We are in need of volunteers to cook turkeys for the children's Thanksgiving Feast on the 23rd.  If you are interested in helping out, email to sign up and a turkey will be provided to you to cook in your home and bring to school the morning of the feast. Thanks in advance!

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.  Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.  Join the #unselfie movement.  Donate to NIS and then post a picture of yourself on social media holding a sign telling people why you gave to NIS.  It's a fun way to give back.
Join other NIS families over Winter Recess on December 28th at the Safari Adventure in Riverhead!  Help raise funds for NIS while meeting other families and getting your children out of the house and busy over break!  There's something for everyone there, including a sensory room for children who may get overstimulated.  Visit for more info.  Registration details to follow soon.

Thanks to you, we raised $2,800 on coupon book sales and over $500 on mum sales!  We hope you will order keepsakes featuring your children's original artwork.  Order forms are due on the 14th.  You will also be receiving proofs of your children's portraits in the coming days!
