Dear Parents,

Happy Snow Day!  On behalf of the Hamagrael Elementary staff I want to wish you all a very happy, healthy and safe holiday season.  This is always a special time of the year as the kids are looking forward to the break and we are all able to spend some extra time with family and friends.

All Bethlehem Central Schools will be closed from December 24 through January 1.  We will resume school on Tuesday, January 2, 2018.

The month of January looks to be quite busy here at Hamagrael as we have a lot of programs scheduled including CAPER, Family Math & Science Nights, a PTA meeting, a BCSD Board of Education meeting and our winter concert.  Please make sure to check our website for updates on dates and times of our events.  The Hamagrael Winter Concert schedule has been finalized:

Once again, Happy Holidays and thanks for sharing your children with us.  It is a pleasure having the opportunity to work with them.
