January Newsletter 2022

Winter is here and we are all learning about the change in season. The 3’s and 4’s are learning about animals in winter, where animals live, and where we live. They will learn about hibernation, migration, and adaptation. They will also look at the architecture in our area and study different types of buildings and homes. The 2’s are focusing on shapes and Jewish Mitzvahs. They learned about lighting Shabbat candles, kissing a mezuzah, giving tzedakah and more. Each child created their very own mezuzah, a set of candle holders and a tzedakah box to take home.

As we enter a new year, we wanted to wish you all a very happy holiday and a happy new year from RTNS. We are so grateful for our families and staff who help us keep our children safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. We are looking forward to the second half of the school year.


We are currently giving tours for the 2022-23 school year. We are already filling up our 2’s program. If you know anyone who has a soon to be 2 year old who would like to take a tour of the school, they can contact Ali, the Nursery School Director at nsdirector.rtns@gmail.com.


We are also enrolling for summer camp 2022. We will have a program for children ages 2-5 years old. Camp will be 6 weeks long from June 27th to August 5th. To register you can visit our website at www.riverdaletemplens.org.
