*A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT 3rd GRADE: 3rd grade is a unique grade, floating between “Upper Elementary” and “Lower Elementary” learning. The 8-9 year old child is still a young child, but also ready for greater challenge and exploration of more interests, independence and individuality.

Each 3rd grader, develops , (as all children do), at their own pace. If YOUR 3rd grader is ready for greater challenge, you have the OPTION to join the Hebrew Learning that we offer mid-week for 4th-6th grade students. This program is more rigorous and focused than our usual introductory Jewish Learning Programs and activities. If this does not appeal to you, that’s fine. Your 3rd grader is welcome to stay connected to the K-3 cohort, attending Sunday programming only and occasional special offerings throughout the year.

Participation in the Hebrew program requires a mid-week commitment every week and an increased tuition. Mid-week Hebrew becomes a requirement of the program in 4th grade, for all students who are beginning preparation for B’mitzvah during their 7th grade year.
