Hillel Academy to offer community after-school enrichment program

Hillel Academy, under the supervision of Rabbi Moshe Shmaryahu, plans to offer after-school enrichment classes in three disciplines this spring. The classes, which are for children of the entire Jewish community, will be aimed at children from 6-15 years of age. The times have not yet been set, but the program is expected to begin in early May and conclude in mid-June. The sessions are expected to run about one hour, likely starting at 4 pm, and are expected to take place during the week. Classes offered would include art, music and technology. 

The music and art classes would be offered at $20 per child per session, for six sessions or a total of $120. The technology course would involve training and working with a 3-D printer. The cost is also expected to be $20 per student per session. However, the cost of materials may require a higher cost. A minimum of five-six students would be necessary to run each course. Specific material will be oriented according to the ages of the children. 

“Hillel Academy has remained open during the pandemic and has a good safety record during this period,” said organizers of the program. “Appropriate distancing will be maintained for those concerned. For parents wishing to have their children interact with others after a year of severe restrictions, this would be a good opportunity.”
