today, in lieu of the regular Thursday morning lower school tefillot, grades 3-5 sang holiday songs and then divided into groups to explore stations set up in the gym, each station representing one of the 15 steps of the seder.

    Students in grades K-2 participated in a lively version of the traditional bedikat chameitz ("search for chameitz"). Third graders in Hebrew class dressed as the characters in the tale of "Chad Gadya"—"One Kid"—and sang the song together.

    Earlier in the week, lower school students enjoyed a dialogue about the holiday with Israeli teenagers during a special visit from the Diller Teen Fellows. The Israeli teens shared games, stories, and their own Passover traditions with our students . . .
