It was a great school year with much to look forward to next year.
LAPD officers visited the Boys Division today and spoke to the 11th and 12 grades about the dangers of driving under the influence. It was shocking and jarring to see the effects of driving under the influence. Thank you LAPD for sharing and taking the time to answer our questions.
The 11th and 12th grade boys had a chance to visit the Day to Day Imports warehouse and factory. They learned about logistics and the intricacies of running a 250,000 square foot warehouse and factory. It was an informative and educational trip, focused on business and viewing the world through the lens of religious businessmen that never waver from their values.
To commemorate Yom HaShoah, Mrs. Amelie Levin – a holocaust survivor – shared her story with the Girls Division.
Rabbi Stulberger declared war! Color war!
The Blue Team represented Torah and the Red Team represented Tefilah.
The Boys Division First Annual Color War started with a paint ball trip. There were sports competitions including a dunk contest and Tug-of-War. There was a Torah-Bowl, engineering & chemistry competitions, banner contest, cheers and a video contest.
The Blue team won by a hair. And after two days of fierce competition – the boys and rebbeim celebrated with Rabbi Samuels famous achdus Chulent.
Matan Imanoel, VTHS class of 2019, was awarded with the prestigious UCLA Freshman Regents Scholarship.
This year, 113,000 high school seniors applied for acceptance to UCLA. Only 100 of them were chosen to receive a UCLA Freshman Regents Scholarship. We are proud that Matan was chosen as one of the top 100 UCLA Freshmen.
When Matan’s father heard the good news, he immediately texted Rabbi Stulberger, “I would like to thank you for creating the perfect environment for Matan. An environment that enabled him to attain this achievement and to become a Ben Torah!”
The energy was high, and the achdus even higher as the school was busy with color war.
More than the competition that was going on – sports, races, cake wars, etc – you could feel the achdus in the school with each grade working hard together to help their succeed and cheering on the other teams. The competition was intense and each team’s performance and presentations were incredible – song, dance, banner, divrei torah – the girls took color war to a whole new level. Congratulations to Team Blue, Sophomores, for winning color war by ONE point!
