Students in Action
Kitah Dalet is studying California's history and took a field trip to Sacramento this week. They toured the Capitol Building, visited a school house from the 1800's and the Wells Fargo Museum, and explored the Old Sacramento Waterfront District.
The Middle School screened the coming-of-age film Abe that was hosted by the Silicon Valley Jewish Film Festival.
Hands on learning is so much fun in Yavneh's Kitchen. Kitah Alef baked "Alef Bet" cookies.
Kitah Gimel Dvash led the Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Ceremony on Friday and shared their writings along with songs of peace and hope.
We honored our United States military veterans at our Veterans Day Assembly on Monday with patriotic songs led by Kitah Dalet.
Kitah Gan Geffen is continuing garden exploration. They observed their recently planted seedlings and drew how they changed.
Kitah Gan Rimon is learning the importance of eating healthy and eating a rainbow of food every day. In STEAM, they used fresh fruits and vegetables and wooden toothpicks and skewers to build their own houses. When they finished building, they shared and ate their creations.
