Dear Hamagrael Parents/Guardians:

We hope this letter finds you enjoying a fantastic summer! We are very excited about the year ahead and all that is in store for our children. We would like to thank many of you for reaching out to us after the SNN email was sent regarding Committee Chair vacancies. The response was fantastic and we are grateful to many of you for your help.

The PTA Board would like to introduce ourselves:

  • Co-Presidents: Erin Svare & Gianna Aiezza
  • Co-Treasurers: Kellie Rancourt & Sarah Metcalfe
  • Co-Secretaries: Katie Bush & Erin LaDue
  • Teacher Reps: Mary Szczech & Allison Hepfer

The PTA works to enrich the academic and social aspects of our children’s education at Hamagrael through events and activities. These events require the support of many parents. As fellow parents, we appreciate any amount of volunteer time you can offer and we believe in the familiar quote “that many hands make light work”. Your involvement will enhance your child’s experience at Hamagrael and you will have fun getting to know other families in the process.

Some important PTA dates to mark on your calendar:

  • Sept. 7, Opening Day Coffee: 9:20 a.m., Hamagrael Cafeteria
  • Sept. 18, Fall Family Picnic: 4-6 p.m., Hamagrael Playground
  • Sept. 20, First PTA Meeting: 7 p.m., Hamagrael Cafeteria

Come meet us and other volunteers for coffee on the first day of school! We recognize that many parent’s work schedules may not accommodate this brief “Welcome” event. If you are able to join us at the first PTA meeting, we’d love to have you there. Both are great opportunities to hear about what is planned for this year and learn how to get involved.

There will be several PTA forms sent out for the various events this Fall. The PTA sends emails about school events (including parties) to keep families in the loop. In order to ensure you receive these emails, please sign up for the PTA directory! The forms will be on Aspen, as well as the PTA page of the Hamagrael website (Forms to look for: Directory/Membership [PDF], PTA Committee Volunteer Form [PDF] and Fall Family Picnic [PDF], among others). 

Enjoy the rest of the summer — we look forward to seeing you on September 7th or soon after!
