School Registration & more

I hope everyone’s summer is going well.

This Friday’s beach service is sponsored by the Membership  Committee and will be (extra) fun for the kids. Please come, bring friends!  Jabberwocky Beach, OB, look for new Shalom sign.

Next year’s school registration is on line at: 2016-17 Registration. Kindly complete at your earliest convenience and deliver it to the office.

We are still looking for teachers if you have anyone to refer please do!

Finally, on a somber note, as the 2016 Olympics approach, never forget what happened in Munich in 1972.

Beach Services!

Welcome Shabbat tomorrow at 6PM  at Jabberwocky Beach, Oak Bluffs (Srare Beach between the bridges).

Summer beach service dates: Fridays at 6PM: July 1, 8, 15, 22, 29; August 5, 19, & 26.

Join us for prayer, song & beauty.

All are welcome!



Fiddler on the Roof Movie Tomorrow!

One more sunset and sunrise until our exclusive showing of “FIDDLER ON THE ROOF” at the Film Center in Vineyard Haven.

School will be dismissed at noon, doors open 12:15PM and the film will begin at 12:30PM. There will be one intermission and the movie will end at approximately 3:45PM.

Children fourth grade and under will need adult supervision.

Please check with your student(s) when they will have lunch at school so they are not already hungry at noon!




Important dates!

Friday 5/20 at 5:30PM: final potluck of the school year. Please bring a healthy casserole or salad (vegetarian or parve). We will provide macaroni & cheese & dessert. Please have your student dress appropriately for Shabbat.

Wednesday 5/25 at 5:30PM cookout & picnic at Quansoo Beach to celebrate Lag B’Omer.

This past year 5th-7th graders watched & discussed the songs of  “Fiddler  on the Roof”. To culminate this we will watch the 1971 film on Wednesday 6/1 at 12:30PM at the MV Film Center (Beach Road, Vineyard Haven). It is a half day of school. Please arrive by 12:30PM – feel free to stay & watch! Snacks will be sold by their concession stand. The movie is free to our students & all MVHC members (though donations accepted to offset Film Center rental cost).  If you wish to bring younger children (under 5th grade) please do, but they will need to be accompanied by an adult.

These are all events that your kids (& you) will enjoy!  

Kindly RSVP to this post regarding each event. Thanks.
