On May 14, the children in Brandeis grades 1 and 2 will visit the Adams Playhouse at Hofstra University to see the Theatreworks USA presentation of “Rosie Revere and Friends.” The play is based on the popular series of books by Andrea Beaty. The children have heard the books and are familiar with the characters that represent different aspects of the STEM curriculum.
When learning about Rosie Revere, the engineer, and Iggy Peck, the architect, the first-graders designed and constructed towers from toothpicks and mini-marshmallows. After their work they discussed in what ways they were successful and how they could improve their designs next time. One of the traits the children learned about was perseverance. The students and teachers are looking forward to seeing how the books are represented on stage!
Brandeis Students Remember Six Million Lost
Brandeis eighth-grade students invited the entire Five Towns community to commemorate the six million Jewish lives lost in the Holocaust.
The Brandeis school paid tribute through song, poetry, and stories to those who endured the unimaginable. The program was coordinated by Mrs. Shelly Zaltsman, Mrs. Hagit Genosar, and Head of School Mr. Raz Levin.
