INTRODUCTION

 

 

          This booklet is designed to encourage your input and participation in our program by sharing with you our goals, and the steps we plan to take to meet them.

 

          Our Hebrew School is part of Chabad of Pembroke Pines and thus utilizes some of the very positive points of the Chabad ideology in educating your child.  A fresh and positive approach and lots of enthusiasm is the hallmark of Chabad and will be prevalent in our school.

         

The Goals of our Program

·        To attain a strong feeling of identity with their heritage and to develop a sense of Love and Pride in being Jewish.

·        Gain knowledge and understanding of the Mitzvot, traditions and practices that Judaism stands for, study the morals, values and ethical behavior mandated by the Torah.

·        Master the skills of Hebrew reading and to gradually develop the ability to understand basic Hebrew words, emphasizing prayers so that the students will feel comfortable when attending services.

·        Identify with the Land of Israel as their own land and develop an interest in issues relating to Israel and its inhabitants.

·        Discover and explore the incredible history of the Jewish people and its relevance for all times.

·        Allow students to express their opinions and questions about G‑d, Torah and religion.

·        Attain a "Jewish" perspective on life and maintain Jewish feelings and involvement beyond the years at Hebrew School and ultimately perpetuate this onto future generations.

·        Participate in community service by volunteering to help seniors, special needs children and the needy, putting what they learn into action.

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

 

 

Communication

We strongly encourage close communication between the school staff and parents. We are deeply concerned about the progress of each individual student, and would be more than willing to spend time discussing your child's progress with you. Please don't hesitate to call Rabbi Mordechai at  (954) 667-SHUL (7485)  or Rabbippines@gmail.com should any issue or question arise.

 

Confidential Information

It is of great importance for the teacher to have any information, which can provide for the optimum learning situation. Information of a physical, social and psychological nature can aid a teacher in planning instruction for each child. Without this knowledge, teachers are handicapped and may be unable to provide the kind of support needed. Such information should be transmitted either in writing to, or by a private conference with, the teacher. Obviously, this information will be kept confidential.

 

Encouragement

We believe that Hebrew School should be a positive experience for your child. Our teachers use oral encouragement, small prizes and rewards, including the very popular Torah Dollars throughout the year. Constant encouragement is the greatest gift that you as a parent can give your child. Too much is never enough!

 

Behavioral Expectations

At Chabad of Pembroke Pines Hebrew School we strive to create an atmosphere that reflects our Jewish values. We trust our student body to understand that respect for teachers, respect for one other and respect for themselves, are essential for a successful learning environment.

We expect:

1. Every student to treat fellow students and staff members with courtesy.

2. Books and materials handed out will be handled with care and kept neatly organized.

3. Proper decorum to be maintained in the classroom.

 

Books & Supplies

Text books & all supplies are included in the Tuition fee and are provided by the Hebrew School. All textbooks are provided to your child by our school "on loan". This means that the books are made available to your child to use in class and take home throughout the school year, but must be returned by year's end.

 

Tzedakah

Tzedakah (charity) is a fundamental concept in Judaism. Our school attempts to develop a commitment among our students to share with others less fortunate than themselves by donating a few pennies a day to charity. Parents are asked to provide young children with a coin daily for Tzedakah. Older children should give Tzedakah from their allowance money.

 

Homework

Although no official homework will be given, students are encouraged to practice their reading at home. Parents should listen to their child's songs, stories and Hebrew reading, as this will reinforce your involvement in your child’s Jewish education.

 

Attendance

Regular attendance is crucial in accomplishing the goals of our educational program. There is direct correlation between attendance and achievement, interest and attitude. Furthermore, coming late and leaving early disrupts the entire class and disrupts your child's classroom routine. Your support of our attendance policy will be greatly appreciated.

 

Parent Responsibilities

Parents have the responsibility to:

·        Bring and pick up the children on time.

·        Contact their teacher or director regarding a classroom concern.

·        Be supportive and positive of Hebrew School programming.

·        Take an active part in the child's Jewish Education.

 

Hebrew School Responsibilities

You should expect the School to fulfill the following:

·        Provide a positive and warm environment for your child.

·        Give your child a viable knowledge of Hebrew, Jewish Holidays, History, Customs and Traditions, Torah, Israel and Jewish Heroes and Heroines.

·        Keep you informed of your child's progress and class activities.

·        Provide your child with a knowledgeable teacher who is dedicated and concerned about your child's Jewish Education.

·        To provide your family with opportunities to learn experience and enjoy our Jewish Heritage.

 

Snacks

          Snacks will be provided for your children on Sundays. If students wish to bring their own snack to school only Kosher foods are permitted.

 

 

Illness:

Please notify us in case of a contagious disease so that we may notify the parents of other children in the class to be aware of the symptoms. Please let us also know if there are any changes in your child's health during the year e.g. vision, hearing etc. This will help us understand and cater to his/her needs.

 

First Aid

The teacher will see to minor injuries. Should something more serious occur, G‑d forbid, the parents will be contacted immediately. Should the parents be unavailable, the child will be taken to the nearest hospital.

 

Parent Absence

If, for any reason, parents will be away from home for any length of time, please advise the school. This is especially important if the absence is due to special conditions, such as hospitalization, which may be upsetting to the child. When teachers are aware of such conditions, they often can be of great help in alleviating the child's distress.

 

There are no refunds or credits for days missed due to illness, holidays or family vacations.
