Harlem Hebrew Family Get-together a Fun Start to the School Year!

n Sunday August 30th approximately 200 people gathered for the third annual Harlem Hebrew Language Academy Charter School’s Get-together on the Great Hill in Central Park, coordinated by our school’s Parent Organization. Class signs waved in the wind calling out to new and returning families to meet at their class designation. Students, siblings, parents, guardians, school teachers and support staff wore name labels and had fun with the temporary tattoos, balloons and beach balls. Picnic blankets were strewn across the lawn with a centralized location for shared snacks and a clothing swap. As Jill A., a Kindergarten parent remarked, “We’re giddy. We feel as if we’re not only being welcomed into a new school, but welcomed into a new community.”
