Physics classes had an exciting and educational field trip to iFLY, an indoor skydiving center in Fort Lauderdale. This company, which has expanded to 37 locations across the globe, aims to provide an authentic skydiving experience in a safe environment.

Covering topics which Mr. Luis Felipe’s students have been learning all year, the certified flight instructors first gave students a presentation about the “physics” behind the simulated indoor skydiving, focusing on the concepts of velocity and drag force to exemplify the power of the strong winds which propel the body up into the air. After the introductory instruction, students completed an activity which calculated their own personal velocity which needs to be reached so that the winds could carry them into the air. After, the students had the opportunity to enter the flight chamber and feel the rush of simulated skydiving for themselves. The flyers soared in the blasting air, reaching an incredible height and flipping and spinning with the help of their instructor. They did so after receiving preparatory training to ensure that flyers communicate properly with their instructor during their flight.

The students had an unforgettable experience that truly brought to life the ideas and equations which they had been studying in Physics class.

Nearly 1,400 community friends gathered to celebrate the graduation of Scheck Hillel’s Ben Lipson Upper School Class of 2017. The Class of 2017 is filled with bright and talented students accepted to amazing programs, universities, yeshivot and gap year programs across the country and Israel, including Bar Ilan University, Cornell, Emory, Georgia Tech, University of Florida, IDC Herzliya, University of Michigan, New York University, Tufts and more.

Commencement festivities began May 11 at the Senior Awards Ceremony, where proud family members and friends looked on as students received awards and honor society tassels. May 15's Senior Dinner provided an opportunity for families to celebrate the graduates together.

On Tuesday, May 16, the Diener Athletic Center was packed with community members, faculty, staff, friends and families for the Class of 2017 Commencement. The graduates received a personalized Yeverechicha blessing from Head of School Dr. Rabbi Ezra Levy, and took in remarks from Carlos Berner, Chair of the Board of Governors, Associate Head of School Vanessa Donaher, and Yossi Yativ, a Scheck Hillel Hebrew and Israel Education teacher who has been inspiring Scheck Hillel students for more than 30 years. Students were represented by Valedictorian Jordana Zackon, Salutatorian Danielle Scheck and High School President David Oliel. Once the graduates received their diplomas, the newest generation of alumni proudly moved their tassels and tossed their graduation caps in the air.

Scheck Hillel is proud to give a mazal tov to the Class of 2017 and their families. We can’t wait for you to come back to visit us at home.
