Dr. Sarah Schlesinger Hirschfeld spoke to Ms. Dashiff's senior elective course Infectious Diseases. She spoke about her research on the HIV vaccine and spent most of the talk discussing COVID-19 and the development of the vaccine. She answered students' questions and left the class with a few important facts to remember: a vaccine will protect against disease but not against infection, and to remember the four ways to limit exposure - wearing a mask, hand washing, staying socially distant, and staying home if you're not feeling well.

As part of an initiative to provide students with devices that can be used for in-person and remote learning, the first graders received their iPads last week. Their first challenge: visiting their online SeeSaw class to learn how they can access materials and assignments. Future learning will include math work (on Dreambox and iXL) and Hebrew language learning ( with iTalam). Look to your teacher to provide updates on use as they continue to expand this program.

One of our favorite things to see since we have been away from school is pictures of students learning, exploring, and "being in school" at home. We revel in the creativity of our teachers and students, and in the joy we see on their faces. We hope to continue to share these moments via our various Instagram accounts. We recently received a photo of our young students who recreated the kotel in Yerushalyim, with personal notes to Hashem for the refuah, wellbeing, of those who are sick and in need. It was a wonderful way to begin the Yom season...

The 6th grade enjoyed an interdisciplinary science and computer literacy project this week. In science, students have been learning about different organisms' energy roles in food chains/pyramids as part of their science curriculum. In computer literacy, they have been learning how to block code using micro:bit, a small programmable pocket-sized computer. The 6th graders learned how to code the rock, paper, or scissors game on micro:bit. They created a code that instructed their micro:bit to choose rock, paper, or scissors when shaken. When shaken the micro:bit spells out one of the words (rock, paper, or scissors). This week, in a joint science and computer literacy lesson, students created a customized version of the game in pairs, listing names of organisms from a chosen food pyramid (instead of rock, paper, or scissors). Food pyramids display the feeding relationships between its organisms in a linear manner. That is, organisms at the top of a food pyramid eat the ones below them and so on. The 6th grade students played three rounds of the food chain game they designed and recorded their organisms and scores on a worksheet. The winner was the one that drew organisms from the highest level of their food pyramid.
