This morning Alissa's class received their first chumashim (bibles). It was a great presentation and family-centered learning experience, and a hearty yasher koach to the second graders and the teachers and staff who prepared them.

Teacher to School Rabbi: We have a coverage problem in fourth grade; can you come and lead tefillot [prayers]?

Rabbi: I'm on my way to lead tefillot for the middle school. You can't rob Peter to pay Paul.

Last night was curriculum night for K-2 at JCDS. My favorite question of the night from one of the other second-grade parents: Cut for length )

And that's why we have these curriculum nights --- so that these glitches can be addressed as a team by all the stakeholders in the class. Yay!

At dropoff this morning, it was Rav Yoel's day to stand by the front door of the school, drinking coffee from his travel mug and keeping an eye on the arriving kids. Tani and three of his classmates were so excited that they were running to school and didn't stop when they reached the crosswalk. And there was a car coming. Rav Yoel shouted; the car and kids both stopped; everyone was fine.

The kids crossed the driveway and he asked them to step to the side for a moment to talk with them. He set down his coffee cup, and using the Socratic method got them to realize that they hadn't come to a complete stop, looked both ways, and made eye contact with the driver before crossing. Then he picked up his coffee, wished them a great day, and they ran off to the classroom.

I started off amused at the idea that even the Rav of the school has to put in his share of the cold mornings. I left very impressed with the way he handled the situation. For this, too, is Torah. :-)
