Thanksgiving Shabbat/shows
We had a heartwarming and enriching week in Lower School! Today we enjoyed wonderful Thanksgiving celebrations with our students and their families. Our students celebrated the holiday through dancing, singing, and eating traditional foods. It is a culmination of the fall and Thanksgiving unit and we are thankful that we get to celebrate with our families. We are very excited to continue with our Thanksgiving celebrations with our JK Thanksgiving show on Tuesday 11/26 at 8:30am in the Theater.  VIEW PHOTOS
K- 5 Giving Thanks 
Third grade will make cranberry bread for all staff members in the Lower School on Monday 11/25. They will learn about the ingredients and measurements that go into this large baking project along with showing their appreciation and giving thanks to our school staff. They learn about all of the different people it takes to help run our school and  they show their appreciation by baking them an individual loaf of bread. There is also a story that teaches about morals and not making judgements about people. Additionally, the entire K- 5th grade student body will participate in our Rosh Chodesh challah bake for the month of November. Each child will make additional Challot that will be donated to Aishel Avraham (A local food pantry). We would like to thank our Challah Bake sponsors for the month of November.

2nd - 5th Grade  Cultural Field Trip:
On Monday, our 2nd through 5th grade students had the opportunity to attend Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium at The Smith Center. This immersive show allowed the students to explore the ocean depths where prehistoric marine reptiles existed eons ago. The show used a combination of puppets, animation, actors, technology, science, and imagination to connect our students to marine science and paleontology.
