Hilltop Happenings – Week 4

It Was Hot in Hilltop

Hilltop had some incredible highlights this week! On Monday, we had our Geza/Elon parent visitation day, and on Wednesday, we welcomed our Anaf/Bayit parents. So many Hilltoppers participated in the Swim-a-thon, and we are so proud of them for working so hard and raising money to help families in need send their children to camp! This week’s curricular focus was “Jewish homes around the world,” so our Little Chefs got a “taste” of Indian cuisine by cooking with many new and interesting spices. Little Scientists learned all about the different planets in our solar system. In Gymnastics, the campers worked on accomplishing hand-stands! Usable Arts made photo-stains of trees on wooden blocks, and Arts and Crafts used 3-D finger paint to make incredibly life-like cupcakes! The Hilltop Theater club is practicing so hard for their upcoming show based on the Wizard of Oz. We are currently collecting donations of various props needed to enhance the show even more. Please click here  for more information. If this week wasn’t eventful enough, we had an absolutely spectacular Carnival Day with rides, face painting, fortune telling, sack races, and a rockin’ dance party hosted by RockIt Entertainment. By the end of the week, we were thankful to welcome Shabbat for some much-needed rest! Rabbi Marmon from Temple Sinai in Cinnaminson was our very special Shabbat guest. Next week is Israel week, and we can’t wait!

B’Shalom,
