Abrams 5th Grade Students
Singing Chanukah songs at the
NJ State Capital
Abrams 5th grade students participated in the Chanukah celebration at the New Jersey State Capital this week. Led by Mrs. Solomon, the students sang for the Lt. Governor and other notables at the annual event.
8th Grade and Abrams Residence Seniors
Abrams 8th grade students visited seniors at the Abrams Residence to celebrate Chanukah. AHA students and seniors decorated Chanukah mugs, ate Sufganiot, sang Chanukah songs, and shared time and stories with one another.
The visit was part of the “Better Together” program funded by a grant from the Legacy Heritage Fund to provide opportunities for students to interact with the elderly and engage in meaningful dialogue.
A great time was had by all- Happy Chanukah!
Abrams students created their artistic interpretations of Menorahs for the AHA annual Menorah contest!
The next unit in our AHA/Technion middle school curriculum is Chemistry, and it will begin when school resumes in January.
Orit Hazzan, our colleague at Technion, will be speaking at this year’s National Day School Conference in Philadelphia this year: Technion STEM Education: How to Deliver Successful and Sustainable Implementation.
