During this difficult time, the girls at the Bais Yaakov Academy of Queens were thinking of others and reaching out to them. Under the guidance of their teacher, Mrs. Shira Silber, the fifth graders decorated R’fuah Sh’leimah cards and posters conveying their good wishes and meaningful thoughts to those quarantined. The girls discussed how all Jews are one big family and care for each other.

In honor of Rosh Chodesh Adar, Shevach High School went on an overnight trip to the Mountain Laurel Resort in the Poconos. As the students boarded the buses, they were given sweet Danishes to snack on, provided by the Shevach PA. Shortly after leaving Shevach, one of the buses seemed to break down, conveniently at Flushing Meadow Park, forcing everyone to disembark and dance to Purim music. All enjoyed starting the trip with this surprise Purim shtick.

On Wednesday, February 26, the YCQ eighth grade students faced off against our administrators and rebbeim in our annual Yeshiva of Central Queens (YCQ) Rebbe-Talmid game. The game took place in the gym, and the boys in fifth through eighth grades came to the game to cheer on the eighth graders.

The girls at Bnos Malka were certainly all set for Purim. The annual carnival organized by the 8th graders was a huge success. There were the typical "carnival" booths with cute game of skill, together with an over-sized bouncy house and face painting. The girls showed off their creativity with their original costumes. Of course there were plenty of adorable Queen Esthers to go around and even a friendly hippopotamus. The girls were having such a wonderful time, it was only natural for them to start dancing with their teachers.
