Shalom Horim/Dear Parents:
Yesterday at the annual meeting two parents came up to me thinking the school service was this Friday night. Let me clarify:
The School Service is this Saturday, December 15. (We have one other Saturday service, March 16).
This service should not be confused with the Friday night Grade/Class services, which are all noted on the calendar.
The Saturday services will have all the students participating in a small portion of the service. It is an opportunity for you and your child to see what a Saturday morning service is like at Temple Sinai with Rabbi Edleson.
The service begins at 9:30 a.m.
Other important news
This Sunday there was a burst pipe and it affected the men's bathroom in the school as well as some of Classroom #1. I don't yet know what things will look like on Thursday, but we do have two independent bathrooms in the Social Hall so bathroom use should not be a problem.
Following the tragic events at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Morah Shelli's class decided to use their class tzedakah collection to send to HIAS. They also want to raise additional funds and are holding a bake sale this Thursday. Items will be in the $.25-1.00 range, baked by the students in Kitah 4-5, and will be on sale before, during and after school. So please send your child in with a few extra farthings for this.
We are collecting new, unwrapped toys, books, and cards [written by you and your children], to send to the families in Paradise CA to offer some holiday cheer under very trying circumstances. You can send it in with your child on Thursday to school, or bring it Saturday to the service. I will be mailing the gifts on Monday so Saturday is the cut-off date to bring the items.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
