6th and 7th Grade Update
Posted on January 24, 2018
Over the past few weeks, we have been studying, examining, and discussing inclusion and accessibility. We explored Temple Israel and documented ways that TI is accessible, as well as designed suggestions to increase the building’s accessibility. Students worked in small groups to think of solutions that can be implemented in our Temple to make everyone feel welcome.
This past Sunday our classes had an amazing opportunity to present our research and ideas Temple Israel’s inclusion committee, as well as to members of Temple Beth Am’s board, with other students from the Metrowest area at Temple Beth Am. We learned a great deal about formal presentations and making sure we are prepared. Most importantly, we learned that we are all capable of implementing change and making a difference for someone!
This upcoming Sunday, our 6th graders will be designing their own Tallitot! Looking forward to continuing learning together this upcoming week.
