Beren Bagel is Back at it

Middle School students in Mr. Duke's and Ms. Ruben's Beren Bagel explo are already busy planning out and designing the first Beren Bagel issue for the new school year, which will be in everyone's hands in about two weeks! We don't want to give away any spoilers, but you will want to grab a copy hot off the press.
Middle School Math

Students in Mrs. Rosenzweig's 6th grade math class jumped right into it from day one. The students learned the divisibility rules and how to do prime factorization. Who said math couldn't be fun?!
My Name Is

Morah Aviva's ECE4 class eagerly started off the year learning to write their names in their sign-in packets, an activity which will be completed daily upon starting the day.
Ready to Read

Students in Mrs. B's ECE4 class have really been enjoying the reading center this week during morning centers time and are excited about getting ready to read!
Dot Dot Dot...

Students in Morah Tsippi's ECE2 class made placemats using dot paints, which will be used for snack and lunch every day. These mats will also help the students begin to identify their own names.
Marble Coasters

Middle school students in Mrs. Rosenzweig's class started the year by learning Newton's Laws of Motion through a STEM project in which they had to build a marble paper roller coaster. The students really enjoyed the learning, designing, building, and collaboration process.
Parsha Pairs

Students in Rabbi Yudi's 5th grade Judaics class were working in pairs to translate the pesukim (verses) they learned in chumash to reinforce the material. The students enjoyed working together and helping each other out to decode the text from Hebrew to English.
Nacho Average PTO

A HUGE thank you to our wonderful PTO co-chairs Sara Samet, Annie Scheckter, Tamar Ratchcovski, and Ortal Tobul who have been so busy this week coordinating multiple events and getting the much-loved pizza lunch off the ground in week 1! Parents of new students enjoyed meeting each other on Monday night at a nacho-themed parent social, and on Wednesday parents and staff enjoyed coffee and sweet treats while catching up and meeting new friends.
