HAFTR Lower School students enjoyed several outdoor experiences with nature over the past two weeks. Before Shavuos, Kindergarten classes helped Principal Ms. Joy Hammer fill our new garden with plants. They enjoyed digging a space to set the plants so that they will grow and fill in the garden over time. They talked about how plants need soil, air, light, and water to grow.

Morah Elaine Gross brought the Kindergarten classes outside this week to watch as the butterflies, in the final stage of development, spread their delicate wings and flew up and away.
