Dressed in their pajamas and accompanied by their parents, the Kindergarten class returned to school at night for the Shema Lamishpacha program. During this special evening the children performed Hebrew songs, including the Shema, and Israeli dances. Together with their parents, each student created a beautiful mosaic mezuzah for their home. A highlight of the evening was watching a video of the children reflecting on their own nighttime rituals. Every child brought home a pillowcase they had tie-dyed and decorated with their name. Before going home, we gathered outside to release our newly hatched butterflies. We are so proud of our kindergartners!

In keeping with the spirit of Purim, the Pre-K and K put on a Purim shpiel for their families. The children put on a humorous performance of the Purim story, sang songs, and played Purim charades with their parents. We also baked hamantashen and enjoyed an Israeli breakfast together. A happy time was had by all!

The Kindergarten and Pre-K classes celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday together. They watched the movie, The Lorax, a book that highlights the danger of disrespecting the environment, and created their own "truffula trees". They turned themselves into the Lorax by growing large yellow mustaches! By Morah Eve
