    5th Grade - Quiz

    Have a wonderful Spring Break!

    The 6th grade participated in the mitzva of creating "mishloach manot" baskets which they filled with the traditional Purim pastry - Oznei Haman. They loved making the cookies, filling them with different fillings and then decorating the baskets and creating a Happy Purim card. Once the pastries had baked (and were cool enough to handle) students chose the names of 4 - 5 staff or faculty and went around campus to deliver their baskets to them.

    Have a Wonderful Winter Break!
    Last week we held our 5th Annual Top Chef Latke Baking Competition with the 7th graders. Each group was judged on their Hebrew skills, the taste of their latkes and their team work.
    We would like to thank Amir and my high school Hebrew 3 class who were the judges for the Hebrew part of the competition. They went to each group and spoke to them in Hebrew about what they were doing (making latkes) and about Chanukah in general.
    We are appreciative of the support from Chef Scott and all his kitchen crew. They did an amazing job of providing the students everything that they needed to make and bake their latkes. They also judged the tasting of each groups' creation including the "secret ingredient" that each group chose.
    The students showed great collaborative skills and produced creative jingles highlighting their team's name. Many of them made a point of letting us know what a fun Hebrew day they experienced.
