Fifth/Sixth Grade Family Events


Families of Fifth and Sixth Grade students are invited to the following events...




Sixth Grade Trip to The Jewish Museum
Sunday, October 30, 2016 • 9:30 AM to 12 PM
Located on the Upper East Side, the Jewish Museum has a collection of 30,000 works of fine art, Judaica, antiquities, folk art and ceremonial objects, and it is a distinctive hub for art and Jewish culture. Because our Sixth Grade students will be studying the Holocaust in the fall, we will be participating in a program called “Remembering the Holocaust.” Students will discuss, interpret, and establish connections between the events of World War II and works of art and artifacts related to the Holocaust.
