As part of an ongoing re-branding effort at the Milwaukee Jewish Day School, videos are released on a regular basis to highlight some of the dynamic programs and activities. These video shorts are designed to give a bright and visually pleasing snapshot, no longer than two minutes, for current and prospective families. A clean indroduction and conclusion featuring the new logo act as bookends for each video. They are published on social media mostly, as well as on the school's website. Some of the topics have included: field trips to local public and art museums, a history cooking lesson as well as the six-week study program called the "Folk Fair". Read Less

The seventh grade class built their own Sukkah from scratch as part of a project-based learning initiative at MJDS. They used saws, drills and their own planning to construct it, but it wasn't always a smooth journey. Watch them as they work together to make this large project come to life.
Seventh graders at MJDS learned about DNA in a lab recently when they extracted the DNA of a strawberry and looked at it under a microscope
The Folk Fair is a six-week study program where each grade focuses on the arts, literature, history and culture of a particular country. Near the end, the lower school kicks off the Folk Fair with a mock plane ride to travel 'around the world'. Then in the following days, students, parents and relatives are invited to visit the classrooms to view the presentations. 
The eight graders finished up their unit learning about life in the shtetl by preparing some deserts and dishes from that time period.
Third, fourth and fifth graders toured the Milwaukee Art Museum where they were able to explore many of the exhibits.
