Chaverim Students Join Together for Evan’s Team

Categories: Inclusion, Religious School
 

We are excited to share news of a wonderful opportunity for our Chaverim students.  You may have heard of our “Steam Team.”  We started this group 4 years ago for Martin, one of our 6th grade students (at that time).  The Steam Team provided incredible opportunities for both Martin and his classmates.  The group met periodically throughout the years to support Martin with his Bar Mitzvah studies, as well as socialize with one another through art and cooking activities.  The benefits this group provided to its participants have been immeasurable.  The Steam Team was so incredibly successful that we have since started a second squad that is in its second year and going strong!

Building on the success of these two groups, members of the Chaverim class have now started “Evan’s Team.”  Evan is such an important member of our class, and we are so excited to support him as he prepares for his big day!   Led by Rabbi Amy, Nancy Langer (Martin’s mom), and a sports staff team member, Evan’s Team is a fun program designed around socializing and preparing Evan for his Bar Mitzvah, while doing things Evan loves, such as sports and drawing. This group will meet approximately 3 times during this coming year, ultimately leading up to Evan’s Bar Mitzvah in June of 2019.

Evan’s Team met for the first time this week, and everyone had a great time!
