9/11 Museum Trip for Seniors
by Rebecca Aduculesi
On September 20, the entire senior grade took buses to the 9/11 memorial museum at the World Trade Center city in Manhattan. The trip kept them out of classes between first and sixth period, but they had the opportunity to walk around the 9/11 museum and learn more about that tragic day. Kayla Forman ('19) stated, “The trip was both uplifting and meaningful, and I’m thankful to have had this experience.” After walking around inside the museum, the seniors were able to spend time outside by the 9/11 memorial pools that have the names of the victims inscribed on the perimeter of the two fountains.

The Frisch building has physically changed over the summer with new lockers added in the freshman hallway in order to accommodate the class of 2022. Additionally, every classroom has been equipped with a new board that connects to the teacher's laptop, allowing the teacher to write on the laptop and have the writing appear instantly on the board. This allows teachers to use the display without being tied to the front of the class.
Starting the Year off Sweet
by Seela Langer
Frisch kicked off its new school year on Wednesday, September 5, 2018. Students were greeted at the doors by faculty, music, balloons, and the Frisch cougar, the school’s mascot. Students were excited to reunite with friends and teachers and start a new year of friendship and learning. Between ninth and tenth period, Rabbi Ciner called for a grade-wide Mincha, “the macro-community of the yeshiva", as is the tradition for the first day. Following Mincha, the teachers stood on the main staircase and conducted the annual candy toss, throwing candy at the students below to create a sweet beginning of the year.
