What's New for 2021-2022

Tribe/Community and Care: we work to establish an atmosphere full of connectivity, responsibility for one another, and classroom enculturation that builds bridges among families and students.   

Our 4th graders (Aleph Hebrew): will engage in a type of Hebrew learning that is based on earning badges and advancing to different levels, similar to how karate students advance in a belt system based on growth and knowledge.  

Themes: Each semester a theme will be woven into the curriculum that every grade will cover. This theme will culminate in a siyum (celebration) at the end of each semester. The themes for this year are:  

Mensch Mentorship: 10th and 11th graders will have the opportunity to mentor our 7th grade students, getting to know who they are and spend time with them.   

A comprehensive Hebrew program for Pre-K through 3rd grade: In order to build a stronger auditory Hebrew base, students in PreK through 3rd will be engaged in Hebrew Through Movement and other experiential ways to learn Hebrew. To learn more about this program visit Hebrew Through Movement’s website.
