My Rocket

In science class we made rockets that we launched. We used a rocket launcher and they flew very far. It was cool to watch the rockets soar threw the sky. I even made a video showing my rocket.

During the making of the rocket I learned that if you make the tip of the rocket a little more heavy it will glide farther. I also learned that the pressure cap is very important. The pressure cap is the thing the air hits and then it shoots off the launcher.

I think mine could have been better if there was less tape around it. Making the rocket was so fun and I hope we can do more things like it.

My Dream School

If I made a school the desks would have bicycles connected to them and you can bike. There would also be trampoline desks that you can jump on and do your work. Each student would have fancy laptops and would get gym everyday and two recesses. We would learn algebra everyday during math class and we would make 3D model projects like making a rainforest or a jungle. We would have a Makerspace that has every single thing we need. Each day for lunch we would be served kosher steak and salad. We would have every Harry Potter book in class and we would have an hour of reading a day. The day would end at 1.30 and for the rest of the day there would be activities like hockey, soccer, piano, and guitar. The teachers at the school would be robots who can automatically grade papers and they would help you with whatever you need (except on tests). With all that fun you still need some rules so here they are:

  1. You have to use your indoor voices
  2. You can only eat when it’s time to eat.
  3. You need to be kind to other students and grades.
  4. You need to wear a Kippah and do prayers each day.


As you can see, that’s my dream school.

Mon Vacance

Mon Vacance

En février 2020 je suis allé au The Grand At The Moon Palace au Cancun, Mexique. Je suis allé avec mon Frère, Soeur, Papa, Mère, Grand parents, Oncles, Tantes et mon cousins.  Le resort est un All inclusive. Premièrement, nous avons obtenu une crème glacée Oreo. Deuxièmement, nous sommes allés dans nos chambres. Nous sommes allés au parc aquatique. Le resort a été superbe. Le resort a eu 9 piscines. La resort a eu un flowrider. Le flowrider a été très amusant. Il y a eu un bar dans la piscine. Ma boisson préférée a été le daiquiri fraise. Je ne suis pas allé à la plage. La nourriture au Grand est très très très délicieuse. Le grand a eu beaucoup de restaurants. Le grand a eu une boulangerie. Je recommande que tu vas au Grand.

Middle School Retreat

So… we start the retreat on Monday with some bagels and orange juice. Then we start to play games like Hokie Pokie. Not the dance Hokie Pokie, the game Hokie Pokie is when some people love to interact and some don’t. Then we took a bus ride to Marked and we did an obstacle course for the rest of the day.  The second day begins and the whole class but me go’s rafting. I don’t go because I currently have a cast on my foot and it can’t get wet. I hope they had fun but I can’t give a description of this day because I didn’t go. The third day started at school but we immediately went to the gym. We learned about made up planets with different crises and you had many solutions and you had to trade the solutions you didn’t need for ones you did need. Then we watched a review on the retreat and we went home as middle school students.

“ואהבת לרעך כמוך”-פרשת קדושים‎‎

ואהבת לרעך כמוך Literally means to treat your neighbours like you treat yourself.  But it’s more than that. It’s being nice to anyone who needs help or assistance. Even if you do something small like smile at someone it can make their day. ואהבת לרעך כמוך Means to me that kindness is one of the most important things in life and sharing can make peoples day. One of my experiences with ואהבת לרעך כמוך is when I miss my grandparents I always call them and they make me feel better.

Innovation Day

Innovation Day

Research shows that we are producing 50 billion tonnes of CO 2 per year so if we are to save the world then we really have to help. In our project we made a park using solar electricity and hydro electricity. We set out on our quest to find ECO friendly energy sources. Throughout the quest we found out that hydro power was first used to grind grain into flour and that John Herschel invented the solar oven. Solar panels can use three types of sunlight: ultraviolet, infra red, and the spectrum that we humans are used to seeing. UV light powers solar panels, In the equator the sun provides 1000 watts per square meter, and that solar energy comes from the sun. Did you know that Albert Einstein came up with solar panels? Even the international space station uses solar panels. These are just a few examples of the amazing research we did on our quest for eco friendly energy. 


The pandemic has affected us in many ways. We learned how to distance ourselves, we learned how to restrain ourselves and we learned that the world is not full of rainbows. With good comes bad, we can’t see family and friends and it has affected many people’s mental health. What has also been hardest for families with little children is that they have to stay at home for long periods of time, and that they can’t see all their friends they get to regularly see in school. I worry that some families can’t afford someone to take care of their kids while they are working. But even though this is hard when this is over we will appreciate our friends more. We wanted to do something to help immediately though, so that’s why we decided to make this park. It has all sorts of electrical generators and we added all these cool features in our park so that parents can take some breaks and so kids can see their friends (from far) and they can start having more fun. The greatest thing is that it will use ECO friendly electricity using solar panels and water wheels. Over the winter all the energy will be stored in batteries to heat and light up the area. So people don’t freeze.


We came up with some crazy ideas. We didn’t do all of them but we would like to share them with you:


The roofs of the playground can have solar panels with glass under so you can see the panels. We can make a human sized hamster wheel and it can generate electricity. There can be heating shelters that can help people if they are freezing. There can be slides that have a summertime switch and a colder switch, the cold switch is just a regular slide and the summer switch is a water slide. Don’t worry the water goes into a chamber and it gets reused and filtered. We will have a river around the park with a water wheel that powers a hydro generator which creates electricity.There can be special monkey bars that sprout water during the summer. We can add a jungle gym shaped like a submarine and it can have solar panels on top.There will be a crazy water slide that the floor drops beneath your feet and you go through a dinosaur’s body and there will be many mini scary dinosaurs in it. The slide is also see through. The person who introduces you to the park and gives you a tour is a robot. The slide has solar panels on it. There is a pool with solar heating.

Aren’t those some crazy ideas, I sure think so. That’s why our park turned out so good.



For our power sources we used hydro power and solar power. We really liked solar energy because it is pretty permanent and solar panels can stay on your house for a long time, and they produce eco friendly energy(if there’s light).We did hydroelectricity because you can get energy from the river any day any weather. Even if there is a rain storm because the river will flow faster and it will make more energy. So with these two together we can get energy 24 hours in a day and 7 days of a week. So that’s why we chose two.


We made a video of our park that we would like to share with you.

One of my favourite quotes is by Albert Einstein who said: ”STRIVE NOT TO BE A SUCCESS, BUT RATHER TO BE OF VALUE”. Isn’t that inspirational!! I think that quote means try your best not to be special but to be important in peoples lives and impact them with greatness. I find that quote is like Michelle Obama’s quote that says: “SUCCESS ISN’T ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY YOU MAKE ITS ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE YOU MAKE IN PEOPLES LIVES”. Arn’t they simular. I find that everybody should run by those quotes because everybody is important. Stop thinking money and fame and success will get you anywhere its if you know in your heart that you’re special.

Another one of my favourite quotes is by the Dalai Lama. ”BE KIND WHENEVER POSSIBLE. IT IS ALWAYS POSSIBLE”. I love this quote because it tells you be kind, not to show off or to seem nice but do it to encourage and inspire. I think he also means theres no limit to being nice. It’s a bit like one of our schools north stars that says: “THERE IS A FLOOR HERE BUT NO CEILING”. This quote makes me want to get up and start doing good deeds this second. If you start do a good deed don’t tell me because it does not matter it only matters to the person you did the deed too.
