    We look forward to continuing our partnership with Asif, learning Hebrew and spending time with the new Shinshinim!



    We partnered with Mr. Adam Shine's English class this year. We completed many fun projects using Google Slides. We exchange handwritten letters that our Shinshinim delivered for us.


     We learned a lot of Hebrew with our amazing teacher, Morah Tizppy! She is pictured below in the beautiful apron the class made her to say thank you!




    Here we are with our Shinshinim for the year. Shinshinim are Israeli high school graduates who postpone there military service to spend a year abroad teaching other about their country.



    Covid didn't stop us! 

    Here are the covers of two of the projects we did. The first one was a "get to know you" slide set. The second one was our Kindness Challenge. Each student created a slide showing and telling about what he/she did to be kind.

    We also Zoomed together twice during the year.

    Even though we were learning in the gym, six feet apart, we still learned Hebrew with Morazh Tzippy. She "Zoomed in" once a week!

    We did many project online. We wrote letters back and forth, sending pictures and small gifts. We created a book with our handprints (white is Thornell, pink is Asif) to show that we are two schools with one heart.


    This year we have done two projects as of 28 March 2019. 

    Our first project was on Google Slides.  Each set of partners took half a slide to list facts about him/herself.  We found out we are all a lot alike!


    Our second project was also in Google Slides.  Both classes read the book, Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day. We then wrote ways to have a better day!

    When Mrs. Aragamon returned to Israel she delivered our letters and gifts. Mr. Shine sent us these pictures.  There is a video, too, which I will try to upload soon! As you can see, our friends at Asif were VERY excited!
