Last week was jam-packed with field trips! On Tuesday, Grades 1 and 2 saw the play The Emperor's New Clothes at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre. Students were not only treated to the performance, but also enjoyed talking to the actors and actresses, some of whom were also in elementary school, after the play. Students learned about all of the hard work that goes into putting on a theatrical production.
On Tuesday, Grade 1 students headed off campus to the West LA Sanitation Yard. In conjunction with their study of recycling in the classroom, students saw the different types of garbage trucks and learned how to properly sort trash. They reflected on the importance of recycling and connected it to the Jewish value of bal tashchit, which means "do not destroy."
