Students in grades 5th through 8th are invited to “A Taste of BBYO Connect,” on Sunday, April 15, at 9:30 a.m., at FVJN.
All Jewish children in this age group are welcome to come for this program; you need not be an FVJS student. Please RSVP to: Rachely@fvjn.org.
Will FVJS/FVJN Start a BBYO Connect Group?
Do you have children in grades 5th – 8th? If yes, would they enjoy the chance to engage in more social activities with their FVJN friends, as well as meet other Jewish teens their age from the area (Elgin to Aurora)?
FVJS/FVJN is looking into starting our own chapter of BBYO Connect, specifically for this age group.
Were you in a Jewish youth group, back in the day? Wouldn’t you like that experience for your kids? **This group needs a parent or two for coordinators/advisors, in order to work. If you are interested, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
BBYO Connect is the BBYO experience made just for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students (as well as 5th graders, from January on), offering social and meaningful experiences that will serve as a gateway to continued involvement in Jewish life.
The purpose of this group is to provide middle school students with a positive experience in which they can get together with camp, school, and synagogue friends, as well as meet new friends.
