Nurse Visits 1st and 4th Grades for Career Week

As part of Career Week, Mr. Roth, a nurse at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, visited the 1st and 4th Graders to teach them about nursing. Students experimented with syringes, examined bandages, explored medical supplies, and learned about how a nurse calms down patients. Mr. Roth even distributed syringes and the students had a chance to draw up some "medicine" (colored water) like a nurse.

 
4th Grade Scientists Focus on Renewable Energy

Our 4th Grade scientists have been learning about electricity and energy. Lately, they have been focusing on renewable energy and ways in which  we can protect our planet. Today, students used a lot of team work to created big vegetable circuits which convert the chemical energy from food into electrical energy to power up clocks, light bulbs and alarms without using any batteries at all! 

    
7th Graders Explore Inequalities

7th Graders in Mrs. Sheinfeld's math class are exploring relationships between integer operations and inequalities. They observed whether inequalities were preserved or reversed when operations with integers were applied to the values.

  
Middle School Prepares for Earth Expo

Preparations for the Middle School Earth Expo are officially underway! 8th Graders are working hard, researching different forms of energy, and trying to generate electricity by harnessing the power of the wind, sun, micro-organisms and much more. Their models, experiments, and inventions are in their early phases, but are already impressive.

Parnes Hayom

Friday, February 17 / 21 Shevat was sponsored by Rena and Josh Zelig, Benny (5A), and Rebecca (1B) in honor of Joey's (7B) Bar Mitzvah. Special Hakarat Hatov to all the teachers, administrators, and other members of the Yeshivat Noam family who have had such an important impact on his growth and development.

Tuesday, February 21 / 25 Shevat was sponsored by Renee and Lane Benoff in commemoration of the recent yahrtzeit of
Hodyah (Helene) bat Mordechai, beloved wife of Abraham Friedman, mother of Renee Benoff, mother in law of Lane Benoff, and grandmother of Marcus ('12), Joshua ('14), Meir (6 B1) and Aaron (5B) Benoff. May her neshama have an aliyah.

Thursday, February 23 / 27 Shevat is sponsored by Helen Zegerman Schwimmer in commemoration of the 25th yahrtzeit of her father, David ben Yerachmiel, great grandfather of Azariah Avraham Schwimmer (KB). May today's learning be a zechut for
the aliyah of his neshama.

Parnes Hayom is an opportunity to dedicate a day, week or month of Torah study at Yeshivat Noam. Sponsorships may be in honor of a special individual or occasion, in memory of a dear friend or loved one, a birth, annniversary, birthday, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, graduation, wedding, or yahrtzeit. Parnes Hayom is also a meaningful way to pray for a refuah sheleimah, or mark any other significant milestone.
