Help Charlotte’s Jewish Students Get a Teacher Work Day for Rosh HaShanah

For those of you who live in Charlotte, please help to make Rosh Hashanah a teacher workday on September 5, 2013. It will make a huge difference to our hundreds and hundreds of Beth El students who want to attend synagogue on the High Holy Days. For just this week, until January 14th, CMS is polling parents, students and general community members for input. Calendar Option A observes Thursday, September 5, 2013 (the first day of Rosh Hashanah) as a Teacher Workday. After the polling period ends, Superintendent Heath Morrison will review the results and evaluate comments to decide whether to recommend a revised calendar to the Board of Education.

Regardless of your personal connection to CMS schools, all community members are encouraged to vote and support our Jewish students and families at CMS. To see the calendars and then vote go to: http://www.cms.k12.nc.us/mediaroom/calendars/Pages/2013-2014CommunityCalendarPoll.aspx
