📣Heeryee, heeryee! Today's learning in both the lower girls class and the upper girls class was dedicated by Pesh Goldberg and Aden Robin in honor of their birthdays! And they're the first ones to have participated in the #abouttime campaign! (Can we call them trendsetters yet?) Wishing you both a light-filled year of blessings, learning, and revealed good!

What better way to celebrate Vav Tishrei than unity. Unlike most schools, we don't have a high school (yet 😉) and we've been feeling like we could use a little dose of "big sisters". We didn't just reach out to Bnos Chomesh because their uniforms happen to match ours, or because they don't have an elementary school of "little sisters". We reached out because we know that they believe in the same mission as we do-- to ignite the spark in every single child, however that child may need to be "lit". Thank you @bnoschomeshacademy girls for showing our girls such unbelievable leadership, courtesy and care. For being Lamplighters with us. (And a special thank you to @thealiyaloft for lending us the space to make this happen) #challahbake #vavtishrei #ignitethespark #lamplightersmoments
That glorious moment when you can take a step back and watch the classroom run itself. #lamplightersmoment #ignitethespark #lamplightersnachas #teachindependence #jewishmontessori #montessori @gavi_gold
Perks of volunteering to make the Vav Tishrei pins for the preschool children: you get to watch your child live on the camera! Thank you Nesha @crunchymom2ez!! #lamplightersmoment #vavtishrei #ignitethespark #visibleclassroom

How appropriate: it just so happens that the day we announce the (drumroll please) Staff Snack Stash (say that 10 times quickly, I dare you), this is the word of the day in the upper girls class :). I'll use it in a sentence: Staff members at Lamplighters are always ravenous for adult snacks. We can't look at another animal cracker or pretzel at the end of the day. But we are always ravenous! Think of the after school meetings, the days we didn't have a minute to eat breakfast, the special treat we crave on our breaks...That's where the staff snack stash comes in-- a secret stash of snacks that are adult approved, made up of various foods like baked goods, gummy bears, ice cream, cereal, breakfast bars, and high quality treats. My point is, contribute to the staff snack stash, and give us the fuel we need to educate your children and, you know, ignite the spark. Donate snacks today 🤗 #forrealthough #wehungry #sendtreatsourway #staffsnackstash #sss #feedteachers #savetheworld #onelightatatime
Day 2 of the #itsabouttime journey-- ⏮ rewind to our favorite moment of last year's Tishrei:
Here, we formally introduced tge use of personal tablets for student learning. Implementing technology in a classroom is not an easy fix- it should be introduced carefully; only to enhance learning, not to to distract. To strengthen the bond between student and teacher-- not to distance them. This program was designed with so much intention, with the goal (as always) to facilitate individualized learning. With the introduction of this program, students were able to learn a variety of subjects, from Chumash to math, at their own pace, with constant feedback from the teacher.
