It was an exciting last week of school at PJA. Between the final academic lessons and the cleaning out of desks, the week was also jam-packed with special activities from the Middle School “Beach Party” to the Kindergarten “Graduation.”
Portland Jewish Academy students receive a well-rounded education, which helps them develop into children with character who become tomorrow’s leaders. Our rigorous academic programs foster a love of learning by focusing on both critical thinking and creativity. Each subject, lesson, experiment and field trip is treated as one part of an equation that creates a child who is curious about the world and brave enough to explore it.
Spotlights on Programs at PJA
While every day at PJA we aim to "think for ourselves and work for the world," we shine a special light on the meaning of those familiar words when our middle school community, as well as family and friends, gather to hear our 8th graders deliver their Capstone drashot
PJA’s fourth grade class recently completed their study unit on the Lewis and Clark journey. Students work in groups as they “travel” along the path of Captains Lewis and Clark, Sacagawea, and the rest of the Corps of Discovery.
PJA students had a very special celebration for Shavuot today. Although we may not be able to gather as one school together, we are always finding meaningful and fun ways to bring the Jewish life of our school to life.
