May 2021
Hi friends

May brings three of my favourite things - Shavuot, a fun, kid-friendly holiday celebating the receiving of the Ten Commandments on Mt Sinai, the May long weekend and Mother's Day!
PJOW families please remember to choose your books and anyone whose child is 8 1/2 or older can sign up your kids for this fabulous program. Registration is not automatic and I cannot do it for you.
As always, a reminder to let me know if your address has changed, if you have added to your family, or if you know of any new arrivals to our community.
Hope to see you at our Shavuot Sundaes on May 16th (details below).
Enjoy the sunshine!
