Dear Grade 4 Families:

This morning the 4th graders got their May homework calendar.  In May we’ll be working on the final lines of Ashrei as well as the song Tzadik Katamar.  This line comes from a Psalm sung on Friday night and the words are frequently danced to in Israeli folk dance.  Later this month we’ll spend some time with Rabbi Dan dancing to these words!  Students also worked with Joanne on a lesson about Shavuot and talked about Shavuot different meanings.  They learned that Shavuot is a very important holiday – so much so we count the days between Passover and Shavuot: 49 days!  Shavuot is celebrated on the 50th day! See you all soon!
