Abrams 5th Grade Students 

Singing Chanukah songs at the 

NJ State Capital


Abrams 5th grade students participated in the Chanukah celebration at the New Jersey State Capital this week. Led by Mrs. Solomon, the students sang for the Lt. Governor and other notables at the annual event.

Circus Chanukah


8th Grade and Abrams Residence Seniors



Abrams 8th grade students visited seniors at the Abrams Residence to celebrate Chanukah. AHA students and seniors decorated Chanukah mugs, ate Sufganiot, sang Chanukah songs, and shared time and stories with one another. 
The visit was part of the “Better Together” program funded by a grant from the Legacy Heritage Fund to provide opportunities for students to interact with the elderly and engage in meaningful dialogue.
A great time was had by all-  Happy Chanukah!



Menorah Contest



Abrams students created their artistic interpretations of Menorahs for the AHA annual Menorah contest!

Safety and Security Reminders


Just a reminder of AHA security procedures:

  • All parents should use the front door to enter the school with key cards and not the back doors. Parent swipe cards only work at front door.
  • Please do not ask students to open any doors- parents must report to the front office and check-in before entering the school.
  • No student or other person should use the lunchroom doors other than for dismissal or emergency purposes.

These rules are for our children’s safety.

Thank you for your cooperation!
