Dear MS Families,    


Thank you for joining us at Parent-Teacher Conferences on Tuesday and Wednesday! It was great to meet you and discuss your children. We value communication with parents very highly.

Please read on for the latest Middle School news and information on upcoming events.  


I would also like to share with you this D'var Torah from Rabbi Mordechai Soskil, Middle/Upper School Judaic Studies principal.

Brookline Police Department's self-defense for women course. 


Science Fair
The students are hard at work on their science fair projects, and ideas, paper, and experiments (along with occasional puffs of steam) are thick in the air.  They're excited to share their projects with you this coming Tuesday, March 24, at 5:30 p.m.!

Please remember that the Middle School students will be staying at school on Tuesday until the science fair begins.

Spotlight on Navi

Rabbi Saadia's eighth-grade Navi students got to channel their inner architects as they designed and built models of the third Beit HaMikdash, as it would look if they were in charge.

They put their hearts and souls into the work, and the outcome was astonishing! Please take a look at a few other samples on our Phanfare website.

Seventh Grade World Languages Assembly
It's that time of year again! The Maimonides seventh-grade students are now considering their world language options for 2015-16.  The students will watch a presentation on the two available languages, Spanish and Arabic, during lunch a week from Tuesday, March 31. Please see this letter from Mr. Ryan, department head, for an explanation of how the process works.

After-School Program

The M.S.A.P. (Maimonides School Activities Program) after-school program's spring term brochure was sent home in your child's backpack. It is also on-line. Early Bird Registration (with a discounted registration fee) closes on Monday, March 23rd. Regular registration closes March 30th.

We have wonderful programs, old and new! Inquiries? Want to register your child? Email Deborah Mehl,
Taam China Mondays


The popular eighth-grade-run Chinese lunch program continues on March 23! The eighth graders are looking forward to serving lunches to the students who have ordered food from them.   




On behalf of the entire Middle School: Shabbat Shalom!
