Important Update: 

This week is the NY State ELA Test!! It is very important to get plenty of rest, be on time to school, and eat breakfast! We are proud of everything the students have done so far and they are ready to show what they know!

ELA State Test: March 30-April 1
Math State Test: May 2-4

With the new technology and dedicated space for use, Hebrew Public is pleased to announce that we will be shifting to computer based testing for the NYS exams for Grades 3-7. The students already have great familiarity with computer based testing and are receiving additional training and information with both time in the tech lab and in their classrooms. We will also be sharing additional resources for use at home. 


VIP Student:

Each day, we choose a new VIP student. The VIP is someone who displays positive and supportive behavior, completes all of their homework and classwork, and was an overall great student! The VIP for the day gets special use of VIP materials and a special seat for the day!
