    Kindergarteners Experience Process of Recycling Firsthand

    Earth Day was yesterday, and to further promote environmental awareness, kindergarteners visited the Marin Recycling Center. This field trip gave our students the opportunity to see firsthand how recyclables are processed (including a shower of broken glass bottles!) and reinforced why recycling is so important for our environment. The students have been so invigorated about saving the earth, they wrote an Earth Day song and are now looking for additional ways they can help protect and nurture our planet. The kindergarteners illustrated their song, and they brought a copy of the song to the Recycling Center that will adorn the wall in the classroom. Click HERE to see a copy of the illustrated song.

    First and Sixth Graders Continue Environmental Work at Armory Creek

    The 1st and 6th grade classes continued with their environmental studies, which is part of both grade's science curriculum. On Earth Day, the classes went to Armory Creek (which flows directly behind Brandeis Hillel) for the second time to collect trash in and around the water. The classes engaged in a group discussion that highlighted the fact that some types of trash are particularly harmful to marine organisms that live downstream. After doing the garbage pick-up, sixth grader Olivia Y. led both groups in a game of “Oh Deer,” a Walker Creek activity that teaches about natural resource use. As always, both groups enjoyed each others company on this important day.

    Yom Ha'Atzmaut: Israeli Independence Day Celebration at BHDS-Marin!

    Donning blue and white, students and faculty in Marin celebrated a spirited, schoolwide Yom Ha'Atzmaut program today to mark Israel's Independence Day. Celebrations included a falafel and pita lunch, Israeli games and activities (Shalosh Maklot [Three Stones], Gaga, Hamesh Avanim [Five Stones], Klass [Hopscotch], and Matkot [Paddle Ball]) led by the sixth graders, and Israeli folk dancing. In addition, this morning the sixth grade class led a special Yom Ha'Atzmaut tefillah in which they read the Israel Declaration of Independence in English. The Jazz Band also performed at tefillah, playing traditional songs Nigun Atik and Hine Ma Tov. Special thanks to Jennifer Katz, Aly Geller, Jackie Strauss, Elizabeth Brotman, Judith Purpura, Melissa Armoza, and Inbar Telem for helping set up, serve, and clean up lunch. Happy 67th Birthday, Israel! MORE PHOTOS

    Third Grade Takes Play Seriously

    Last fall, the third grade teaching team earned one of the BHDS-SF Innovation Grants (initiated this year, through generous funding by the Karp-Haahr family). Their proposal involved the purchase of a set of Imagination Playground blocks for the lower school playground. (Click HERE for more information about these blocks.)

    Third graders have been immersed in thinking about the role of play in the lives of children, interviewing grown-ups about their childhood play and reading articles about the importance of play in the lives of mammals. Now that they have had a chance to play with the new blocks, they are creating expectations for the care and use of the equipment, which they will teach to the entire lower school at an upcoming assembly . . .

    Blue and White Abound: BHDS-SF Celebrates Yom Ha'Atzmaut

    Yom HaAtzmaut—Israel’s Independence Day—was celebrated today at BHDS-SF with a wide variety of celebrations! Dressed in blue and white, students began the day with a festive assembly which included Israeli songs, "HaTikva" (Israel's national anthem), student musical presentations, and our sixth grade students dressed as special "guests," including Golda Meir and Theodore Herzl. After the assembly, the sixth graders—dressed as famous figures in Israel's 67-year-old history—presented "Heroes and Places of Israel Come Alive" to lower-school classes. All students enjoyed a sweet treat just before the joyous day concluded with rikudei am (Israeli folk dancing), with the entire school participating. Yom huledet sameach l'Yisrael! MORE PHOTOS

    A BHDS-SF Innovation Grant Supports Seventh Grade DNA Project

    Seventh grade science students have been diving further into the realm of genetics and DNA by conducting a complex process called gel electrophoresis (made possible by a BHDS-SF Innovation Grant, provided through the generosity of the Karp-Haahr family). During this fingerprinting lab, the students had to make their agarose gels, load their DNA samples into the gel, and submerge it into a buffer solution where an electric current was applied, to allow the fragments to separate within the medium. After the DNA was fragmented, the students stained their results to be able to view them in a UV light box and make estimations on the size of the various DNA fragments. "From knowing the sizes of the DNA fragments, they can verify where the virus DNA originated in the simulated outbreak," said science teacher Matthew Lowe. MORE PHOTOS
