Religious School News

THE PRINCIPAL NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!!
Dear CNT Families,  for the past two months articles and announcements have been made 
seeking to fill positions at our school.  We are still in need of volunteer teachers:
Kindergarten Lead + 7th Grade Assistant  

Over the years many of you have asked me if I needed help...well, now is the time.
Lesson plans are provided and written in a clear format. Religious School is three hours on Sunday, 9:00 am - 12:00 noon.I cannot continue every Sunday dividing my duties between a classroom and proper administration of the school. I need volunteers to step forward.
We are all invested in the future of Congregation Ner Tamid
and it starts with our children. I look forward to hearing from you soon,
Elaine Gutenstein, Principal 
Congregation Ner Tamid Religious School  

BRING US YOUR BOX TOPS! 
Thank you all for helping the Religious School by bringing in your Box Tops
for Education. We will be getting approximately $100. Please keep them coming.
Maybe we can do even better next year. - Elaine and Sue H

I will be biking 150 miles over a 4 month period to raise $1,500 for a much needed  new shed at Bosley's Place, a nursery for homeless and orphaned neonatal and underage puppies located in Smyrna, GA. To learn more about the project and donate  to my cause, please visit my website at  https://blairbear85.wixsite.com/mysite .

we'd like to 
once again thank everyone who helped behind the scences to make
