Chag Purim Sameach! This week has been a wonderful celebration of the joy of Adar at Stephen S. Wise Elementary School. Students have been exchanging beautiful Mishloach Manot baskets, they brought in SOVA items for those that are hungry, we danced and sang at the Dance Party Celebration last night at the Temple, and today we had our Purim service. It was wonderful to hear our sixth graders read from the Megillah, and they truly shared their knowledge of Hebrew and their work they have done with Cantor Feldman. We made lots of noise booing Haman, and had great cheers for Esther and Mordecai, in a fun-filled learning environment. Finally, each grade participated in the Purim costume parade, and it was great to see the beautiful queens (including Mrs. Biller), the many super-heroes and Marios, and of course our entire staff of cowboys and cowgirls. Today was a reminder of why it is so wonderful to be at an elementary school, that positive energy is truly the best in the world!
