Flat Morah Yaffa, Shavuot, Virtual Tour, and Maccabiah Games..Oh MY!

Dear Kindergarten,

So many things to share! Today you can print Flat Morah Yaffa, and take me with you for the next month on your many activities and adventures. There is a grid to help you with some ideas as well as your own. Please watch the Screencastify to explain how this can work, (also on the schedule). This idea comes from the Flat Stanley series, which is a book you may want to read with your children.

Yesterday we took a virtual tour of the Jelly Belly Factory in San Francisco. We took a bus there and decided to fly home instead! Here is the Jelly Belly Factory link again if you want to visit it again. We look forward to more virtual trips in the coming month of June!

Today we will celebrate with an ice-cream and fruit party for Shavuot! Chag Sameach Everyone!

Maccabiah Games are happening on June 5th  FOUR TEAMS, ONE HEART !  I am posting the team lists, the link for our fundraising page and how the day will look.

The day begins at 9:00AM *No Middle School homeroom
Maccabiah wraps up at 3:00PM so everyone can make it to Kabbalat Shabbat

OJCS Maccabiah Games
4 Teams, 1 Heart
Whether Together or Apart
What are the 4 teams?
We have the BLUE TEAM (team ROCK), GREEN TEAM (team COUNTRY), RED TEAM (team POP), and the ORANGE TEAM (team HIP-HOP). It will be a battle of the music genres!
Are we fundraising?
Sure are! This is a big fundraiser for our school. Last year we raised a little over $12,000 so this year our goal is $15,000. What makes this year even sweeter is we have a generous donor who has agreed to MATCH any donations we bring in up to the $15,000. We took the competitive team fundraising aspect away this year and everyone has 1 link to share to work toward our collective fundraising goal. Here is the link to share with your classes and on your blogs for students to share with family and friends:
