Great Fruit Debate


In honor of Tu B’Svhat, the 6th graders presented the annual “Great Fruit Debate.” Through speech, art and song/dance, each team showed creativity, profundity and talent in trying to persuade our judges to select that team’s fruit as a new 8th fruit to celebrate on Tu B’Shvat. As 5th graders in the audience cheered them on, 6th grade teams showed tremendous spirit and understanding of the power of a symbol, as they promoted the fruits they selected: strawberry, starfruit and blackberry. All of our teams presented fabulously, and congratulations to Team Starfruit for winning this year’s debate!
