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

Happy Shushan Purim! 
This entire week has had Purim as its focus. 
Here are some of the highlights:

Hats, hats, hats, out of newspaper, tissue paper, and scarves
Achashverosh, Esther, Vashti and Haman puppet shows
Painting our own faces 
Purim parade then singing with Melita as one big group 
Yes to Esther's courage--speaking up for doing the right thing

Palace-building out of fabrics and blocks
Utterly delicious dough and berry jam for baking
Rahsh-rahsh-rahshing with homemade ra'ashanim/groggers
Interesting costumes of all kinds
Making hamentaschen for Mishloach Manot to enjoy & deliver 

Other activities  included lunching with Nachshonim, playing with packing material, enjoying the mud kitchen, talking about Spring and nest-building, and discussing how to stay well and healthy. 

Shabbat Shalom!
Judy, Ruth, and Ofra
