As we head in the holidays, it is very important that we prioritize safety and limit the potential spread of COVID-19 so we can continue to remain open for in person instruction. This is a letter from my granddaughters’ school in Baltimore, Maryland regarding travel and celebration guidelines. Please be vigilant and stay safe so we can keep Abrams open.
Please fill out the white emergency cards that were sent home and return them to the office. It is very important that the school has the most current contact information on file. You can contact the office with any questions.
This is a reminder that classroom and bus windows are remaining open even as the weather cools off. We are also continuing to be outside as much as possible. This will hold true even in the cold weather. Please send your children in with sweatshirts and jackets (and coats later on in the fall/winter). Make sure all belongings are labeled!

This week a new air-conditioning unit was installed in the gym.
Support Abrams by purchasing a commemorative brick on the wall in the Link for a $100 donation. The bricks are made of colored Plexiglas and visibly located on the wall outside the gym.
Buy a brick to commemorate a special occasion- it is a wonderful and lasting gift to celebrate a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, birthday, anniversary, graduation, or to recognize the memory of a loved one or friend.
Your donation will be acknowledged to the recipient, and Abrams will benefit from your donation.
Please contact the office if you would like to purchase a brick.

Abrams thanks Oorah, a nonprofit organization located in Lakewood, NJ for all of its financial support to our students.
Oorah sponsors numerous programs that all share the common goal of opening doors for Jewish children and families. The mission is to reach out to Jewish families everywhere with opportunities to make their Judaic heritage more personal, relevant and meaningful.
Abrams received $100,000 in scholarship aid for qualified families this year from Oorah and is extremely grateful for the generosity of this organization.
Please note our updated dress code and cell phone policies.
Abrams strives, through the dress code, to maximize the learning environment. Respect for the sensitivities of others requires that students/parents/guests follow reasonable standards of modesty and privacy. We ask that students/parents/guests dress in a manner befitting a Jewish day school when entering the building.
Electronic devices have become a common means of communication and information access in today’s society. However, these devices have the potential of disrupting the orderly operation of school. Our cell phone/personal electronic devices policy is designed to keep the focus on education.
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. Please call Cramer’s, 215-321-5707 to place your order.
