YTCTE Distance Learning - Bringing us all closer together
Divisional Highlights
This week the Pre-K started their art unit! The children were so excited to create their first masterpieces using the oil pastels and watercolors that the morahs sent home. Click here to see the picture album!
This past Friday our Erev Shabbos assemblies were joined by Simcha Leiner! After a dvar torah from our Rosh HaYeshiva, Rabbi Mordechai Palgon, Simcha sang a few beautiful songs. Simcha also recalled his visit to Yeshiva a few months ago where he saw our amazing middos programs. He told the boys and girls how their hard work from home is so special and important and that they should keep up their great work! Watch the boys assembly and the girls assembly.

Distance Learning Tip
Make sure to follow the 20-20-20 Rule:

After every 20 minutes of looking at a screen, look away from the screen for 20 seconds and focus your eyes on something at least 20 feet away.
Teacher Appreciation
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, and to recognize the hard work of all our amazing teachers, our PTA created beautiful lawn signs and distributed them to the homes of all YTCTE teachers. They also offered each faculty member a pizza dinner for their family. In addition, many classes gave their Rabbeim and teachers collective gifts to show their thanks and some classes even organized drive-by parades in front of some Rabbeim and teachers' homes. The Rabbeim, moros and teachers all appreciated the kind gestures of appreciation as they continue to valiantly teach their students from a distance.
