October 9 is the first day of Sukkot

Here is a way to continue to educate yourself about another Jewish celebration. Feel free to share with your students.
Sukkot - A Celebration For Every Nation!

HSE Foundation

Jeff Pratt, our rep from the HSE Foundation, has asked that we all follow the Foundation on Twitter @HSEFoundation. The Foundation supported the Pasta Drive we did a few weeks ago as well as gives grants to teachers.

From the book

Ah! the immensity of the

value of persons to each

other, and of kind deeds

and affectionate inventions

between them, for the

making of happiness!

~James VIla Blake, More Than Kin

You are your own little light, shine bright so everyone can see. ~Elizbeth

There are always flowers

for those who want to

see them.

~Henri Matisse

When given the choice between being

right or being kind, choose kind.

~Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Your deeds are your monuments. ~Inscription on an Egyptian tomb

I do not believe in a fate that falls

on men however they act; but I

do believe in a fate that falls on

them unless they act.

~G. K. Chesterton

It is better to be in the dark with a friend than to be in the light without one. ~John

What you do

every day

matters more

than what you

do every once

in a while.


Don't cry

because it's




it happened.

~Dr. Seuss
