Spring is finally here!

With the arrival of Spring, classes prepared for Passover and Easter celebrations. Planting flower seeds in the classroom, gardening outside, coloring eggs, tasting them on the Seder plate, and of course the Egg Hunt are some of the events you may have heard about. And here are the pictures:)
Have a wonderful- short but sweet-Spring break!


Happy Spring!

St. Patrick's Day

Irish festivities were found in each classroom in honor of St. Patrick.  Children enjoyed songs, work, games, books, food and a leprechaun's pot of gold left just for them! Remember there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and if you ever catch a leprechaun he is obliged to tell you where he hid the pot of gold!

Wearing Green

Shamrock for good luck
