No bus - Pickup Times

Written by

Dear Parents of Elementary students,

Thank you for your cooperation in bringing your children on time and picking them up on time during the days that busing is not provided. We know it is difficult. We also appreciate your cooperation in supporting your child to meet his/her responsibilities in being on time to school.

Some parents have several pick up times depending on whether they may have a child both in Preschool and in Elementary. When students are picked up early they miss out on vital learning. In addition the interruption causes disruption to the lesson for the other students in the class.

Here are some ideas that may help manage multiple pick up times. You can do these while you wait for the next pick up time: carpool, visit the New City library only a block away, shop at ShopRite or Stop 'N' Shop - both a minute away down the road.

Pick up Times:

  • Mon - Wed pick up (grades K-7): 4:35 - 4:40 pm
  • Friday pick up (grades K-7): 1:25 - 1:30 pm

Friday pick up (Preschool): 1:05 - 1:15 pm.

We appreciate your punctuality.

Volunteers Needed

Written by

Dear Parents,

This is a reminder that the Book Fair starts after lunch, this Monday, December 15th and will continue until Wednesday, December 24th. It will be located in the student lounge outside of the gym.

Parent volunteers are needed to help with our Book Fair. Please reply to this email if you are available to volunteer any hours during the day. It is my hope that the fair will be open throughout the course of the school day.

On Tuesday evening, December 23rd, we will also need a significant number of parent volunteers at the Chanukah Expo, because books will be for sale throughout the night.

Please think about purchasing books from the Book Fair for Chanukah, because books make an excellent gift. There will be other types of chotkas for sale as well.

Thank you.

Chanukah Goft Drive Reminder

Written by

Dear Parents,

As Chanukah draws near, please join us in showing Hakarat Hatov to our teachers in thanks for their hard work in caring for our children by contributing to the Chanukah Gift Drive. Please understand that this money will be given directly to the teachers, divided evenly, and is not a donation to the school. The recommended donation amount is $36 per child. This amount will include administration, Secular, Judaic and any specialty teachers that the children have on a regular basis – Physical Education, Music, Computers and Art.

Please send in the money by Friday, Dec. 12 so PTA will have enough time to organize distribution before Chanukah. Please write your child's name on the envelope together with “Chanukah Gifts for Teachers” and indicate your child(ren)’s grade. You may also want to email us to notify us that you are sending in the money and we will ask your child for it, so there won’t be any mix-ups! Please put Chanukah Gift in subject box.

Thank you for your support of our children.

Best wishes for a very Happy Chanukah.

Kind Regards,

Nechama Fish and Corrinne Morlevi
The Hebrew Academy PTA Co-Presidents

Scholastic Book fair

Written by

Dear Parents,

Mark your calendars so that you will not miss our Scholastic Book Fair. This book fair will be conducted from Monday, December 15th through Wednesday, December 24th.

Our book fair gives you and your child the opportunity to buy carefully selected, quality books and products. You'll enjoy all of the excitement; plus, our book fair serves as a fundraiser for our school.

A brief book list was given to your child/ren that gives you a preview of some of the books offered at our fair. In addition to secular books, there will also be a collection of Judaic books.

Since this is such an exciting event, there will be several opportunities for parents and children to look over the selection of books and make purchases. Over the course of the 8 days, each class will have the opportunity to come to the display and purchase books. As parents drop off and pick up their children, they are welcome to come in and make purchases.

On Tuesday, December 23rd, at the Chanukah Expo, you will also have an opportunity to review and purchase books.

At our book fair, we are offering you the chance to give the gift of reading. You can help your child's classroom increase its library with the "Classroom Wish List" program. Just look for the "Classroom Wish List" display.

Our Scholastic Book Fair will be a great event for everyone. We invite to attend and look forward to seeing you!
