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

June 16 2016 
 
Hello, all,
 
Here's what we've been up to for the last days of school ...

In honor of Shavuot, we read stories of Ruth, Mount Sinai, and the giving of the Torah. We celebrated all things wheaty, from wheat grass (we're growing our own) to cheesecake with dates (milk and honey to the max). We examined a Sefer Torah/Torah scroll and learned about the atzei chayim/wooden rollers that support it (and us)!

The last few days of school were punctuated by another "beach day," collage making, shaving cream construction, and spending time with Melita and Menachem. Of course, our BaDerech ceremony, picnic in the new yard, and our final closing circle gave us a chance to smile, laugh, and cry. 

B'hatzlacha/Great success to our friends moving on to K, transitional K, and Israel!
 
We wish you all a happy and safe summer!

Judy, Ruth, and Ofra
