Once again, our PTA delivered to our children and staff an incredible experience at the Thanksgiving Feast. We offer our heartfelt thanks to all of you who support our PTA, and especially the following parents who were intensely involved with the set up and planning of this event, which never fails to amaze all of us who are fortunate to attend. Special thanks go to Mrs. Leone, Mr. Mazzeo, Mrs. Cohen, Mrs. Higgins, Mrs. LeBron and Mrs. Iammarino. (Just imagine serving lunch or dinner to 500 family members and you have an idea of what is involved.)
The month of December is our fairness month and again we will be looking for that trait in all of our students. As it is the time of the year when people of all faiths seek to share the blessings and goodness of their lives, we think it is appropriate to highlight that trait and remind our children how fortunate they are and just how capable they are of treating all others fairly and bringing happiness and a smile to the faces of everyone with whom they come in contact. Toward that end, Student Council is running their annual Coat Drive. We will also accept gloves, hats, ski pants and anything that could help others enjoy the coming cold weather.
Fairness is a concept we can all reflect upon this time of year. We want our future and that of our kids' to be filled with it. Ultimately, as Marian Wright Edelman said, "We must remember that the future we hold in trust for our children will be shaped by our fairness to other people's children."
On behalf of a grateful staff, I am happy to wish you all a happy and healthy holiday season.
