  • Carmel Academy Students Become Forensic Investigators In Elective Science Class

    It was a serene autumn day at Carmel Academy when a group of the school's seventh and eighth graders were summoned to the science lab to deal with an "urgent" matter. The students, all part of a forensic science elective class, rushed excitedly to the courtyard where they were met with an unexpected scenario -- a mock crime scene, where poor Fred had met with an unfortunate demise. The students immediately went to work as detectives, making observations, searching for clues, discussing their theories and comparing notes. The mysterious whodunit was a way for Carmel science teacher Kelly Mulligan to introduce her students to the important work, skills and techniques used by forensic scientists.

  • Carmel Academy Students Connect With Ancient Jewish Traditions

    Carmel Academy students got their hands dirty and their toes wet as they experienced the rituals surrounding the Hebrew month of Tishrei.
     
    In the days leading up to Rosh Hashanah, Carmel Academy’s sixth grade students spent the afternoon with Rabbi Schneur Wilhelm, who teaches about the crafts of Judaism. Rabbi Wilhelm, who is the Rabbi at the Chabad of Milford, led the sixth graders in a hands-on shofar workshop, as each student cleaned, sawed, sanded and created their very own shofar.

    “The Rosh Hashanah Amida is made up of three parts: Shofarot, Zichronot (remembrance), and Malkhuyot (kingship). At Carmel, each Middle School grade studies one of the sections and each has a corresponding experiential activity to help them grasp the meaning and relevancy of the ancient liturgy,” said Rabbi Jordan Soffer, Carmel Academy’s Rabbi-in-Residence.

    “Our sixth graders learned about the powerful sound of the shofar, the blast for ultimate redemption, and then built their own shofarot,” he said.
     
    “Our goal is to re-mystify the rituals by demystifying the rituals,” he said. “We hope to create a sense of awe and wonder that emerges from a familiarity. By making the shofar with their own two hands, our students gained a deep appreciation about how remarkable a shofar is, and, at the same time, how accessible it is,” Rabbi Soffer said.
