“Oh Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah come light the menorah….” The hallways of Stephen S. Wise Elementary are filled with the sounds of students preparing for the holiday of Hanukhah. Last night we were treated with the joyful singing of the first and second grade choir and Mrs. Jeser’s fun-filled concert. In addition, our students have been singing for the ECC, the Beverly Hills chapter of Hadassah, the Westfield Mall and today they will bring their energy to the Jewish Home for the Aging. Added to the singing are classroom activities around the history of the holiday (including an interesting link to the work we are doing with USC on the big idea of change and conflict in 6th grade), learning the blessings, and of course, eating the delicious latkes and sufganiyot.
As we prepare for a well-deserved vacation I want to wish everyone a wonderful Hanukkah holiday and a happy and healthy New Year!
