Congregation Netivot Shalom Preschool seeks to create a stimulating and enriching educational environment for each and every child.
We are devoted to helping children learn socialization skills, building their self-confidence and teaching them the preliminary skills to explore and experience the world independently from their parents.
In addition, we seek to ignite a spark in each child to lay claim to her or his Jewish heritage and commit him or her to a lifetime passion for learning.

HaShavuah - Nevonim

Dear Nevonim Parents,

We went full speed this week celebrating Purim. We made our own
hamantaschen dough on Monday (gluten free and regular which was pink!).
We rolled, cut and filled the hamantaschen on Wednesday and baked them.
On Tuesday, we sang Purim songs with Melita. On Wednesday, Rabbi Shalom
came and read us a story called the Purim Surprise which had the theme
of including others and feeling welcomed in the Jewish community. On
Wednesday also, we wrapped raisins in cellophane and made hamantaschen
shaped baskets to hold all our misloach manot. On Thursday we had our
parade, delivered mishloach manot and had a fun carnival in the social
hall with bowling, face painting, Haman bean bag toss and bubbles.
Thank you to all the parents who came to help. At circle, the teachers
put on a purimspiel with puppets which excited the children so much that
they then made a puppet theater for us to use in the kitah. We also
read a book called Cakes and Miracles about a blind boy who is able to
see in his mind and create fabulous shaped hamantaschen.

We introduced a new microscope this week which we are excited to use
with all our budding scientists.
We sang a Shehechiyanu for Adiel upon becoming a big brother again!

We hope your weekend was peaceful and quiet after a very busy few days!

Nevonim Teachers,
Caitlin, Ruth and Shirlee
