This week Student Life and the Gilinksi Hillel Ambassadors hosted Distracted Driving Awareness Week. The primary goal of this week was to educate our students on the risks and dangers of texting while driving and of distracted driving.  

Every morning, Grade 9-12 students were shown a short video about texting while driving to heighten their awareness of the consequences of this dangerous activity.  On Wednesday, February 25, and Thursday, February 26, every Ben Lipson Upper School student had the chance to enter the Arrive Alive simulator. While driving a real car, the students were asked to text while driving to see how easy it is to crash a car when distracted.  

On Thursday afternoon, Student Life held an assembly with Detective Judy Chochon from Miami-Dade Police Teen Education Unit.  In addition to sharing some frightening texting while driving cases she has witnessed in her 12 years on the force, she also discussed the Florida statues and laws regarding texting while driving and the severity of its consequences.  As drivers,  students operate lethal weapons every day, and have the potential to cause irreparable damages to themselves and others.  It is our hope that this assembly and week of programming will remind them to think twice before texting while driving.

This past weekend, Grade 10 had an amazing in-school Shabbaton! They started the Shabbaton off by going ice skating on Friday morning after a special breakfast. Once back at school, the students prepared for a meaningful Shabbat. The theme was boys versus girls, and throughout the Shabbaton, teachers, students and madrichim (counselors) were able to express their feelings on feminism and how men and women are treated in society. Many of the activities corresponded to the theme, as well. Grade 10 was given the opportunity to bond as a class and to truly get to know each other through singing and dancing spiritually during Shabbat and Tefilla. Students discussed the D’var Torah, ate great food and continuePublishd to celebrate with song and dance. After Shabbat ended, everyone participated in Havdallah, which then led to a bonfire! The students also got to know their teachers and madrichim much better after the wonderful experience. Until next year!
