Hundreds of HALB elementary school children and parents came together last Sunday at the school’s new Hewlett Bay Park campus to have a blast and celebrate HALB in “full color.”
Donning T-shirts that started out white (but didn’t stay that way for long!), each grade ran together along a track manned by parent volunteers who showered the runners in color as they passed each mark. HALB’s middle school principal, Rabbi Lubetski, ran alongside his children, and Rabbi Yehudah Fogel ran alongside his talmidim.
In addition to the run, students had their faces painted, refreshed themselves with Rita’s ices, and enjoyed delicious pizza.
The event was coordinated by HALB’s Women’s League and chaired by parent volunteers Ariella Freundlich and Hannah Berry.
