Weekly Memo

Updated: Jan 22, 2019

Dear Levey Families and Friends,

It was wonderful seeing so many families at Saturday night’s Sparkle Havdalah event at the JCA. Thanks to those teachers (Debbie, Sarah, and Aaron) who volunteered their time and represented Levey at our table! We had a blast face painting! Be sure to check out our Facebook and Instagram feed for photos. Due to last week's delayed opening and canceled day, we are extending DASH WEEK —SPACE! into this week. The field trip to the Planetarium was great on Friday afternoon. Thank you to Stacie Bowden (Thea, Pre-K) and Ari Kollangi (Lyla, K) for driving/chaperoning.

It’s cold outside, and we’re having a ball!  Just a reminder — please make sure to pack snow pants, water-resistant mittens, hat, boots and any other warm garments they need for outdoor recess.  We go outside in all kinds of weather!

We wish everyone a healthy and happy long weekend this coming weekend in celebration of Martin Luther King Day!

Wear your NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS GEAR *or* LEVEY GEAR for Spirit Day this Friday!  Order your Levey gear — see order forms below!   :)
