ENRICHMENT
MEDIAGIRLS

Thank you to Michelle Cove and MediaGIRLS for an invaluable 3 day workshop. Our middle school students learned that media needs the makeover - not them.  They did exercises to learn more about their own power to influence positive changes in media and find strength in their core personality traits.


SOCIAL JUSTICE

Our Seventh and Eighth graders prepared and served lunch at My Brothers Table as part of their ongoing social justice learning at Cohen Hillel.

FROM OUR CLASSROOMS
BIOMES CONCLUSION 
Our first and second graders learned about biomes, food chains, and animal adaptations through an interdisciplinary unit of study.  They read non-fiction texts, summarized their learning, built dioramas, programmed a 3D printer to create animals, and sang and danced in a musical performance that showcased their mastery of the subject in the process.
HAPPY PASSOVER FROM OUR FIRST GRADERS!

Our first graders illustrated and summarized the Passover story in Hebrew!
