VPK is the place to be…

Greetings families & friends!

     During Jewish Studies we celebrated Camp Fun Day! We sang camp songs and we had a read aloud from the new Rabbi. He read an interactive book about camp to us…it was called No Baths at Camp!  The  book talks about all of the fun and exciting things that happen while you are at camp.  All of the students favorite repeating line in the story was “No Baths at Camp!!!”  🙂



     We had a great Mystery Reader session from Max’s mom, she read the book A Hippopotamus Ate the Teacher! This funny book had all of the students laughing at each of the silly antics that happened throughout the story! Thank you so much, Max’s mom for reading to us!! 🙂


  Everyone was surprised when we had another Mystery Reader in the same day, Julianna’s dad read the book Rainbow Fish! It was a wonderful book that had all of the students excited, about the different changes that happened to the fish! Thank you to Julianna’s dad, for enlightening us with this precious read aloud! 🙂


Watching this building built, makes you realize we have several future architects in our mist! 🙂


Check out, our amazing garden! (The big plant in the front, is yellow squash!) 🙂


This is our Ema & Aba from our Shabbat!

Our next to the last Mystery Reader session for the year was from Steven’s mom, she read two books to us, Here comes the big, mean dust bunny! and Look Out Kindergarten Here I Come!! Everyone was excited to have a read aloud all about Kindergarten! Big thank you to Steven’s mom, for sharing your love of reading with all of us! 🙂


P.E. with Coach Rebecca was a blast! She had us jumping over small hurdles, hula hooping, and doing the limbo! So much FUN! 🙂



Our final VPK Buddies visit, was an outdoor playground session! Everyone was super excited to see each other for one last get together! Lots of singing, laughing, and FUN was had by everyone! It was a great memory for all of the students! 🙂

Ms. Ilene from PJ Library came by and discussed with us, all about Shavuot.  She read The Littlest Mountain and Noah’s Ark!! Thank you so much Ms. Ilene, for making us smarter and wiser throughout the year! 🙂




     We had Jewish Studies outside in the beautiful Spring time weather! Everyone participated in various Ten Commandments relays. FUN was had by all! 🙂



We had a fabulous Water Day! Sunshine + water + popsicle = a great day!!!! 🙂
