We Love the Arts
The Arts are abundant in everything our students do and learn.  Performing arts, visual arts, and music are central to the core of our program.   Connections are often made with our Jewish history and culture classes and the arts.
Family Involvement

We Love the Outdoors

Our students go outside for recess and other outdoor learning experiences in all sorts of weather.  We partner with our families to ensure that each child has rain and snow gear so our students are safe and ready, can get fresh air, and be active and engaging with our natural world.
