Each project was judged under the following criteria: Adherence to the Scientific Method; Creativity and Originality; Clarity, Spelling/Grammar; Relevance to the Theme.

Rosh Chodesh Iyar was celebrated in Shevach High School with an inspiring and enjoyable breakfast. The GO theme of the month, “Teamwork,” was addressed by Mrs. Chaviva Pfeiffer, teacher and mechaneches at the Bais Yaakov Academy of Queens. Mrs. Pfeiffer, daughter of Rabbi Paysach Krohn, has inspired audiences for many years both as a speaker and as a writer. She creatively spoke of Team and of Work, and tied both in with simchah and avodas Hashem. Her words were warmly received, and the girls left with much to think about and internalize into their daily lives.

HALB Lev Chana’s second floor was transformed this week as our Kindergarten children and moros donned blue and white to prepare for Yom HaAtzmaut. Imagination and creativity flourished as our children were completely engaged in designing and constructing five different places in Eretz Yisrael: Ben Gurion Airport, a kibbutz, Yerushalayim, Tzfat, and Eilat. Our Nursery and Kindergarten tourists had their passports stamped in the airport as our classes started their tours of Eretz Yisrael at scheduled times.

The children at HANC ECC West Hempstead enjoyed an amazing Yom HaAtzmaut celebration. They crafted and decorated their own Yom HaAtzmaut crowns and Israeli flags. They enjoyed singing and dancing to Morah Kayli’s beautiful music. Thank you to HANC PTA for providing us with delicious blue and white cookies.

There was a sea of various shades of green in the halls of the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls on Wednesday, April 14, in recognition of and solidarity with Yom HaZikaron. The observance of Israel’s Memorial Day at SKA was an inspiring way to acknowledge the contributions of the thousands of Israeli soldiers who gave their lives defending the State of Israel and mourn with the families of those who lost loved ones to war and terror.
