VETERANS DAY 2016
Barkai honors all American veterans who served for our country. We were honored to hear from Mr. Joe Zalta, father of Barkai grandparent Patty Shrem, who served for 3 years in World War II as an army tank driver. The Middle School students and staff were fascinated by his story and grateful he shared it with us.
ELECTION DAY 2016
Barkai's 8th grade students performed in a debate for the Middle School students covering the issues of gun control, health care, Israel and immigration. Throughout the day, all students in 1st through 8th grades, registered and voted for America's next president.
TAMIR GOODMAN VISITS BARKAI
Tamir Goodman, a former professional basketball player known as the "Jewish Jordan" spoke to Barkai's Middle School students about the challenges he faced being a professional Jewish basketball player and how you must remain true to who you are. He then organized basketball drills for the 8th grade girls and boys. Thank you to Barkai parents Frieda and Judah Cattan for organizing the program and Rachel and Ricky Novick and the Barkai PTA for sponsoring it.
1ST GRADERS RECEIVE SISIT
