Third Grade Intergenerational Melava Malka

On Motza'ei Shabbat November 18th our third grade students celebrated their annual Intergenerational Melave
Malka. With amazing musical accompaniment from Morah Tali Spector,YCQ’s music teacher, the students
proudly climbed the stage beautifully dressed in their shabbat clothing.They sang Hebrew and English songs
about Shabbat and Motza'ei Shabbat. Afterward, the students enjoyed watching an amazing slideshow.. A
beautiful collation was set up in the lunchroom where the students and families enjoyed music and a magic
show from Yoel Hecht. A wonderful time was had by all! Thank you to all the wonderful volenteers who helped
make it such a successful event!

Sunday Morning Learning

On Sunday November 19th the fifth through eighth grade students and there
parents had the pleasure of hearing from our JHS Rebbe, Rabbi Rosenfelt.
Were Avraham and Hagar a match made in heaven? Rabbi Rosenfelt devled
into the interesting topic of their marriage and HaShem’s masterful plan. The
parents and students then enjoyed either a basketball game or zumba!

YCQ Debate Team

On November 28, YCQ hosted HALB and North Shore Hebrew Academy for the first Middle School Yeshiva
League debate. The resolution we debated was: The U.S. government should penalize companies who outsource
a majority of its work. We are very proud that Aaron Sisser, a seventh grader, placed as Second Individual
Speaker and he and Michael Gersten placed as Second Place Team. This was a team effort and all the debaters
deserve recognition for their time and hard work. We are looking forward to our next meet in January. Thank you
to Mrs. Ben-Habib for preparing the team and all she does for them!

Mix-It Up Lunch!

This week we had the 5th annual Mix It Up lunch. As part of our Mix It Up Club, we plan events and work hard to put an end to
bullying both in school and on social media. The theme of our lunch this year was "Sweet". As the students arrived to the lunch room,
they were each given a different type of candy. Then, they sat at the table that had that candy on it. All of the JHS kids were split up in
order to get to know new kids and sit apart from their typical seats. We played fun ice breaker games and then watched a moving
video called The Bully. After being given a special dessert, we ended with signing a No Place For Hate pledge through the Anti
Defamation League. It was a wonderful experience and after reflecting in our ELA classes, everyone shared their own feelings about
the day. Thank you to all of the Mix it Up members for a very successful day! Thank you to Mrs. Maisel for all the work in making
the program such a success!

Sixth Grade Trip to the MET

The sixth grade visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see their ancient Egypt exhibits. Students
were given a tour by a licensed tour guide, and completed a scavenger hunt prepared by Mrs. Howitt.
They took many pictures and even sketched their own artwork. Thank you to all the chaperones and
special thanks to Mrs. Howitt for arranging such an important and fun trip!

Kindergarten trip to the Jewish Children’s Museum

The kindergarten went to the Jewish Children’s Museum where they not only enjoyed the exhibits, but
participated in an oil making workshop. The student learnt so much and had such a great time.

Second Grade Thanksgiving Parent Child Workshop!

YCQ celebrated Thanksgiving one day early at our annual 2nd Grade Thanksgiving Workshop. Each second grader invited
one guest to join them in the MPR for an afternnon of learning, crafts, and treats. Together with their guest the students
brainstormed and then wrote a piece about why their family is special. It was a unique opportunity for parents to see a writing
workshop in action. Each class performed a special Thanksgiving poem which they practiced with their teachers. Finally the
children visited a photobooth with their guest and had some special treats. The room was decorated with Thanksgiving
balloons and those in attendance enjoyed the learning and perfomances. Each child decorated a picture frame to take home
with them. This is a tradition we hope to continue year after year!

Fourth Grade Powwow

“Hakame!” (Welcome!) was the greeting offered to the fourth grade students as they arrived at YCQ’s annual Powwow
on November 23rd. Members of the Shinnecock Indian Nation, which is located on the East End of Long Island, had
arrived to model their regalia, perform traditional dances, and teach the boys and girls about their customs and
traditions. The students were awed by the beauty of the regalia that was worn by three Shinnecock dancers – one
garbed in a “jingle dress,” one in a traditional fringed deerskin blouse and skirt, and one wearing a beautifully-colored,
satin “ribbon dress,” designed to resemble a butterfly in flight. The students were enthralled by the dancers’
performances, and enjoyed participating in circle dances themselves. During the question and answer portion of the
program, the girls and boys were fascinated to learn that the Shinnecock are Algonquian people, and that their name
means, “People of the Stony Shore.” The Shinnecock have always been known for their powerful dugout canoes and for
the fine wampum beads that they produce. The afternoon concluded with a feast of traditional Native American food –
corn muffins, apple sauce, cranberry sauce, popcorn, and apple juice. It was an interesting, informative, and delicious
celebration!

dedication and commitment they show our children everyday.

We ask that you send in your gift of $40 per child, with a cap of $120
per family of 3 children or more, to cover both Chanukah Gelt and Mishloach
Manot.

These funds are distributed to staff at YCQ, including: principals,

An email was sent out a few weeks ago introducing the class parents
from each class. Please send the cash/check to school with your child, in an
envelope addressed to the YCQ PTO, to be handed in to the child of the class
parents of your class. Please clearly write your child's name and class on the
