Welcome to the Hamagrael PTA

Dear Hamagrael Parents and Friends:

Thanks to all who attended our first PTA meeting of the year. If you were unable to make it but want to know what you missed, please read the minutes from our meeting [PDF]. We are still looking for a Co-President and for volunteers to join the following committees: Craft Fair, Movie Night, School Banking, Science Fair, Skating Night and Yearbook. Joining one of these teams is a great way to get to know the school and fellow parents better while giving something back. If you have volunteered but have not yet heard from us, we will be in touch shortly.

The Fall Family Picnic is Sunday, September 22. If you can help during this fun event by taking a short shift cooking or serving food, please contact us. If you wish to attend but haven't yet returned a slip, you can find a copy below. Please join us!

Wednesday, Oct. 9 is Walk to School Day. Join this international day promoting pedestrian safety and walking as a healthy choice for our children and for the planet. If you are interested in helping out with the event, let us know.

Also, in the next few weeks, look out for our annual Gift Card Fundraiser. Order gift cards from a choice of many chain stores and restaurants and earn money back for the school. You don't even need to give them as gifts. Buy cards for places you visit regularly and use them as cash!

Lastly, mark your calendars for the 30th anniversary Hamagrael Craft Fair, taking place on Saturday, Dec. 7. Don't forget to like the Hamagrael Handcrafted Craft Fair page on Facebook!

Thank you!

The Hamagrael PTA Board
