Our Daily Schedule
Note: our schedule is not finalized and is still subject to change
Our faculty meet together each morning to discuss plans for the day and share ideas.
After students arrive, the whole school engages in kadosh (holy/separate) where we use traditional prayers as a basis for exploration of mindfulness, building community, and fostering emotional dispositions such as gratitude, empathy, and awe (click here to learn more about the benefits of mindfulness in school)
Following kadosh, the community partakes in an outdoor morning walk (click here to learn about the benefits of physical activity, especially at the start of the day).
The morning is then filled with our literacy, language (including the opportunity to learn Hebrew), and math blocks (with a recess in the middle), where students engage in differentiated skill building in these core areas.
Following lunch and another recess (click here to learn about the benefits of recess in school), students engage in their interdisciplinary learning block. For the afternoon, classes delve into a driving question or solving a problem from a variety of lenses (including social studies, science, and Judaics) in order to gain a deep understanding of the questions involved and seek their own answers while applying their knowledge to real-world problems (all while engaging in standards-aligned learning).
Art, music, physical education, and technology play a key role in this learning throughout the interdisciplinary times, and a third recess is integrated into the middle of the interdisciplinary block.
At the end of the day, in smaller groups, students gather for a closing circle in order to reflect on the day.
