Monday 1pm Art to Grow On
Art classes with Lauren Perelmuter begin on Monday, March 3. Classes
are offered on Mondays and Thursdays from 1 - 2pm.
This program is the easiest way to raise money for Tuvia & Temple
Menorah. There is no cost to you. After your credit card is registered
with the program, then you use your card at various stores and the
vendor then sends us a donation. There are no Internet transactions.
See Laural or Michelle for more information and applications.
CONNECTIONS FOR CHILDREN
Tuvia was awarded an Inclusion grant from Connections for Children.
Two on-site consultants, Suzanne Lowe & Michelle Kennedy, have
been observing and are making suggestions on how to improve our
classroom environments to accommodate all children. Our Kindergarten
has a new quiet area, and you may hear classical music. We’ll
keep you posted on our changes.
