PALS Preschool Program

PALS (Preschoolers and Little Siblings) is a free, family-friendly series of programs designed and hosted by the Solomon Schechter Day School. At every PALS event, preschoolers enjoy entertainment and projects that are designed to be engaging, educational and interactive. Hands-on activities that teach Jewish values are woven into every PALS. PALS programs take place at 60 Stein Circle, Newton. For more information, email Stephanie Maroun.

2016-2017 PALS Events

Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.: Green Thumb: The Science of Tu B'Shevat and Trees
Leave it to us to branch out! We’re going out on a limb and learning about trees and plants. We’ll dig down to the roots of Tu B’Shevat and unearth the meaning of the holiday. Get your hands dirty designing a mini terrarium you can take home.

Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.: Kings, Queens and Clowns: A Purim Party with Davey the Clown
There is plenty of glee and even more guffaws when Davey the Clown comes to town. Davey pulls out his rubber chicken, unicycle and all the stops for a knee-slapping, chuckle-filled Purim party. Fill yourself with hamentaschen while you fill mishloach manot to give to friends. Don’t forget to come in costume…no kidding!

Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.: Deep Sea Dive: A Passover Exploration of the Red Sea and Marine Animals
The parting of the Red Sea led the Israelites to safety and leads us to an afternoon of studying sea animals and marine mammals. We’ll dive into aquatic activities and Passover projects! Learn about the ancient story of Passover and the modern-day job of keeping the ocean clean and taking care of everything from a pet fish to a whale.

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.: Blue & White Bash: A Celebration of Yom HaAtzma'ut
Break out your best blue and white for festivities, fun and food in honor of Israel Independence Day. Party like it’s 1948, and show your love of Israel!

"My initial phone call with Schechter's admission office put me at ease. The warmth and openness of the admission officers made us feel so welcome and they made it a point to get to know my child and what we were looking for so that they could be most helpful." - Schechter parent
