Kindergarten — 6th Grade

The Kindergarten — 6th grade program for the 2020-2021 school year will consistent of virtual offerings and will take advantage of opportunities to meet in-person when it is safe and advised by state and local health guidelines. Like those who came before us we will persevere through these difficult times and come out stronger on the other side. 
 

"Rabbi Ben Bag Bag said: Turn it, and turn it for everything is in it. Grow old and gray with it. Nothing is better than [Torah and Jewish learning]."

~Pirkei Avot 5:22

Our program is designed for you to find the experience that works best for your family. Kindergarten to 6th grade offers three options plus Hebrew options.

Option 1: Weekly Class + Special Programs 
Children and a teacher will log onto Zoom once a week either on a Sunday morning or Wednesday afternoon to explore their grade level curriculum. They will also have opportunities for Jewish art, music, and tefilah. When it is safe and advisable by state and local public health departments, in-person gatherings will be organized.

Option 2: Monthly Family Experience + Special Programs
Students and their families will be sorted into classroom-sized groupings and will come together on a monthly basis for community-based activities. In between the monthly gatherings project-based tasks will be given to families to complete. When it is safe and advisable by state and local public health departments, in-person gatherings will be organized.

Option 3: Independent Study + Special Programs 
Students will be sorted into classroom-sized student groupings and will come together on a monthly basis for community-based activities. On a weekly basis they will be given tasks to complete and will have a space to send information back and forth with their teacher on a weekly basis. Each child will meet with their teacher at least once a month outside of the monthly check-in on a Sunday morning or a Wednesday afternoon. When it is safe and advisable by state and local public health departments, in-person gatherings will be organized.

Hebrew
Required for students in grades 3-6. Students study Hebrew one-hour a week in small class settings (5-7 students). Hebrew is offered before and after Sunday and Wednesday schools. Students may combine their learning into one day, choose two different days, or combine their weekly Hebrew with one of the three options listed above.

Special Days as part of our Virtual Offerings
Judaism understands the power of human connection so deeply that the concept of having 10 individuals called a minyan appears in many of our traditions. Heeding that call we will take advantage of these opportunities for us to come together as a kehilah ahuva (beloved community) as much as is safe for our community. As these opportunities arise they will be announced in our weekly email sent on Sunday mornings.
