THIRD - SIXTH GRADE
Third through sixth graders meet Sunday mornings, 8:30 am – 10:30 am or 11:00 am – 1:00 pm and Monday or Wednesday afternoon from 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm in the Bobbi and Don Bernstein Education Building. Our upper grade students are engaged and challenged by gifted teachers who share their passion and Jewish expertise. Their dedication to our students and love of all things Jewish help create nurturing environments where our students begin to hone their ideas about Jewish identity, spirituality, God, and community. Third grade begins the study of Hebrew language and reading. Each grade studies the meaning and content of Shabbat and weekday prayers that are central to our religious services.
Students will enjoy specials like art, music, technology and creative experientials. The Judaic portion of the curriculum covers the Book of Prophets, Jewish life cycle, values and ethics, Jewish history, Holocaust, Israel and Jewish identity, God and spirituality. Every grade will have multiple family engagement opportunities throughout the year.
6th Grade Human Sexuality – STAR
In anticipation of the increasing social opportunities and pressures that begin with the b’nei mitzvah year, and recognizing the enormous range of physical and emotional maturity among kids ages 12 and 13, the 6th grade program seeks to help kids cope with their changing bodies and their changing environment, and to open or increase the dialogue between parents and their children.
