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

Meet Moreh David and Mrs. Raitt! This is Moreh David’s first year at the Martin J. Gottlieb Day School, and he is teaching Middle School Mitzvot and 5th grade Jewish Studies. He loves getting to show students how awesome Judaism and Jewish life is! A fun fact about Moreh David is that everyday he wears a pair of unique socks from his very large (60+) sock collection! Mrs. Raitt is currently teaching 5th Grade General Studies. While she has been teaching at the Martin J. Gottlieb Day School for 12 years, she has been in the education field for 29 years! Mrs. Raitt loves that our school not only teaches academics, but also Jewish values. She feels it is important to help her students find their voice and to realize their unlimited potential, and the smiles, high fives and “ah-ha” moments are just icing on the cake! A fun fact about Mrs. Raitt is that she taught one of our very own Preschool teachers when she was in 4th grade, along with Morah Liat’s daughter!

Previously, Mrs. Teitelbaum taught 4th and 5th grade general studies and worked as the Assistant Director in the preschool, making this her 15th year working at the DuBow Preschool and Martin J.

Liat Walker and Shana Gutterman attended the first session of TIArts Virtual Voyage, a multi-part workshop led by the award-winning artist Hanoch Piven on December 1. The teachers created self-portraits out of found objects. The challenge was to use an item that was representative of each participant. The teachers were exposed to new ideas and skills and learned how to translate them to teachable classroom lessons. #continuededucation #artchallenge #passingonknowledge

First graders learned about Egyptian cats! They learned that these cats were magical animals that brought good luck and were often dressed in jewels and even occasionally mummified!
Our first grade artists used texture plates to add visual texture in their collage of an Egyptian cat adorned with jewels and a fancy border. #artoftheday #arthistory #firstgrade #weloveourartteacher

The students and families of the DuBow Preschool and Martin J. Gottlieb Day School joined together to provide for the needy in the community for Thanksgiving. All the children decorated bags for Thanksgiving, took them home and brought them back filled with non-perishable food items. Students in the Middle School sorted and repacked the food so that each family will receive an assortment of nutritious, delicious items! The bags will be delivered next week to students at Beauclerc Elementary School, community members and the Max Block Food Pantry at Jewish Family & Community Services. #helpingothers #communityservice #givingbackfeelsgood

Earlier this week, 8th grade did a Veterans Day scavenger hunt! They went around the building searching for facts and had to fill in their worksheet. Do you know any of these fun facts? They also had the opportunity to speak with a veteran over zoom! #knowthefacts #veteransday🇺🇸 #historymatters

We would like to welcome our new Shaliach, Stav Brener! He lead an Israeli program on zoom with some of our older students, and did a fun experiment with some of our younger students. If you see him around, make sure to give him a warm welcome! #shaliach #stayconnected #israeliconnections

Capacity!
Kindergarten is learning about capacity. How much volume can different containers hold. Which has more capacity? Which has less? If a container has less capacity than another, then it’s contents will overflow!! That’s the best part 😉 #learningisfun #capacity #scienceiscool
