We will have an in-school Mitzvah Day*. Classes will be held from 9-12 as usual, and teachers will be leading our children as they participate in many mitzvot during the first part of the day. Mitzvot will include matanot l’evyonim (gifts to the poor at Purim), shalach manot (gifts to friends at Purim), and kashrut (keeping kosher – 6th grade activity). At approximately 11:15, our entire school will participate in the Memories of Love Fun Run/Rally. Many of you have already donated through sponsorships to this wonderful charity for children with a life-threatening illness. Click HERE to learn more about the Memories of Love Foundation. We will dismiss at 12 noon as usual.
*As part of Mitzvah Day, all tzedakah collected will be donated to Memories of Love. Also, we will be collecting toiletries items for FANN (tooth brushes, toothpaste, small shampoos, soaps, lotions, diapers, etc).
