Purim is the time to be happy! It is also the time to spread joy and make sure everyone around you is happy. At Meyer Prep, we take these mitzvot very seriously and our days have been action-packed with Purim activities! It was so nice to see many Meyer Prep families at the amazing PTO Purim Carnival! Thank you to our dedicated PTO for organizing such a wonderful event. To kick start the week of Purim our students enjoyed baking delicious hamantaschen with Rabbi Eli and Rabbi Yosef - we hope you were able to taste the love that went into baking them! This morning we enjoyed the Megillah reading and the amazing Purim costume contest! The costumes were creative and outstanding! Kol Hakavod to our 5th grade students for a beautiful Purim show - we are so proud of you!
