Who smiles more during Grandparents’ Day?

by | Dec 23, 2014 | Other News

The last day of school before Thanksgiving break is always an exciting one, and not just because it kicks off the start of a long holiday weekend. It is also when all the students at Hebrew Academy and the Strelitz preschool host Grandparents’ Day, a cherished tradition packed with fun, family and lots of love.

This year’s Grandparents’ Day was no exception, marked with a strings performance by fourth and fifth graders and singing performances by preschoolers and kindergarten through third grade students. There’s nothing like watching grandparents watching their grandchildren perform. It’s debatable who smiles more—the adults or the kids.

Patti Seeman, HAT co-development director, addressed the audience after the performance, reminding everyone of the value of a Jewish Day School education. This year, a special giving opportunity was offered to honor the 60 years that Hebrew Academy and the preschool have served as a Tree of Life for the community. Beautiful, commemorative candles were displayed and offered to donors who made a onetime gift to the 60th Campaign, co-chaired by Leora Drory and Bonnie Brand, past HAT parents and current board members. Contact Patti Seeman or Deb Segaloff, co-development directors, at 424-4327, for more information about giving.
