Early Childhood School 2019 Calendar
Tu B’Shevat* Fruit Orchard
January 18 – 25
It’s the Birthday of the Trees! Tu B’shevat is a Jewish holiday that celebrates trees and our environment. Stop by the Tu B’shevat Orchard in the JCC lobby to see beautiful trees made from reclaimed and recycled materials, created by our Early Childhood School students (with a little help from their teachers.)
Purim* Costume Parade
March 21, 9:30am
It’s time to dress in costume and have a parade! Parents and families are invited to march with their children through the J in celebration of the holiday of Purim, which celebrates how the brave Queen Esther and Uncle Mordechai of the Bible saved the Jewish people from destruction at the hands of evil Haman. The parade concludes at 10:15 am with a Hamantashen cookie snack and Purim sing-along.
Fond Farewell & Spring Fling
May 30, 4:30pm – 7pm
Friends and families of the Early Childhood School’s oldest children (Honeybee & Rainbow Classrooms) are invited at 4:30pm as we bid kindergarten-bound students a fond farewell in a lovely ceremony. At 5:30pm, the entire school community is invited to gather to celebrate spring with a picnic dinner on the playground!
