Bnos Yisroel Elementary is focusing on Kavod this school year. The girls will seek out ways to give kavod to others and by doing so becoming deserving of respect themselves. We welcomed Mrs. Liebman for a special kick off activity where the girls enjoyed music and interacted with multiple grades.

At our Rosh Chodesh Kislev assembly Mrs. Turk once again brought out the theme as she encouraged the elementary students to UNLOCK KINDNESS. First, there was a skit demonstrating lack of respect on the playground, in the hallway, at lunch tables, and during group work, then she challenged the girls to learn how to unlock kindness to address these scenarios.

Students had to use UV light pens to read the message which said, “Look for everyone’s hidden beauty.” By the end of the activity they had uncovered all five messages below:
