This Week in Lower School 1/21-1/25, 2019

Friday, January 25, 2019

We had a wonderful short week at the Lower School! Today, during Shabbat, our wonderful and talented Kindergarten students performed a dance to teach us about colors and led the Lower School throughout the entire Shabbat experience. WATCH THE VIDEO
Our 4th and 5th graders enjoyed an engaging show at the Smith Center on Thursday - Innovation Nation Live! Based on the two-time Emmy Award-winning CBS Saturday morning TV show, this  production brings to life world-changing innovations. The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation - Live! inspires students with entertaining and educational stories about yesterday and today’s visionaries and innovators – highlighting major turning points in the past and present technology, engineering, math, the environment and social justice. We are looking forward to more shows at the Smith Center in the near future.
The Seniors and Junior Kindergarten worked together on Thursday morning in the Lower School gym for a bonding event.  Each senior was paired with two to three Junior Kindergarten students. They interviewed each other asking questions like their favorite color, favorite things to do, and favorite movies.   They then drew each other’s portraits and each student was able to keep their booklet about their buddy. The “big kids” and “little kids” had big smiles and gave hugs to their new friends. The bonding activities will continue with a Field Day just for the Junior Kindergarten put on by the Seniors in early April. VIEW PHOTOS
It was wonderful to see so many Lower School students and their families at the High School basketball games on Tuesday. We are also proud of the achievement of the younger Middle School teams, which include our 5th graders as well- GO LIONS!
