Purim is coming soon! We hope that you will join our school celebration by taking part in the CDS Parent Association’s Mishloach Manot Project.

This year, our theme will be: Hello Spring!
 
The mitzvah of sending Mishloach Manot, or Purim baskets, instills harmony and love among the Jewish people and reminds us we cannot forget about the needs of the less fortunate in our community even as we celebrate.
 
On Monday, March 9, everyone in the Community Day School family will receive identical baskets featuring a variety of Spring-themed novelties and kosher food items.
 
Support of this project not only fosters community and festive celebration, but it is also a major fundraiser for the Parent Association. Funds raised support many of the Parent Association projects, including initiatives like the GRANTED! program.
 
This fall, through the GRANTED! program, the Parent Association donated funds for tools for rock and mineral explorations, a CDS Lions custom tent for sporting events, sensory tools for classroom use, a bestselling author visit, and much more.
 
Attached to each Mishloach Manot will be a brochure listing your name together with other individuals and families who so generously make a contribution.

Please click here to make your donation.

Thank you for your support, and Chag Purim Sameach!
