- Our first graders celebrate receiving their first siddur with a performance and a special recitation of morning prayers with their parents and teachers. Our second graders celebrate receiving their first Chumash with a performance and each child being called up to the Torah with his or her family to say a blessing.
- Our CARES program for fourth graders gathers students every Friday to meet with an advisor who focuses on one of these important topics: organizational skills; acts of faith; health and hygiene; pro-social behavior and anti-bullying; conflict resolution; respect and kindness; and the safe use of technology.
- Typical curriculum-related field trips at each grade level include: Central Park Zoo for first graders; rivers/bridges and Museum of the City of New York for second graders; Eldridge Street Synagogue, Lower East Side Tenement Museum, and The Science Barge for third graders; and Philipsburg Manor and Central Park with Urban Park Rangers for fourth graders.
- The entire school participates in our annual Book Day, as students and faculty read a designated picture book, learn directly from the author/illustrator, and engage in a series of workshops designed to extend and enhance their reading experience.
