At the virtual PJA Rosh Hashana celebration last week, our 8th grade students shared their blessings for our community. These beautiful blessings show us what is in the hearts and minds of our students at this particular moment in time.
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
Last Friday, Middle School students and staff were invited to participate in an optional after school activity of shaping challah together over Zoom. The idea came from two 7th grade students reminiscing about the summer cooking class.
This week all of our K-8th grade students received a “kit” of carefully selected supplies and materials that they will use to enhance PJA’s distance learning program. Thank you to all of the teachers who compiled these materials.
On July 6th, the quiet hallways of Portland Jewish Academy were once again filled with voices and laughter; as a group of children ages one through four returned to school for PJA’s Early Childhood summer program.
