Monday Message

Teacher Appreciation Week
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. I am so grateful for all of our amazing teachers! 

Important Opportunity
This is an important invitation to parents in  Watertown. In response to the recent events, the Watertown Public Schools has been able to obtain the services of the Israel Trauma Coalition (ITC) to work with school leadership, staff and parents to help create a recovery process for our schools and community.
The ITC will be meeting with parents on Tuesday evening, May 7th at 6:30 p.m. and then again on Friday morning, May 10th at 8:45 a.m. Both events will be held in the Hosmer School auditorium.  The focus of the discussion will be supporting families in the coping and recovering process. 
The ITC travels around the world to strengthen community resilience following disasters. We are fortunate to have them share their expertise with us. The Combined Jewish Philanthropies, is sponsoring the ITC trip and work in Watertown.
We hope you will be able to attend one of these sessions.
