Happy Presidents’ Week!

Hello Fourth Grade Families! Thank you for coming to the 3rd and 4th grade talent show! The kids did an amazing job, and it meant so much to them to see so many people cheering them on as they demonstrated their skills. We had a wonderful time watching them, and at the Rosh Chodesh Adar parade that followed. Despite the upcoming break, 4th graders have been working hard at all of their subjects. We hope that you all enjoy a restful and fun-filled Presidents’ Week. We’re looking forward to celebrating Purim and the arrival of spring when we come back...

Welcome February

Hello Fourth Grade Families! It’s so hard to believe it, but February is upon us! This means that we are more than halfway through the school year, and from here the days only get longer and (hopefully) warmer. Your fourth graders are busy as always, learning and preparing for upcoming events. This week, they enjoyed the school Tu B’Shvat fair, where they sampled fruits of Israel, played games, got their faces painted, and made bath bombs! February break is only two weeks away (!) now, and so we ask that if your child will be leaving early or coming back...

Fourth graders are hard at work in all of their classes, making good use of this stretch of uninterrupted school. A reminder to parents that spring after-school programming begins on January 29, so please let us know if there are any changes to your...
