Grades 3-6 elect representatives to the Student Council which meets on weekday afternoons once a month. The Student Council acts as a resource for the Director of Education to inform her how the students are enjoying special programs. Student Council representatives also serve as conduits for information about special upcoming programs to be disseminated to the classrooms.
DEFI = Drop Everything for Israel
This program is designed to create a greater sense of awareness and pride in the students of grades 3 - 6 for the state of Israel. DEFI is always a surprise for the students; they literally drop what they are doing and report for special Israel-related activities, including writing letters to Israeli soldiers, voting on a national anthem for the state of Israel and completing a map scavenger hunt of the state!
