EITC Participation for Individuals
 
The Foundation for Jewish Day Schools, which  has been approved as a Special Purpose Entity (SPE), just announced that there is an opportunity for AHA to receive extra EITC funding from people who sign up for the program NOW.
This means that individuals who pay individual income taxes to PA can now participate in the EITC program by joining the SPE before the regular sign-up date of July 1, 2016.
****Remember- you no longer have to own a business to participate in EITC.  EVERYONE who pays taxes in PA can support the school and gain a tax credit by applying to the EITC program.
This is a great opportunity for Abrams families and supporters who pay at least $5000 in PA State taxes to help themselves and Abrams through their participation in the program and for Abrams to receive the money sooner.
If you qualify, please take this opportunity to help the school and benefit from a tax credit for yourself. If you know someone whom you believe qualifies and would be interested in helping to ensure Abrams’ future, please ask them if we can contact them. The future of OUR school depends on raising funds, and EITC is a win-win for everyone.
The process is not difficult, and the Foundation for Jewish Day Schools will provide guidance on this process so that you can participate as an individual.
Call Rabbi Budow at (215) 584-7919; or contact Ellen Matz at ematz@jfgp.org; or call (215) 832-0525 for more information.

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!

 

 

 

Car Pool Rules 

All Parents who Car Pool:

 

Please note that the car pool line is for grades N and K only. All other students are to be dropped off in the front of the building.

 

Parents who use the back for drop off should follow the directions of the teachers in the parking lot. They are there to assist students and maintain a safe environment.  

 

Under no circumstances are parents to park their cars in the middle of the line and leave them unattended to walk students into the building.  

 

** We ask that parents refrain from cellphone use in the parking areas while dropping off and picking up their children.

 

Abrams Notes
 

Birthday Celebrations at School

In order to maintain a consistent kashrut policy and to avoid confusion, ALL orders for birthday cakes/cupcakes MUST be ordered from Cramer’s Bakery, 16 E. Afton Avenue, Yardley. Cramer’s will deliver the order to the school at a discounted price.
