The teachers have been set up with a new voicemail system through Ring Central. When you call the number, it will ask for an extension or you can dial by last name. Once you get through to your extension, you can leave a voicemail and the teacher will be sent directly to their email. From there, they can check their voicemail without having to be disturbed in the classroom.

The research is clear; parent involvement in their children’s schools heightens the students’ achievement significantly. Additionally, by attending the meetings, you have numerous opportunities to make a difference in the school! Don’t take this request lightly – we need your help and participation.
The Parent Association helps fund the “extras” that the school might otherwise do without. ‘Extras’ include student holiday treats, student entertainment, classroom and library reading books, Teacher/Staff token appreciation, Tzedakah, and more. Please keep your eye out for several upcoming fundraisers. In the meantime, Parent Association gladly accepts donations of any amount to help support the school as needed. (Suggested contribution: $25 per Family)
Thank you to the following families who have generously donated money to the PA Fund for the 2013-2014 school year:
A Major Concern of Baby Boomers as They Approach Retirement
Am I saving enough for retirement? How much money will I need? How can I maximize my Social Security? The Jewish Community Foundation is hosting a free workshop, facilitated by financial professionals, that will explore these questions and more. It is not too early or too late to learn more about these topics. Free and open to the community; reservations are recommended so there will be enough materials. There will be no solicitations.
Abraham’s servant Eliezer is sent, laden with gifts, to Charan, to find a wife for Isaac. At the village well, Eliezer asks G‑d for a sign: when the maidens come to the well, he will ask for some water to drink; the woman who will offer to give his camels to drink as well shall be the one destined for his master’s son.
Rebecca, the daughter of Abraham’s nephew Bethuel, appears at the well and passes the “test.” Eliezer is invited to their home, where he repeats the story of the day’s events. Rebecca returns with Eliezer to the land of Canaan, where they encounter Isaac praying in the field. Isaac marries Rebecca, loves her, and is comforted over the loss of his mother.
Abraham takes a new wife, Keturah ( Hagar), and fathers six additional sons, but Isaac is designated as his only heir. Abraham dies at age 175 and is buried beside Sarah by his two eldest sons, Isaac and Ishmael.
