February 2024

Hadar and Laurie

Hadar Skolnik

Hadar is nine years old and in the third grade. She started taking lessons on her favorite instrument, the piano, in second grade. Everyone in Hadar’s family is musical, so she started learning the piano so she can keep the tradition going! She loves her teacher, Ms. Laurie, and that every time she walks into her lesson, there’s a smile waiting to greet her! Hadar’s favorite thing about music is always being able to learn more and knowing that even if she makes a mistake, it’s okay. Every week with Ms. Laurie, she sets a small goal for herself and is just always trying to get better, and always trying to reach those goals. Hadar attends the Columbus Jewish Day School, and her favorite subject is Bible studies. Her favorite food is sushi, and her favorite place to go in Bexley is the library. She loves playing “Telestrations” with her family, and if she could meet a famous person, she would choose Taylor Swift or Lizzo. Thanks for being our Student of the Month, Hadar!

His favorite food is tiramisu, but he’s also a fan of Johnson’s Ice Cream.
