We have another snow day today!
Today was supposed to be our Purim dress up. We have postponed our Purim Dress up to Wednesday March 3rd.
Monday(March 1st) is picture day as and on Tuesday some of our Toddlers are not in school, therefore we will be using our imaginations as we do in Preschool and making Purim on Wednesday.
Stay safe in the blizzard! Shabbat Shalom. Elana Helfgott

Haiti Collections-Thank you!

We want to thank our wonderful Preschool families for all in your help in your generous collections for Haiti.
We collected bins full of medical supplies and clothing. Our classroom Tzedakah money along with other donations for this cause amounted to $1200. A check representing our school and synagogue was sent to "Stop Hunger Now"
Kudos to Amy Kaufman who is celebrating a birthday and has asked her friends to donate to this cause in lieu of gifts. We hope all of these supplies and donations will bring relief to our friends in Haiti during this difficult time.

Author's Teas

We are so excited here at OWHC Preschool. All of our 3 year nursery & Pre-K children have become authors!
Every child has had an opportunity to author and illustrate their own book. To celebrate parents and family members are invited to join us this week for a special "Author's Tea" Each child will have a chance to read and present their own book. Alphabet and tea snacks will be served. We look forward to sharing this milestone with you all!


February is dental awareness month. We are so lucky that Dr. Michele Savel has been gracious enough to visit with all of our children today.
Dr. Savel spoke to us about how to properly care for our teeth and about healthy eating. Her dinosaur puppet squirted water at us as he was brushing his teeth! It was so funny!
Dr. Savel brought "dental goodie bags "for us all .The children will be writting thank you letters to Dr. Savel. We thank Dr. Savel for coming to visit the children at OWHC!
