Further study at the 25 (1940-1944) and 35 (1944-Present) levels will continue chronologically through the events of the Holocaust, all the way to the creation of Israel.
This program seeks to make our community a better place through student leadership. Student council and leadership organize a number of events throughout the year to engage the student population with the school and the community at large. This group of students is responsible for creating, organizing and implementing events and activities to develop their leadership skills and enhance the high school experience. Students will explore principles of leadership and evaluate their personal characteristics and qualities. This course is during lunch once or twice a week all year. They will examine communication, public speaking and presentation skills and will lead and participate in meetings.
OUTDOOR EDUCATION 10
This course allows students to utilize the great outdoors as a classroom and gain skills for life by doing so. It is designed to inspire positive values; such as, a sense of responsibility and a purpose in life. Students will learn to challenge themselves both mentally, physically, socially and emotionally. We hope to build skills that will benefit them both in the classroom and the outdoors. Our aim is to help students grow as individuals and as responsible citizens.
