This Thursday we have an assembly at 6:00 for 2nd quarter check in on My Passport to a Jewish Year.  Please have your child bring in her/his passport with ‘mitzvahs’ for this quarter.

Mitzvah Day of Service

On January 25th our school and Ohavi Zedek’s Hebrew School are joining together for a day of service to benefit the Franklin County Humane Society.  There is going to be a special speaker and a short program at OZ at 10 a.m.  You will be assigned a pet food item to bring that day (separate email).  All the students will be making goody-bags for the pets at the shelter.

If your child has or had a pet, please bring a picture of that pet for our Animal Hall of Fame

7th grade students from both schools will make a presentation of their mitzvah projects, so students, please make a poster or trifold.

Here's hoping 2015 is a wonderful year for you and your family.
