It was another busy week in the Yeshiva of Central Queens Virtual Learning Environment. Students in class 3-209 began their virtual oral history reports. Dressing in character and presenting their research, giving clues for their classmates to try to guess who they are. Class 3-211 and 3-212 wrote in Hebrew and drew pictures about the different brachos they say on foods. Students from K through grade 3 enjoyed a surprise science lesson and activity on simple machines around the home. And students created beautiful Mother’s Day cards in their weekly art class.
To honor the first responders in the Queens community, several YCQ families headed out to Main Street in Kew Gardens Hills to show their respect for Hatzalah and other emergency workers. But, the most exciting part of the week happened Friday morning when the JHS students were asked to sign into a mandatory meeting where Color War 2020, the first and hopefully only virtual Color War, broke out.
Stayed tuned next week to hear the results of YCQ’s Lag BaOmer JHS competitions, including Torah Bowl, Trivia Games, Minute It to Win It, team commercial, and team song. Good luck to the Red Eish and Blue Mayim teams.
