Hi friends! Where can I get uniform skorts for my super lean 5 year old? The target Cat and Jack company size 4-5 is too big. Tia!
Thank you Raquel Scharf-Anderson for this meaningful Chanukkah message - our children are in great hands. Dear Families: Before Thanksgiving, I had the privilege of driving four 6th graders on their weekly Mitzvah Trip, delivering turkeys and groceries to the homes of families from Beauclerc Elementary. This program of Torah-guided experiences is an important piece of our Middle School curriculum and one that builds character and empathy. In the car the children expressed to me that when we approach the home, we do not tell jokes, lest the person that answers the door think we are laughing at them. The students in our Middle School are taught not just to fulfill a mitzvah, but to do so with kavod (respect) and kindness. At one delivery, we found a young family in an apartment with sparse furnishings. After visiting them and placing their groceries inside, we headed back to the car. The students commented on how that was such a lovely home. I inquired what made it nice and one shared it was the people inside. Another continued, "It isn't things that make a home welcoming, it is the people." "Not by might, not by power, but by spirit alone shall we all live in peace." (Zechariah 4:6) The Maccabees dealt constantly with a Jewish question - how much influence should the Jewish community accept from the outside world? They wondered whether to practice, think, or even dress like Hellenists - the dominant Greek culture of their time. While there are positives to other faiths and cultures, how do we maintain our own beliefs? This question continues to resonate with all of us in our modern world. Years ago, Eric and I made the choice to send our children to a Jewish preschool and independent Jewish day school in Phoenix. We hoped (now know) that by partnering with the school, their Jewish identity would be more firmly set when they were teens. We have seen that the lessons that they learned from their Pre-K to 8th grade years have supported them and their friends as they head off into a world with challenges and trials. How wonderful that their faith has been their guide. In this dark winter season, may the lights of the candles remind us that it is the lessons we teach our children AND the lessons they teach us that are the light of our world. We are grateful that you have chosen a strong secular and Jewish education for your children at DuBow Preschool and Martin J. Gottlieb Day School, helping to ensure the strength of our people in the days and years to come. How fitting that a candle, like the light of a child, can remind us that the spirit of a people can live on and thrive! Chag Hanukkah Sameach, Raquel

• Swim Assessment: Test, Mark & Protect
o All children 12 and under will be required to participate in a swimming skills assessment and will be assigned a yellow or red swim neck band based on the strength of their swimming ability. These bands will assist our American Red Cross certified lifeguards in keeping our inexperienced swimmers safe.
o The swim test will require each camper to complete a 25-yard swim (without touching the bottom of the pool, grabbing the lane rope, floating on their back, or requiring assistance) on their front (freestyle, breaststroke, etc.) and tread water for 45 seconds. If they pass the test they are permitted to swim without a flotation device and will receive a YELLOW neck band. If they are identified “at risk” they must wear a lifejacket and a RED neckband in order to swim.
o If your child is non non-swimmer please send in a life jacket with their name written on it. We are in the process of buying some, but this may delay your child pool access if they do not have some kind of pool safety gear.

• Please take a moment to review the waiver allowing your child to swim. Before your child's first day, please fill the form out online: https://forms.gle/EoC1yMZbtiNNGA6D8

• The next document is a waiver allowing your child to come to camp. Before your child's first day, please fill out the form online: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1woBtviWtTtKx2BDgQ2cAOlvNY6p5gCIBj6D3vALcXsE/edit?ts=5ed00d31

• All snacks and lunches are included for your child, see the menus below.
• Snack am, 9:15, Lunch 11:30, Snack 2:30 pm.

• All Drop offs and Pick ups will be done at the Dubow Preschool entrance for our camp. We have another camp here for the summer that is entering on the Martin J. Gottlieb Day school side.
• Pool Time Monday- Thursday in the morning; please send campers in their bathing suits and coverups with water shoes, sunscreen already applied at home, and a towel. - - Please send a backpack with a plastic bag labeled with their name on it containing a full change of clothes (including regular shoes, socks, underwear, and an outfit).

• A refillable water container labeled with their first and last name should be sent daily for these hot summer days of fun! Please make sure it does not have a straw sticking out. We want to keep as many germs to ourselves.

• Camp Kitov T-shirts- we welcome campers to show their spirit by wearing a Camp Kitov shirt they may already have at home from previous years! Let’s kick off this year’s camp by wearing a Camp Kitov T-shirt Monday if you have one. If you don’t, we have a limited supply of blue shirts from last year we will be happy to share while supplies last!

• If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at: [email protected]

[06/06/20]   Dear parents:

Congratulations on another successful school year! We want to take a moment and recognize that we had a challenging year; most of the recognition goes to you. You came together as a community and family and faced many hurdles together. We appreciate everything you have done for our school. Now, we have time to reflect. Part of this reflection is looking at what the beginning of the upcoming school year looks like. We have decided that our future may not look the same for some time and we understand that we need to make our curriculum rigorous and challenging with daily interactive instruction. We may need a more hybrid plan that is fluid with some in-school interaction and some online interaction. We are in the process of creating teams to develop what that will look like. If you have strong feelings about this and wish to participate in the development and planning, we welcome your participation.

Now take a moment to celebrate all that your students have accomplished:
4th - 8th grade students experienced a private tour of The Western Wall Tunnels 360 LIVE in Jerusalem and the Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot in Tel Aviv
1st graders were able to learn how to write Hebrew in cursive remotely from Morah Rachel’s living room and her many videos!
Itamar Ohayon, a 5th grader, won a worldwide contest, The Yom Ha’atzmaut Global Trivia Challenge, with over 12,000 4th-8th grade students participating.
Middle School students were able to complete all of their Algebra, Geometry and high school level Hebrew classes and will receive high school credits despite the move to distance learning!
Using Mrs. Gutterman’s lesson plans, students became very creative with their art and their choices of media and explored digital photography.
With the suggestions of Mrs. Moukhliss, students explored numerous online resources.
K-5 Jewish Studies lessons prepared the students for Passover and each grade held a virtual Passover Seder.
Every Friday we held a school-wide Kabbalat Shabbat celebration led by Hazzan and Morah Liat.
All Jewish holiday school-wide ceremonies continued with virtual weekly Kabbalat Shabbat, monthly Rosh Chodesh, Pesach, Yom HaAtzmaut, Lag B’Omer and Shavuot celebrations
Right now we are improving our COVID-19 regulations according to the CDC and DCF. We have taken these regulations and made some stricter requirements for staff, classrooms and facilities. We would also like to thank the JJC for working so closely with us to keep our community safe.

Be safe, be well, and have a good summer,

Tina Silva and the Leadership team
Please call or email [email protected], (904) 268-4200

Listening to music can have a significant positive impact on the immune system.
