JKHA Celebrates Founding Fathers

JKHA early childhood and lower school has been learning all about the country’s founding fathers and culminated their learning in a big Presidents’ Day celebration in the Epstein Stein Auditorium. Adorned with patriotic colored necklaces, students were greeted by George Washington (aka teacher Mrs. Lundner) who was the master of ceremonies for the program. George Washington introduced Abraham Lincoln (aka Associate Principal Mr. Plotsker) who shared some facts about his life with the students, and gave every student in the division a penny with his face on it to give to tzedaka. Gan came up on stage to sing a song that offered more information about President Lincoln. Next up was second grade who, along with Washington, expertly and theatrically reenacted the story of the colonies and Washington’s presidency. EC4 aleph was up next with a song about the presidents, followed by EC4 bet who regaled the audience with patriotic songs. Additional founding fathers Thomas Jefferson (Guidance Counselor Ms. Klahr), John Adams (Principal Rabbi Srolovitz), and Benjamin Franklin (Early Childhood Director Mrs. DiGiovanni), along with George Washington (Director of Student Services Mrs. Weinberg) performed a skit to describe how the Declaration of Independence came about, creatively weaving all the middot from the year into the skit. The wonderful program concluded with a performance from the Kol Kushner choir followed by patriotic cupcakes! The remaining classes continued their celebrations in class the following day.
