Tu B'Shvat 2014

Event Date: 
Thursday, January 16, 2014 - 1:45pm

 On Thursday, January 16th, 2014 SSA celebrated Tu B'Shvat. Over Chanukah the 6th Grade attended TEVA, a nature's classroom program developed specifically for Jewish Day School students. The program has a spiritually enhanced, hands on, environmental curriculum. Each school, with encouragement from a TEVA educator, designs a program for their school. Our 6th Grade did an outstanding job of developing an Environmental Fair for SSA's Tu B'Shvat Celebration. Karen Rosenberg and one of our Israeli emissaries Bar Halgoa accompanied the students to TEVA.

The Celebration was loads of fun! Our amazing emissaries, May and Bar, entertained the children with home-made chocolate milk and dessert ideas. The 6th Grade taught them many valuable lessons and shared lots of interesting facts with them. At the end of the day there was a Jeopary-style game where children were asked to answer questions about the environment. It was a great day!
