Temple Emanu-El PTO
Thank you to everyone who helped the PTO this year. We are looking ahead to next school year, and we are thinking of introducing some new activities and/or fundraisers such a BINGO calendar, a charoset contest, etc. If you have any ideas, please share. We’d love to hear them, and we’d love for more parents and community members to get involved. Lastly, thank you very much to the teachers, to the madrichim, to Debbi, to Rabbi Mona, to Cantor Vera, and to Don for a fantastic school year!
PTO Paint Night
Our PTO-sponsored Religious School read-a-thon was a big hit. The following participants read books with Jewish themes or by Jewish authors; some even read books in Hebrew:
Every reader will receive a $10 Barnes & Noble gift card to treat themselves to more books! This is one of the many enrichment activities supported by the Adeline B. Watnick Religious School Children’s Fund.
We want to thank Lisa Desberg, Scott and Andi Hannula, Mitch and Judy Kroner, Michael and Amy Sherr, and David Watnick, who purchased Mishkan T’filah personalized name plates with all proceeds going to the Adeline B. Watnick Religious School Children’s Fund.
Please know that you’re always invited to participate in PTO events. We’ve already started planning for next year, so feel free to contact Lisa Desberg, 978-360-8298 or firstname.lastname@example.org, with any ideas that you’d like to see come to life!

Kugel Bake-Off FUNdraiser. The PTO would like to thank everyone who participated in the recent Kugel Bake-Off. After the kugel was eaten and the votes were tallied, Lisa Desberg and Andi Hannula tied for first place, with Laura Flieder coming in second. Congratulations to our winners! Everyone present was able to partake of a wonderful breakfast and enjoy the Adult Education presentation, "Why Jews by Choice Choose Judaism." The FUNdraiser earned over $200 for the Adeline B. Watnick Religious School Children's Fund.
