FJA Celebrates Purim
We had a great time celebrating Purim last Tuesday. Our students had a costume contest, presented a creative interpretation of the Megillah, had a festive meal with games, and ran a Purim carnival for the Pitt Childhood Development Center preschool. Thank you to Mrs. Monson and Rabbi Yoskowitz for planning the entire, fun-filled day!

FJA Debate Team Finishes Strong
Seniors Andrew Schulman and Ben Goldstein had another successful season, becoming the winningest debaters in the history of FJA!

Last Wednesday, they pushed the undefeated, best team in the league to the very limit, losing 29.2 to 29.3 (out of a possible 30 points) - the slimmest of margins in the biggest match of the night. 

Go Jags!
Calling All Student Artists!
Have you created artwork either inside or outside school that could be on a greeting card? FJA sends cards in honor of celebrations or in memory of someone who has passed away. We need NEW artwork for our cards! It's a great opportunity to have your work published and distributed very widely. Artwork should either have Jewish content or the subject matter should be general enough to be used in a variety of settings (landscapes and still life pieces). 

Any kind of art will be considered as long as it can be photographed - drawings, paintings, photography, ceramics, etc. If you'd like to create something new, you're welcome to do that, too.  

Please send a preliminary photo of anything you already have or you're working on at home by Friday, March 27 to Shana Kantor - .  
The FJA online calendar has now been updated for the 2020-2021 school year. If you want to know next year's first day of school or the breaks, you can find it on the calendar.

Virtual Events and Activities
In this time of social distancing, we will periodically post virtual events that may be of interest. Please let us know if there are other events we should post.
