Sunday School (K-12)

Religious School happens on Sunday and is split into 1st session and 2nd session:

  • 1st session is from 9am to 11:30am
  • 2nd session is 11am to 1:30pm

Different grades attend during different sessions:

  • K-5th grade students can choose to register for either 1st or 2nd session.
  • K-2nd grade students registered in the afternoon will be in a one-room schoolhouse.
  • All 6th-12th grade students attend during 2nd session.

All 1st and 2nd session students are at Temple from 11am-11:30pm. During this time:

  • All Beit Noar (K-5) and B’yachad (6 & 7) students participate in Family T’filah in the Sanctuary. Families are encouraged to participate with them!
  • All Beit Tichon (8-12) students participate in a community-building session (that includes snacks!).

Our 1st and 2nd sessions are structured differently from one another:

  • 1st session is a primarily focused on time in grade-specific classrooms with teachers and madrichim (teenage teacher assistants) and a weekly music lesson.
  • 2nd session is divided into two courses: multi-age track and grade-specific core. After school-wide t’filah ends at 11:30, students in 2nd session spend the first hour (11:30am-12:30pm) in their grade-specific core class. Students spend the remaining hour (12:30pm to 1:30pm) in multi-grade track classes. Instead of a dedicated weekly music lesson, music is integrated into the curriculum throughout the school year.
    • All tracks are infused with Jewish learning and values, designed by a teacher, lay leader, or volunteer who is a professional in their field.
    • There are many diverse track options available to students. Projected tracks include: Drama, Cooking, Mitzvah Family Track, Art, Modern Hebrew, Israel, Jewish Teen Funders’ Network, Holocaust Studies, and Song Leading.
    • Projected tracks may change before the year begins based on teacher availability, supplies, and space.
    • We are still looking for qualified individuals to lead track courses! Qualified individuals include lay leaders and parents! Please let us know if you or someone you know would be a great addition to our track leadership team.

Temple Beth Shalom’s curriculum is spiraled, meaning students will see the same topics throughout their school career, with each encounter increasing in complexity and reinforcing previous learning. See how the topics spiral below:
