Our upper school Comparative Religions class recently went to Temple Bat Yam in Berlin to visit with Rabbi Susan Warshaw. The class got to see the Torah and hear it being read aloud, learned about the different components of the sanctuary, and discussed major religious topics and issues within Judaism and between the three Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). A valuable experience for all our students.
Congratulations to our 6th grade class on winning the shield design competition at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire for the 9th consecutive year! The students traveled to the Faire in costume and spent the day visiting exhibits and watching traditional artisans display their skills. The day finished with a live jousting tournament! TSS loves to bring history lessons to life!
The eighth grade class has been surprising friends, family, faculty, and many others with random acts of kindness. As part of a Language Arts project, the students were challenged to carry out four acts of kindness which they will then use for the basis of a reflective essay and class discussion. Small gifts, kind messages, inspirational notes, and many more anonymous gestures have been brightening our days. What a wonderful life lesson!
