  • Congratulations to the Class of 2014!

    Posted June 12, 2014

    BHDS recognized and bid farewell today to the class of 2014, in a moving ceremony on our San Francisco campus. Our graduates received their diplomas after honoring their parents, their teachers and each other through speeches and heartfelt words. The numerous alumni in attendance reflected the strong school ties that remain long after graduation.

    Our graduates will be attending many of the top high schools across the Bay Area, including The Bay School of San Francisco, Burlingame High School, Gateway High School, International High School, Jewish Community High School of the Bay, Lick Wilmerding High School, Lowell High School, Mercy High School, Northgate High School, Oceana High School, Saint Ignatius College Preparatory High School, San Francisco University High School, School of the Arts, Sequoia High School, and The Urban School of San Francisco.

Students in the three grades are combined in four color-coded teams; smaller groups within each team compete in categories including a scavenger hunt, math, ultimate frisbee, hoops, table tennis, fashion design, Pictionary, cooking, Name That Tune, cheerleading, and more. It's a great way to celebrate the end of the school year! MORE PHOTOS

    When kids get their hands dirty, opportunities for learning abound! BHDS will be offering a gardening elective for all middle school students in the fall. Working in conjunction with 2nd grade classes who will help prepare and maintain our garden, middle school students will be charged with deciding what to plant—researching what will grow in our climate, planting in the fall, and maintaining the garden throughout the spring.

    As a kickoff to this project, several 6th and 7th grade representatives visited Urban Adamah, an educational farm and community center in Berkeley that integrates the practices of Jewish tradition, sustainable agriculture, mindfulness, and social action to build loving, just, and sustainable communities . . .
