Meeting New Friends
The Lower Elementary East students got to know friends and exchanged summer stories over their snack.
To kick off the year, the Lower Elementary East students worked together on a classroom scavenger hunt.
On Monday morning, Ms. Sara and Ms. Caitlin presented their "Me Bags" to their students. Each year, the teachers and children take turns sharing objects with one another that represent their interests and hobbies. This activity allows everyone to get to know one another on a more personal level!
Happy Rosh Hashanah
L'Shanah Tovah! The Lower Elementary East students enjoyed a presentation about Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. They learned about the origins of the holiday and the traditions and popular customs associated with it.
Pass The Bull
To build community at the beginning of the year, the Lower Elementary East students participated in "Pass the Ball" at the end of the day. The activity required the students to first throw the ball to one another. Upon catching it, the student was asked to answer a question written on the ball. Everyone had fun and learned more about their classmates!
