welcome-back-kehilaSeptember 03, 2013 ~ We look forward to another successful year at Kehila JCDS. This year Kehila is pleased to announce that we have added specialized staff to provide 1:1 assistance to a number of our children who have special needs. Spencer Eede is returning to Kehila as our full-time educational assistant. She will be working closely with our K-2 teachers and identified children to provide the support needed to enable them to progress as well as possible both academically and socially. Sharon Markowski is our new Resource Teacher. She will be working with both students and teachers to provide remedial and enrichment support to a number of students, either in class or on a withdrawal basis. She will also be working with Spencer, as required to provide additional support.Our running club will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays with Morah Lauren and our first run will be the Terry Fox Run on September 15th. Many other activities are being planned throughout the year.
kehila-integrated-curriculumJune 18, 2013 ~ Kehila Jewish Community Day School worked hand-in-hand with the Herschel School in Toronto to develop and implement a Chalutzim Theme program this year. This was part of our integrated curriculum approach where several subjects were used to explore a specific theme. This curriculum approach provided a significant amount of relevance and understanding to the topic at hand.

cutting-for-a-causeApril 15, 2013 ~ There are unfortunately people who battle illnesses where the treatment can result in the loss of their hair. As part of the ongoing 2013 Kehila tikkun olam initiative, a group of Kehila girls from grades 2-4 contributed their hair, a combined total of 70 inches, for the creation of wigs for these people as part of the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program which is in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society. On March 21st, Meaghan and Glynnie, hairstylists from the Maddison Avenue Hair Salon, graciously donated their time and expertise to cut and style the long hair of six grade 2-4 students. In the photo, these students are: Back Row L-R: Emma and Talya and Front Row L-R: Maddie, Miriam, and Olivia. Absent from the photo is Naomi. The entire school body shared in the event by cheering for their friends. Kehila is hoping to continue annually with this program, if our students are willing. Our other tikkun olam projects scheduled for April 22nd, include a food drive for the Kosher Food Bank and an Earth Day garden cleanup.
