The Temima activities and character development program is part of the overall mission of helping each girl to develop fully. Most of the activities are mandatory, and are designed to fit in with the curriculum.
Character Development Program
The SIP (self-improvement plan) program helps girls to know themselves and create daily process goals to promote growth in Midos.
“Chesed In Training”
As part of the training to become a ‘baalas chesed’, students are carefully guided through skills such as cooking for families of the sick, visiting ill children, and visiting nursing homes. By engaging in small segments of chesed activities under adult supervision, students feel prepared for a fuller scope of community chesed as they grow older.
Performance involving drama, dance, choir and student-made scenery and costumes encourages development of organizational skills, teamwork, and performing and visual arts talents.
Ongoing, yearlong program teaches students to judge each other favorably and engage in positive speech about others.
Shabbatonim & Retreats
Approximately three retreats featuring workshops, visual arts projects, and enjoyable activities all connected to themes developed by students and staff.
“Taryag Temima” is an optional, extra-curricular program in which students learn the six-hundred and thirteen commandments of the Torah over three years. The program includes practice sessions for memorization, discussion, incentives, and exciting trips to celebrate completion of study units.
Student participation in conventions, hosting, and visiting other Jewish girls’ high schools around the country, which present programming on issues relevant to today’s young Jewish women.
