Graduation Fun for Neytz HaChochma Students

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

End-of-the-year activities have been a happy, busy time for Neytz HaChochma students. The excitement began on the last week of school with a motorboat ride and cookout picnic on an island off the 79th Street causeway.

The next day, the older boys who had finished Florida virtual school classes and completed their textbooks took part in a cake party. SAT scores were back and the results were spectacular. Most students jumped one grade and some even two grades for the year. Yosef S. achieved the highest SAT scores and made his teachers very proud.

Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Goldenberg was so delighted that he took the boys fishing. They went to nearby Oleta State Park with their poles. For all their efforts, only one fish was caught. Then their lessons were put to practical use: the fish was released and thrown back into the water because the boys determined it was not kosher.

The grand finale for the week was graduation day. Maimon B. gave the commencement speech. He expressed his appreciation to the school, his teachers, and all the staff by elaborating on the theme from the Torah: “A person cannot bring his friend’s Thanksgiving offering.” He graduated from AACE middle school and was accepted into a prestigious yeshiva high school by passing a vigorous examination.

Other students received certificates of achievement for their accomplishments not only in academics but also in notable social skills.

The day after graduation was full of fun and activity. Rabbi Hirsh, head of counseling, took the whole school on a nature walk. Then the children’s Judaic teacher, Rabbi Bukspan, strategically commandeered water wars on the schoolyard. Rabbi Goldenberg presided over a hot dog barbeque. Another cake was brought in. This time it was a birthday cake for Rabbi Bukspan. The children celebrated with their rebbe.

A martial arts tournament was held on the final day of the school year. Students received their certificates plus the appropriate color belt they earned

Camp Neytz got under way on July 2. The students are anticipating a great summer.

Neytz HaChochma, a nonprofit Jewish/orthodox exceptional student education school (ESE), is located at 901 NE 167th Street. The school’s curriculum includes a gifted program. For further information call 305-945-7483 or e-mail: info@aace.org.

Neytz HaChochma’s Unique Summer Camp

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Children look forward to summer camp and Camp Neytz is a favorite with many who return year after year.

International food festivals each week, award-winning ceramic art creations, visits by a baby alligator, a giant toad and a talking parrot, and edible art creations each week are only part of the activities at Camp Neytz.

Kids all over North Miami Beach are envious of the camp’s monster water slide. Parents like knowing all meals and snacks are under strict kosher supervision. Field trips, sports and computer games are also part of the fun-filled summer at Camp Neytz.

The Neytz haChochma summer camp runs for six weeks, starting July 2. Camp Neytz is funded by The Children’s Trust, a dedicated source of revenue established by voter referendum to improve the lives of children and families in Miami-Dade County. There are 50 funded slots available on a first come, first served basis and they are filling fast. There is a minimal co-pay. Camp finishes on August 10th.

Neytz haChochma, a 12-year-old nonprofit Orthodox Jewish organization for Exceptional Student Education (ESE), operates a day school with a gifted cohort, an out-of-school program and the summer camp.

Applications are available for summer camp online at www.aaceschool.org, and may be submitted online or printed out and sent by mail.
