First grade HDS school students are now at grade level four. Why do HDS children rank so high? Dr. Selig stress "individualized program." Teachers know every student, "every student's strengths and weaknesses, know where every student needs to grow." Creative learning is emphasized to fight "leisure abuse." Students get homework every night, a "responsibility at home and a commitment to study," Dr. Selig said. HDS students "want to learn, like to read rather than watch television."

"Fund-raising is exhausted each month, just to keep the doors open," Dr. Selig said. "These are trying, strenuous conditions but it's the same in every day school. We are fiscally prudent, but not at the expense of the students. We don't spare anything on the children. Growth is im- portant." Dr. Selig said he hopes within the next year to 18- months, the school, which now rents space at Temple Israel, will have its own building. "The needs are increasing rapidly. In all practicality we have to have our own place. As we get more facilities and resources we can do more. Each year we have to do more and do it better." Each year the school does more. This year the school had its first annual science fair held last week. It formed a Student Council last month and a newspaper committee. The Student Council is beginning fund-raising activities. It sells Shabbat candles and challah Friday afternoons for a nominal fee and has planned a car wash on Sun., June I, ] 0 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Burger King across from the Altamonte Mall. Next year, Dr. Selig said, the school hopes to hold more exhibits in art, literature, poetry and math, in addition to the second science fair. He would also like to see an afterschool elective program and a lunch program along with progress in all departments. last minute one of the displays. HERITAGE, Florida Jewish News. May 23.
