Reading and Growing

Reading is such an important value and skill to have.  When you read, you are able to learn about challenging concepts, can visit far away places, learn about new people, and much more.  In both our Judaic and General Studies classes, students are working in large groups, partners, and individually to grow in their reading skills.  Students have discussions with each other and with teachers about what they have read, in order to grow and learn together.
