JKHA Enjoys Non-Stop Chanukah Programming

All of JKHA middle and lower schools enjoyed fun programming to enhance their enjoyment of the chag. Highlights included the two joining together to participate in See, Run, Build, in which students worked together to replicate a prototype of a poster. Another highlight was a rousing games of Simon Says in which several grades competed against each other for some Chanukah fun. Even the teachers joined in the competition! Both divisions enjoyed chagigot with the added twist of being in blacklight! Wearing white and adorned with glow in the dark face paint, students danced and sang, filled with ruach.

Middle school students put on their chefs hats to compete in a Chanukah version of Chopped. Each group had to come up with their own latke recipe, selecting from an array of savory ingredient options and a mystery ingredient. They also took on their teachers in faculty/student girls and boys basketball games. To finish the week, students were joined by their parents for a Chanukah focused learning session and breakfast.

Lower school classes infused Chanukah into their learning throughout the week. Kindergarten kicked off their Chanukah celebrations by inviting parents to participate in a fun-filled morning of Chanukah activities. First grade had a Chanukah extravaganza where the children enjoyed activities including, Dreidel Tally, Chanukah Bingo, an art project and more. The second graders enjoyed Chanukah math, tallying and graphing their dreidel spinning results and then sharing with the class. Third grade lit up the stage with a rousing performance in JKHA’s annual Chanukah production. The students told the story of Chanukah in poetic form, sang festive songs and danced across the stage. The auditorium was adorned with Chanukah artwork from the third grade students that was produced in their art classes.
