Gesher is a unique program which was developed to ensure a smooth transition for all new and returning third grade students. Gesher classes meet once a week for two hours in a smaller class setting where the teacher to student ration is 1:8.
Third grade is a very exciting and important year for our Gesher students. The curriculum is challenging and interactive - our goal is to provide our third graders with a solid foundation on which to build.
Gesher students learn to read and write Hebrew. They learn about Jewish holidays, traditions, and our land of Israel. They also explore the idea that each of us has the power to make the world more holy.
Our Gesher students also learn how to pray! We sing new songs, learn new words of liturgy, reflect on the themes of how prayer can bring order, beauty, meaning, and insight into our lives. Music, Jewish cooking, family education programs, class trips, and participation in tzedakah programs enrich the Gesher curriculum.
