A NOTE FROM OUR HEAD

Dear Tehiyah Families,

It has only been a month since we launched the Bridge to the Future initiative, and already so much has started! I wanted to use this opportunity to update on some of the latest happenings around campus:

  • All of our teachers are taking a professional development workshop on Differentiation over the course of the spring, led by Tehiyah alum and founder of Rosh Pinah, Elana Naftalin Kelman.
  • Nati Porat and Tamar Senyak participated in a Responsive Classroom Training last week and are excited to start to integrate this practice into the classrooms.
  • Kenton has begun teaching a very popular Robot Club to the 4th and 5th graders after school.
  • Bridge K and Kindergarten spent the day last Friday at Alvarado and 
  • Tassajara Parks respectively, enjoying an outdoor educational experience around Tu B'shevat.
  • Six teachers have started a weekly in-service on Inquiry-Based Learning, taught be local expert, Yafit Megidash.
  • 1st and 2nd grade science teacher, Onna Schwindt, has turned her classroom into a JSTEAM center, filled with hands-on science activities. 
  • Our Student Council has been trained by the ADL in an Anti-Bullying program and will be working with all the student body in their own classes to create a "no place for hate" environment.

Shabbat Shalom,

Deb

Our Core Values

Kehillahקהילה

Community

Tehiyah promotes a strong sense of קהילה (kehillah)- community and רוח (ruach) - spirit. Together we build a school that is nurturing, inclusive, and diverse – where each individual is able to express their best and most authentic self. We prepare our students to make the world around them a more compassionate, just, and peaceful place (תיקון עולם)- Tikkun Olam).

Respect and Acceptance

At Tehiyah we instill a culture of integrity based on the principles of דרך ארץ(derekh eretz) -thoughtful conduct, חסד (chesed) -kindness, and רחמנות (rachmanut)- compassion. We raise mensches.

People of the Book

At Tehiyah, we foster each child’s innate curiosity and creativity while cultivating critical thinking and compassion. As People of the Book, we place the written word, inquiry, and in-depth study at the center of Jewish values.
