Hillel on Zoom

Along with thousands of schools worldwide, Scheck Hillel has taken the proper precautions and moved all learning to an online environment. In an attempt to stop the spread of the Coronavirus and make sure all students are able to remain in quarantine, all classes are held on zoom.

 

On zoom, an entire class can see each other, the teacher, and even share their screen. With this program, students are able to have the most functional learning environment possible. 

 

Different grades require different learning environments, which is why a few grades have longer or shorter hours than others. The new schedule goes as the following:

 

Pk3:

Class from 8:30 – 4:00 PM

  • 8:30 – 2:30 PM

Moreover, you can look at ehillel.org for anything you may be worried or confused about. For example, how will I take AP exams? How will second-semester grades affect college admissions? There are many more questions and answers, so check it out.

 

To add to that, in order to keep the sense of community at Scheck Hillel, faculty has hosted a number of activities via Zoom. For instance, Ms. Best hosts yoga for girls, Coach Morgan teaches a fitness class, Rabbi Boyd teaches Arabic writing and calligraphy, and Mr. Johnson hosts bagel break to socialize and talk with his students. 

 

Overall, while this virus is making this time very difficult, Scheck Hillel has continued to maintain its academic superiority and keep our community in touch with Judaism. With the help of Zoom, Hillel remains functioning and continues to help its students.
