Students in the “Around the World” art enrichment class with Susan Fusco-Fazio worked collaboratively to paint with bamboo brushes on rice paper, creating scrolls of ocean subjects after viewing the famous Wave by Hokusai and other Japanese artwork. This class explores art from various different cultures and culminates in an art exhibit!
Today’s the day we officially welcome new students for the 2016-17 school year. As you can see from this short video, we are all very excited!
Check out this fun video of seventh and eighth grade Science Teacher Rebecca Waintrup (Edelman) showing her students “a catalyzed exothermic reaction, in which hydrogen peroxide mixed with liquid soap is broken down rapidly into water and oxygen using something called a catalyst [in this case, yeast], which speeds up the reaction. This reaction produces a tremendous amount of foam in a short period of time, hence the ‘puking pumpkin’. This experiment is also known as Elephant Toothpaste.”
Schechter parents, alumni parents, faculty and staff enjoyed an inspiring evening with Schechter alumni parent and grandparent and author Rabbi Harold Kushner last week. Rabbi Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People, shared stories and insights from his new book, Nine Essential Things I’ve Learned About Life, in the Shaller Campus’ Aaron Kushner Library, named in memory of his son.
