Open to students in 7th-12th grade, Madrichim, or Teacher Aides, are vital to our school program! Opportunities to help out include:
Classroom: Madrichim in the classrooms are vital to the program. These assistants work closely with our teachers to help students with Hebrew reading, to help teachers with classroom management, and to assist in the overall needs of the classroom. Classroom Madrichim may be assigned to grades Pre-K through 6th grade.
Office: The Madrichim in the office are some of the first faces students and parents see each session, so it’s important to be friendly and courteous. These Madrichim help make copies for classroom assignments and games, and make sure everyone is where they need to be during school hours. They may also act as substitutes if another madrich is absent.
Art: The Madrichim in art (omanut) help Morah Laura on Sundays with anything imaginable, such as getting supplies ready for art projects, putting up bulletin boards to beautiful our community, and helping students connect to Judaism through art.
Music: The Madrichim in music (shira) work closely with Cantor O’Brien each Sunday to lead the students in song, whether it’s singing a new Hanukkah song, modeling a silly dance to go along with a Passover tune, helping with Havdalah, or just bring positive energy to get the kids singing early in the morning.
Hours are Sundays from 9:45am-12:00pm and/or Tuesday afternoons from 4:15pm-5:45pm and Madrichim will receive volunteer hours or hourly based pay.*
*7th graders receive volunteer hours only. Pay is based on one’s experience as a madrich/madricha.
