HS Information Update from Mike Dorfman:
Dear 7th Grade Parents,
Thank you so much for coming to High School Night last week at Hannah Senesh!
It was great meeting you, and I hope you found the session informative and helpful. I wanted to follow up with some links and info from what was discussed:
1) Please find the HS Night Powerpoint here (the first link under “General Information” that says ‘High School 2020 Winter Presentation).
1a) Many of you mentioned it would also be helpful to see the High School Timeline: that is on the resource page as well.
2) Here is the link to the HS Resources Web Page: There you can find more information about schools, tests, and tours.
3) We are looking forward to you beginning the conversation with your student about high school (and hope you are too!)
I’ll be presenting last night’s presentation to 7th graders in the coming weeks. Please fill out the High School Interest Form (with your student) by Monday, 2/3/2020.
4) Schedule a meeting with me starting the week of 2/10/2020 to begin one on one conversations regarding high school placement. Meetings should include students unless otherwise requested.
5) Save the Date! April 4th, 2020 (5:30-7:30) at Brooklyn Waldorf School will be the Brooklyn Independent High School Fair. This is a yearly event designed only for 7th grade students and families currently enrolled in a Brooklyn based independent school. Some of last year’s participating schools included: ‘

Feel free to reach out with any questions! I’m always to happy to help: firstname.lastname@example.org
Students have been exploring how diverse our environment is on Earth. We quickly studied water pollution and its effects on the environment. This allowed us to build a foundation of knowledge in order to start our next project. Students in Judaic studies explored the holiday of Tu Bishvat and consulted some text. These conversations were then applied in science to form Tu Bishvat informational booths. Students are working hard in preparing for their Tu Bishvat event on Monday 2/10. They have quick started the creation of interactive components based on their foundational text. We are looking forward to continuing working on this event in the next few weeks in science.
The 7th grade is almost done with textbook A as they move on to learning about Ratio, Rate, and Speed. After that, they will tackle Percentages before moving on to Linear Inequalities in textbook B.
