Dear Parents,

On Tuesday, November 20 schools across New York State will celebrate “School Related Professionals Day”.  This is a day set aside to acknowledge the contributions of our School Related Professional in helping educate our students.  This group includes our bus drivers, nurses, custodians, secretaries, clerical assistants, food service workers, noon aides and aides to students.  We are fortunate to have such a dedicated group of professionals here at Hamagrael working with our children. Thanks to our School Related Professional and for being so dedicated to your work; it is greatly appreciated!

On Monday, November 19 there will be a parent program held at Eagle Elementary School beginning at 6:30 p.m.  The title for the program is “Managing Technology – Wake up Before It’s Too Late Setting Sensible Limits and Practice Solutions to Avoid Dangerous Mistakes.”  The presenter for the workshop is Dr. Randy Cale, a licensed psychologist, author and has been here in our district numerous times presenting on a variety of topics.

If you ordered Thanksgiving pies through our PTA you can pick them up on Tuesday, November 20 from 3:15-6:00 p.m. in our front hallway.

This year our Read for Ronald McDonald House donations totaled $1,205.  The money raised is dedicated to helping provide families of seriously ill children with a home away from home.  Thanks to our children, staff, parents and PTA for their support of this cause.

Our Thanksgiving Break will begin on Wednesday, November 21 and will go through Sunday, November 25.  On behalf of the staff at Hamagrael Elementary School I would like to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Thanksgiving.  This is the time of year to give thanks for all we have and I know that all of us here feel fortunate to work with you and your children.  Thanks for being partners with us throughout the year; it truly makes a difference.

Have a wonderful weekend.
