A Warrior Establishes a Solid Foundation
The Hebrew Academy Miriam Stern Rosenblatt Elementary School cares deeply about our entire learning community. We pride ourselves on having a talented faculty who are lifelong learners and who are constantly growing, learning, and improving their craft through ongoing professional development. Our elementary program is recognized for its rigorous Judaic and General Studies curriculum.
Our Judaic curriculum includes learning about Torah, Shabbat, the chaggim, and our Jewish homeland, Israel. Speaking, writing, singing, and reading in Hebrew are an integral part of this program. Our students study from text with teacher direction as well as peer to peer collaboration. Our staff enhances the learning by incorporating technology like Google Voice, Ji Tap and Class Dojo.
In our General Studies department we infuse technology and 21st Century skills in meaningful ways. The IReady Diagnostic (administered 3 times a year) pinpoints the skill level of every student in K-5 in the areas of reading and math. In this way, we can individualize instruction and provide personalized learning plans with specific goals and targets for every student. Our school utilizes Go Math for grades K-3, and Math Connects in Grades 4 and 5. The online Mathletics program provides reinforcement of math skills and promotes automaticity of math facts as well. Our students are becoming informed citizens of the world with our daily, online news platform, News O Matic.
Our Physical Education, Music, Media Center, and Art Departments work with our Judaic and General Studies faculty to coordinate meaningful and fun experiences for our children that brings enrichment to topics addressed in the classrooms.
Proper social emotional development is fostered through our PBIS inspired school wide Project Gevurah program and the incorporation of Cloud 9 featuring a Middah of the Month. These middot are reinforced throughout the elementary school year round and during our weekly Shabbat assemblies wherein we recognize our Warriors of the Week who have risen above and beyond our expectations.
The elementary program is constantly evolving and the warmth and enthusiasm of our dynamic community of staff, faculty, students, and parents is palpable. We are proud to provide amazing environment for our young Warrior to build upon.
