We are very proud to be a partner in the JCC/Tottenville High School Solar Pirates Beacon program and elated that the students have accomplished so much over the last few years. Special thanks to coaches Gerard D’Ambrosio and Charles Dazzo for all of the work that they achieve with the students and for the guidance and support that they provide to the program.

Celebrating Holidays the ECE Way It seems that we’ve just returned to school, and the Jewish holidays are upon us. Rosh Hashanah is the perfect holiday for the beginning of the school year. Celebrating the Jewish New Year gives us an excellent framework in which to study beginnings and to look at how much we’ve grown. Although we do lots of grown-up serious things on Rosh Hashanah, don’t neglect to share the fun, childlike aspects of the holiday with your child. Dip apple slices in honey, take a nature walk together and observe how the world is changing, look at baby pictures and let your child tell you how much they have changed. Now is a good time to start a holiday photo album. Make a page for each holiday. Take a picture of your child and/or family at each holiday, and add it to the page so you can see how much you’ve all grown from year to year. Teach your child about sharing good wishes for the New Year by letting them help make the cards. You can make something together on the computer, or photocopy your child’s drawing to use as your card. And, of course, let your child drop all the cards in the mailbox! L’shanah tovah tikatayvu—May you be inscribed for a good year in the book of life.
