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

Today we celebrated Lag B’Omer!
We participated in STEAM activities indoors, like building a tower out of clay, straws, and popsicle sticks, and outdoors we had a Color Wars challenge with a fantastic ending - Cereal Box Dominoes! We exceeded our goal of 613 boxes of cereal - thank you to ALL in our community for making this happen! These will be donated to Jewish Family & Community Services (JFCS) to help those in need. It was a fun mitzvah project for the whole school!

Thanks to all of our staff for helping to make this event happen today in the safest manner. Coach Kolbow, an extra thanks to you for keeping it organized and engaging, and to Morah Liat and Morah Eta for making it meaningful and fun for all.
Shabbat Shalom!

Earlier this week, some of our youngest students were able to collaborate with our oldest students! Kindergarten wrote letters to 8th grade students about the cereal box domino project. The eighth graders wrote them back and then joined them as reading buddies to share their letters and help them read! #workingtogether #teachingouryouth #readingtime

The fifth grade has been learning about electricity! In a STEAM project, the students created salt circuits. The process involved designing their circuit, outlining it in glitter glue, covering it with salt and finally, attaching a battery pack and an LED light.

How does it work⁉️

The current travels through the salt molecules and the glue helps move the current to the LED. Not only were the students able to learn about electricity and how to make a circuit, they also had to collaborate, brainstorm and problem-solve!
