Ms. Laffer’s “Sweet” Lesson for Rosh Hashana

Friday September 23rd 2022

This week Ms. Laffer read the book Thank You Mr. Falker by Patricia Polacco to class 3-212 and 3-211. The book is about the main character Trisha who grew up in a family who loved books! Trisha’s grandpa drizzled honey on the cover of a small book and had her taste it. The honey was sweet “and so is knowledge but knowledge is like the bee that made that sweet honey, you have to chase it through the pages of a book.” 

The important lesson is to never give up when something is difficult for us! In honor of Rosh Hashana, after reading Thank You Mr. Falker, Ms. Laffer gave the students apples and honey for a sweet new year! Miss Laffer and Morah Surah’s Class 3-211 also made yummy bee cupcakes including a fondant bee and bee hive in keeping with their classroom theme! Have a BEE-utiful Shabbat and shana tova umetuka!!
