While the ‘Rock Your School’ event recently hosted by The Epstein School may have been a surprise to Epstein students, the teachers and staff had been preparing for the event for quite some time.
“Our celebration on Feb. 21 was the perfect merger of Rosh Chodesh Adar and Rock Your School,” said Head of School David Abusch-Magder, PhD (Dr. D). “The month of Adar is meant to be joyous and filled with excitement and happiness,” he explained. “Rock Your School is an opportunity for teachers to stretch their creativity beyond the norm, engage their students in out-of-the-box learning, and of course, to have fun! Merging these two days was the perfect welcome back after an extended weekend for our students.
“From our Early Childhood classrooms through eighth grade, our teachers were thoughtful, imaginative, and reinforced why they are so exceptional at mentoring, guiding, and nurturing our students. It is so heartening to walk down the halls, hearing roaring laughter and squeals, and knowing that the lessons and skills being taught at that very moment are forever engrained in the students’ minds. Get Your Teach On has created something very special with Rock Your School, reminding students how fun learning is! We’re very proud to be part of this nation-wide school program.”
