Hi friends
Finally! The sun is shining and it definitely feels like summer. School will be out, things are opening up and we can start to exhale.
We have invited the entire community to join our June program which combines our love of cooking, with our love of Brunch, and our love of Israel. Please join us for Shakshuka Sunday on June 13th at 10am. Everyone is welcome.
Please let me know if you are moving and need to change your address. Remember it takes four to six weeks for an address change to be processed.
PJ Our Way families please remember to choose your books by June 10th and families with children who are 8 1/2 , please register for PJ Our Way as registration is not automatic and I cannot do it for you.
Enjoy the sunshine!
