School Project

Project Give Back, a unique program for students in grades 4 and 5, has left an indelible mark on the students who participated in it, their teachers say. Ellen Schwartz, a Grade 4 teacher at Eitz Chaim Day School, developed the project in her general studies class. The goal was to teach children empathy, compassion, philanthropy and communal responsibility, all of which require the efforts of both the home and the school. It has received rave reports from educators and charitable organizations.
