Adar Lives On

This year Purim was just a prelude to the real Adar excitement here at the MHA.  Picking up where the the 3rd graders left off with their incredible Purim play on Friday (click here for more pictures!), the Kollel and Bat Ami had an exciting Purim Carnival waiting for all of the elementary school students when they returned on Monday, Shushan Purim.

The carnival was followed by a video which the shlichim prepared and which the Junior High was invited to attend.  Ask a 7th or 8th grader and they'll tell you that was a dead giveaway.  Inviting the Junior High to a Lower School assembly could only mean one thing: COLOR WAR!

And so it was.  Starting Monday afternoon the school was a sea of blue and red as the students competed in what was widely regarded to have been the best - and most IKaRR filled - Color War our school has ever seen.  From athletics to the all-new Cardboard Challenge, and from songs and cheers to skits and banners, these two spirit-filled days gave every child a chance to shine.

Have a look at the videos to get a glimpse of what it was like and be sure to let Mrs. Gersten know what an incredible job she did putting it all together!
